The real problem is this a migraine isn t just a headache, it s a nerve storm that can last for days, and even when it s over, it isn t really over As a lifelong migraine sufferer, I was so happy to read a book that so accurately portrays what it s like to live with this misunderstood and debilitating illness I m fortunate in that I ve only had a handful of migraines that lasted than 3 days, and I ve only had to seek help at the ER one time But chronic headache pain is exhausting Vertigo is the worst And the post headache hangover is nearly as bad as the headache itself.I m fortunate that I know many of my triggers and can avoid them as best I can But sometimes migraines sneak up on you and land you in bed for 2 days for no good reason.If you or someone you know suffers from migraine, you might appreciate this book.

Disclaimer I was provided a copy of this book by NetGalley With The Migraine Mafia, Maia Sepp has written a book that rings so painfully true for migraine sufferers that you would be hard pressed not to find sympathy for the book s embattled heroine, Viive McBroom Not only does poor Viive pronounced Vee vuh have an impossible to pronounce Estonian name, but she suffers from debilitating migraines that affect her work, relationships and overall quality of life The book follows her struggles to find a way to make it from day to day, a better way to live her life one preferably eventually lived without migraines As a chronic migraine sufferer since middle school, I could sympathize with many of Viive s difficulties having to cancel plans at the last minute, worrying you re ruining another holiday meal, struggling to make it through a day at work Sepp relates all of this with the hands of a person who herself has felt the touch of chronic migraines on her life, as related to the reader in an author s note at the end of the book My one criticism of the book and how harsh a criticism could it be I still gave Migraine five stars is that Viive s husband, Nate, is a rather unconvincing character He first comes across as sympathetic and sweet, a level of nice that Viive feels she doesn t deserve Then, seemingly out of nowhere, he s given a pretty major flaw, in my eyes, and it s one I don t believe was necessary for the plot or character development. Another great read from Maia Sepp It s not easy to make a novel about migraines entertaining, but Sepp has somehow managed to do so With likable, quirky characters and vivid descriptions of headaches so fierce and powerful the reader almost feels as though she he might be experiencing one, The Migraine Mafia is a unique, unconventional novel that depicts the reality of living with a chronic illness. Good insight for migraineurs or the ones who love them Delivered in an amusing way, novel form, the story centers around the protagonist Viive, who suffers from debilitating migraines who is on the search for her new normal. I ve never really read a book and felt like I, myself, was the narrator THE MIGRAINE MAFIA by Maia Sepp changed that I ve never connected so wholeheartedly with a novel my story was her story And because of that, this book gets a rare 5 star review.RELEASE DATE December 2013PUBLISHER Create SpaceDISCLAIMER Novel sent via NetGallery in exchange for a honest reviewSYNOPSIS On paper, Viive McBroom lives the perfect life a key player in a fast paced, technical field, one promotion away from real success but that s if you ignore one small problem Sandwiched between one migraine and the next, Viive s life is kind of like those choose your own adventure books you read as a kid, only less fun and with a lot drugs And lately, as her bosses politely usher her toward a vacation that might never end, even the good days feel like a struggle for survival Faced with frustration from her loved ones and the dark machinations of a new coworker, Viive is getting pulled under by guilt, apologies, and professional shenanigans Then she meets the Migraine Mafia, a quirky, vibrant support group, and her fragile camouflage begins to crumble She discovers that a room full of strangers just might be able to change the way she views her illness and realizes that if she doesn t learn to ask for help, her health isn t the only thing she stands to lose Sometimes painful, frequently hilarious, never dull, The Migraine Mafia is the story of one woman s life altering decision to thrive in the face of chronic illness.REVIEW First and foremost, I will explain I ve suffered from migraines since I was a little girl I can actively remember Christmas of my playful childhood years dinner at my grandparents, playing with the cousins, dressed up in our best Christmas dresses.and nursing a migraine I was under the age of 10 before I had my first CAT scan Now, looking at my twenties in the rear view mirror, migraines are very much a part of my life Nutritionists, specialists, chiropractors, acupuncturists all be damned Nothing works So imagine my refreshing relief when I see my life played out in the character of Viive in THE MIGRAINE MAFIA Viive is a successful technical engineer, married happily, Toronto based female who s love and dedication you can see within everything she does Only problem Her chronic sickness that rules her life migraines Viive lifes a great life sandwiched between the migraines that leave her unsteady, unresponsive, and at worst, unconscious Her life is spent in a glazed haze of pharmaceuticals that not only make her a complete walking timebomb, but only manage to keep the migraines at bay temporarily Her life is a bunch of cancelled plans, disappointment, and what ifs When a promised promotion slips through her fingers because of her chronic illness, Viive begins to understand that she is no longer in control of her own body her migraines are Seeking support, she finds THE MIGRAINE MAFIA, a grouping of adults who not only sympathize but understand what Viive s going through Through the mafia, Viive begins to understand that the only person who can take control of her life is herself.migraines be damned The author Sepp must be a migraine sufferer herself or she did a hell of a lot of research Sepp s portrayal of those stuck in the chronic illness of migraines is SPOT ON Literally As I said earlier, Viive s voice is my own Viivie s story is my own, just a chapter ahead I ve literally never highlighted so much text and quotes in my life everything that Viive said is a truth that migraine sufferers can understand Just for Sepp s sympathetic and realistic portrayal of a migraine suffered, this novel deserves a 5 star review This book is so much than just migraine s though it s proof that those who are living with chronic illness are not alone We are given acknowledgement that chronic illness isn t just in our heads , and that understanding from our fellow friends and families are often hard to come by a character even states to the sufferer that it s just a headache it s hard for those who do not deal with it to understand the severity of the problems at hand This novel is proof that the isolation we feel isn t always the case there are always people out there who understand, whether they are in the form of a supportive husband of a mafia group of supporters There were a few tidbits that I wish we could have expanded on the husband s gambling problem Viive s future plans for her own business etc , but I am willing to ignore them over the importance of the bigger picture this novel portrays For anyone suffering from any sort of chronic illness and feels alone THE MIGRAINE MAFIA is for you FAVOURITE QUOTES You d think it would be relaxing, all that nothing But migraine sleep isn t authentic REM packed rest It s like being unconscious coma lite Chapter 3 Of course, one of the very worst things about migraine is that it makes the future a complete unknown Chapter 4 The real problem is this a migraine isn t just a headache, it s a nerve storm that can last for days, and even when it s over, it isn t really over That s because it s book ended by two nasty phases The quirky symptoms I get before an attack vision problems, balance problems, projectile vomiting are the prodrome, but there s also an ugly post migraine backlash called the postdrome At that juncture it feels like someone s taken my brain out of my body, shaken it, and then put it back in my head Chapter 4 This book was awesome for someone like me The author perfectly described what it s like to live day to day with an invisible chronic illness I felt like it was my story in so many ways, like I was reading about myself and the inner turmoil I go through along with the pain It was hard to read at times, but in the end it was very inspiring and motivating I m so glad that I came across this book.
