Hello. How do you all deal with or educate those not familiar with migraine without being rude? I am sure this is a somewhat common problem as most probably don't appear sick at least when their aura first appears. As a small business owner, it's frustrating to miss work and clients due to migraine but I know people talk. What co-workers and others fail to see is that for every missed hour at work I can match with a time I had to walk off a golf course mid round, or leave early during a dinner out, or walk out on a movie, or being on vacation and having to stay in a hotel room. So the point is it's not just work when migraines occur but I think for those that do not have migraine it is difficult to understand. Especially when you must go just when your aura first starts.
How do you all handle this? I am sure it is a common problem.
