Even Pokémon Get MigraineLast Updated:
I must confess. The Pokémon Go craze has invaded my house.
My granddaughter is obsessessed with Pokémon, especially Pikachu. She’s only two, so she’s still learning to talk. Pikachu comes out “pi-chu.”
“Pi-chu peeze,” comes with a cheesy smile and bright blue eyes whenever she wants to watch an episode. She celebrated a Pokémon-themed birthday party about a month ago. Then just two days ago, she eagerly wandered the neighborhood with her mommy in search of pokémon.
She so cute about it, who wouldn’t want to “catch ’em all” with her?
It’s been many years since my children were young enough to collect all things Pokémon, so I don’t remember much. I do remember feeling sorry for Psyduck, though.
Misty wasn’t very happy about training it. She was impatient and irritated with all of Psyduck’s headaches. It took her awhile to appreciate its unique psychic powers that only appeared when the headache worsened. Even though most Pokémon fans know of Psyduck’s psychic powers, it still isn’t a very popular pokémon.
Maybe Psyduck actually has migraine?
After all, my superpowers are greatly enhanced as a migraine attack worsens. Migraine gives me extraordinary senses of sight, sound, and smell. I can even perceive things that no one else can. Like Psyduck, the more powerful the pain, the bigger the hole in my memory. When I used to work, my team members would get annoyed with my frequent headache pain. People underestimate me, too.
Do you have any migraine co-workers or employees? Like Psyduck, they require the proper care and training if they are to reach their full potential. In the right environment, they can thrive, eventually becoming a valued member of the team.
The trick is to recognize their unique worth. They will never be as personable as Pikachu or as powerful as Charmander. They don’t need to be — you have plenty of those on your team already.
