Your brain is not the enemy

Migraineurs have an acrimonious relationship with our own brains. We see our brains as the cause of our troubles, an enemy to be defeated (or destroyed). After all, we are told that it is within our brains that all the trouble starts. Neurotransmitters, coritcal spreading depression, overactive pain receptors, hypersensitivity to stimuli…it all happens in the brain.
