I’ll preface this with the fact that I’m really not sure where this best fits, so I hope it’s alright to post this question in this particular forum.
Basically, my question is would it be okay to wear sunglasses in church during Mass? (Also, I’m very open to any other suggestions!)
I get migraines a few times per week, and they are pretty bad. I don’t like letting them get in the way of my daily life an responsibilities, though. I have prescription Imitrex injections that I use when I get them, but often I’m still in pretty excruciating pain for a while.
At home, (and at work), I usually wear a pair of sunglasses while waiting for the pain and nausea to subside, because my sensitivity to light is pretty intense. Is this something that is a feasible option when I’m experiencing a migraine on a Sunday? Or does anyone else have any suggestions that may help? Maybe wearing my veil so that it covers my face, too?
I don’t really know. What I do know is that I just converted, and I’ve already missed Mass three times since Holy Saturday, which is very frustrating to me.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or helpful advice!
