Woo’t fast?

I have never felt I could fast. I heard of it first as a young kid – maybe about Gandhi and other peace activists using it to help their causes – and I instantly thought “NOPE.”
But I didn’t really know why I had such a strong reaction to the idea of fasting.
I think I know now, though. Because of my migraine brain, I really couldn’t do such a thing without triggering a pretty severe migraine. Were I to fast, I’d just be writhing in the dark. I mean, pretty quickly that intentional fast would turn into an unintentional one – because if the migraine got bad, I for sure wouldn’t be able to eat anything without throwing up.
So. I would not fast. Not on purpose, no.
