Anything But This is a guide on how to deal with migraine, by somebody who has lived with it for over three decades.
Having tried various things, including medicines, the author, takes the reader into the world of a migraineur, and how he deals with it, learning to live with it, knowing that the disease will not go and medicines will not be of help.
The book, through a fine mix of poetry, self-deprecatory humour lists some of the ways, which can help a migraineur deal with this common, and irritatingly tough problem.
So, read the story of a migraineur, who:
Never gets bored.
Blames his sickness for his poetry skills.
Is scared of movie theatres.
Is selfish enough not to stop driving a car or going for a trek.
Took to cheating on tests even after studying hard.
Mocks his suffering.
Can be funny even when he’s in terrible pain.
And tells you further that Migraines don’t have to hurt all the time mentally or physically. Follow the steps in the book and lessen your suffering.
