Monster Migraines and Parents

Had a monster migraine last night, my first in a few years. I used to be a chronic migraine sufferer, but relaxation techniques and Excedrin saved the day. It was brought on by stress and self-pressure over a new writing project. When I realize the attitudes and impulses my parents planted in me (and how they still surface after all these years), I shudder to think how I've affected my own grown children.

But I suppose we all feel that way....

My parents gave me so much. I am grateful. You can only truly forgive your parents their imperfections once you have parented for a while.
