Migraines And Depression Linked To Brain Size — Laura’s Tough Admission

I made an admission this morning, that admittedly, wasn’t that easy to do. After all, I’m kind of charged with bringing you upbeat and energetic entertainment every morning. However, I’m also human.

My admission? I’ve suffered from severe migraines since fourth grade. No big deal, right?

Well, I’ve also battled depression for the better part of the past 20 years. Like a lot of sufferers, I’ve felt the sting of social stigma against it. But as I accepted my “fate”, I also accepted that it’s a simple chemical deficiency I have and is nothing to be ashamed of. If I were diabetic, would I be hesitant to say I took insulin? Nope. So, if you have also had a brush with the big D, you’re not alone. Not by a long shot.

But I bring up these things because a recent study has linked brain size to both. If you suffer from BOTH migraines and depression, your brain is probably 2 percent smaller than normal. The good news is, it’s not really enough to make a noticeable difference in how smart you are. But if you’re concerned about brain-shrinkage, they say B12 is a good supplement choice…2.4 micrograms, or about what’s in 3 oz. of steak or five eggs.

WHEW. Not only do I love steak and eggs, I also feel a sense of relief for admitting that to you. So, carry on! :)
