Danni, if your migraines are anything like mine, then I think you would be better off in bed letting your poor body recuperate. I doubt very much if you would even be 'maintaining' and would probably slow down the healing process. Of course it all depends on what your 'trigger' is for the migraine. For me, (extreme) lack of sleep, stress and too much chocolate combine to give me a migraine (and tonsillitis, though I have my doubts about the chocolate contributing to the tonsillitis
)<P>Therefore in my case, rest is the only thing that allows me to get better...<P>I've read the unmaking of a dancer and you know, many people didn't like it, but I did. It's very negative, but also very realistic - especially for those of us who got left behind. It was the only autobiography I read without the twinge of jealousy, one that never glossed over the nitty gritty - instead emphasised it. I enjoyed reading a book that wasn't all about the tumultuous life of a dancer who still managed to sail serenely through a magical ballet career. Still its depressing...and really does focus on the negative. Yet i loved it for its honesty - from the classic stage mother to eating disorders, to classroom competition and bitchiness and the bitterness of missing out... you name it its here in full technicolour description..
