Wellness Wednesday: Making Migraines Into Art, Video Game Addiction, Midlife Wellness
Migraines can be debilitating for those who suffer from them. Symptoms include vomiting, light sensitivity, and throbbing headaches. Artist Priya Rama had chronic migraines. At its worst, she had as many as 26 in a month.
As a way to remain calm and accept her situation, Rama began painting images she saw when she had headaches. She is now a full-time "migraine artist" and joins All Sides for Wellness Wednesday.
