Nausea is an integral part of my migraine experience, often the first symptom to appear and the last to leave.
My insides become my enemy, as if pressurized to the point I fear they might break through my abdomen and escape my body.
I am reduced to existing in a void filled only with pain.
This art a courtesy of PainExhibit.org, an online educational, visual arts exhibit from artists with chronic pain who use art to express some facet of the pain experience.
The Pain Exhibit’s mission is to educate healthcare providers and the public about chronic pain through art, and to give voice to the many who suffer in silence.
Pain Exhibit recently launched its new Spanish language website at PainExhibit.org/es.
