Spouses and Migraine Disease

If you suffered Migraine before you were married as much as you do now, do you think your spouse would have stuck by your side?

One of the worst and best things a headache specialist/neurologist ever told me was something like this:

“Do you know how incredibly lucky you are that your husband has stuck by your side through all of this? Most marriages could never survive everything yours has withstood.”

It was the best because it reminded me how much my family loves me.

It was the worst because it reminded me that I have put my family through so much, that it becomes not a normal fact, but an astonishing fact that they are still with me. This thought makes me sick to my stomach.

When I was 18 and engaged, I didn’t yet have my diagnosis of Migraine Disease — that wouldn’t come until later. I did have other diagnoses however, including one that was potentially life threatening and disfiguring. I had Lupus.

I actually got my Lupus diagnosis while back in Oregon planning our wedding, and it came from a dermatologist I had visited for odd “spots” that were causing minor scarring. They were spreading across my face and down my chest.

I was horrified. And scared.

I loved my fiance’ enough that I felt the only right thing to do was to release him from his promise to marry me. I couldn’t bear the thought that I would be the one responsible for dragging him into a life where everything was going to be so hard. A life where he lived with the burden of a wife, instead of the gift of a wife was not what I wanted for him or for myself. I didn’t know what else to do, so I called it off.

He wouldn’t let me call it off. I loved him so much that I let him talk me back into it, but not a day goes by that I don’t wonder if he has ever wished himself back. If, knowing what he knows now, he would have married someone else instead of me.

There are days now that I remind him that he had the chance to get out of life with me and didn’t take it. It tends to be our own little private joke (until now anyway!) But there is a sense of seriousness as well.

We have been married nearly 29 years now. It’s sometimes difficult at this point to tell where he leaves off and I begin. On one hand, we drive each other crazy with our differences, but on the other hand we know each other so well and are such good partners in this life, I would be lost without him. It hasn’t always been that way though…

In the beginning he didn’t understand. We fought. We made up. Always, there was the knowledge in the back of my brain that I knew the next time I couldn’t get something done or be somewhere on time we would be fighting about it again. At first we agreed to disagree, but eventually he began to understand what I was living through. It took about 20 years to happen, but it did. We loved each other enough to work it out.

I have many friends with Migraine Disease who have not been as lucky as we have been. I’ve seen marriages dissolve, families become estranged from one another, and relationships fall apart. I’ve seen my partnerless/spouseless friends hurt because they know that it is going to be much more difficult for them to find happiness because of this monster they can’t control.

Being chronically ill makes people selfish. It’s the nature of the beast and I don’t know anyone who is immune to it — myself especially. I forget that my spouse had no idea what he was going to be in for when he married me. I forget that he worries and works so hard because he’s married to a chronically ill wife. On those rare occasions when we truly have a fight, I forget that sometimes he’s lashing out because of the frustration he normally won’t let me see. I am used to being protected that way. If he lashes out at me, I take it personally and have to remind myself that he’s being hurt by my illness too.

I have never asked my spouse if he would have made the same choice then if he knew everything he knows now. I’m not sure I really want to know that answer. Right now, I’m just happy that he loved me enough to stick with me and is strong enough to put up with me 🙂

One thing I did notice is that — because of my Migraine especially — anything related to my chronic illness is a very touchy subject. It’s super easy to set me off because I feel so guilty about everything I have put my family through. Just because I know intellectually that this is hard on him too, doesn’t mean I feel it when he’s getting angry or frustrated over something.

I guess what I’m saying is, relationships are really hard. They take work every hour of every day. I had to learn how to fall in love with my spouse every day when I wake up in the morning. And yes, it is a conscious choice. You know how they say ‘hindsight is 20-20’? It’s true. And the toughest part of that is that you have to make it through the mess to turn around and realize it was worth it in the first place.

Do you have a spouse that has stuck with you through your Migraine Disease? Do you have any encouragement for those that might be going through an especially bad time right now?

You’ve made it through some rough times with your spouse. How does that make you feel? Have you talked to your spouse about it?

    Hi Ellen, I haven’t been on in awhile. Will post my past 2 years of migraines and sicknesses another time.
    But wanted to say regarding this post…..my husband and I started dating at 15 and 16 years of age, he knew about my migraines way back then. Six years later we were married, he coped with me then and still does, he lives my pain with me, after almost 55 years! We have had lots of issues though…not being able to enjoy many things, like outings or social events many times but he has never belittled me or been angry with me because of the migraines or any other many illnesses I have!
    If a boyfriend or husband cannot try to understand a migraine, just lead them to Migraine.com….it just might enlighten them! I did this for a couple of friends…they were shocked at what they read!!
    AND after all these years suffering with migraines (73), even last night at my son’s 50th birthday party….someone made a hurtful comment like, “well, you came out of your daily dark room!” I didn’t even know she knew about that!!! “Someone” has been telling tales…and it hurts ’cause I know who it was!!!! You just never know who you can trust, even an in law! I am still in shock!!! But I will get over it….I have dealt with a lot of sad remarks over the years!
    Anyway, after showing anyone who doesn’t understand migraine pain, this website, should be an eye opener. Good luck and God Bless.

    I had migraines when I married my husband 11 years ago, but since then, they have continued to escalate to the point where I’m sick every day. I feel so guilty because I can’t do all of the things I did before like grocery shop (thank goodness for Walmart delivery), cook dinner, do the laundry, clean my house, etc. My husband is a saint to have lived through all of this with me. We can never make plans because we just end up canceling. I can no longer work and I made about half of our family’s income. Sometimes I can hear it in his voice that he is very frustrated with me and my chronic migraines. Then I feel so guilty and like such a burden to my family, it just adds to my already severe depression. I feel just like the author of this article. I encourage my husband to go ahead and make plans without me. But inside I knows it’s really affecting our marriage. I’ve asked him if he would prefer to be out of this situation and free to be with a “healthy” woman and he always says no, but secretly, I’m not really sure. I wish I could be free of this awful disease but instead it keeps escalating. Not very many people talk about this aspect of migraine disease and how many times I feel like my family would be better off without me. Thank-you for writing this article, it helps to know others are going through the same issue with their spouses and family.

    Lifetime Migraine Sufferer,
    Thanks for sharing your perspective. You’re right we don’t talk about how it affects our relationships very often. Feeling guilty is such a hard feeling to overcome. I’m sure that my boyfriend thinks about what it would be like to not have to think about how I’m feeling today, but I can’t help it and this is our reality. The fact that he doesn’t make me feel guilty is amazing and I’m lucky. The guilt comes from me. It’s not always healthy to think about what could be, but be happy with what is. Your family would never be better off without you!

    My Husband knew how bad my migraines were when we married but sadly they have increased in frequency. I feel daily guilt for the impact they have on our life together. I can only work part time (if I can work at all) and when I’m not at work I spend my time ill or resting. I do not like to be fussed over when I’m ill and he knows to leave me and I’ll come and find him when I’m recovered. It must be so hard to be married to a migraneur. I often ask him if he wishes he hadn’t married me which makes him cross but I do sometimes wonder. The pressure of him being the breadwinner, worries for the future and just generally caring for me can’t be easy. I was always very honest about my health issues but neither of us knew they would get worse and I would develop new ones – in essence he didn’t sign up for the life we have now. He says I take good care of him on the rare occasion he gets sick but really there is no way I can repay his kindness over the years. If I had a magic wand I would wish to be well and if I couldn’t have that I would turn back time and make him call off our wedding. In reality we are very happily married and after seven years still very much in love. We live a quiet life but the days/hours I am well we really make the most of. I think I’ve got life bad but his is worse and he doesn’t have to live like this. He’s my hero and I love him xx

    Today is a bad day. I woke up hurting. My husband brought me morning coffee as he does every morning he leaves for work and kissed me goodbye. He felt my tears in the dark and asked what was wrong. I told him and told him I was sorry. He asked why I would be sorry. I just felt like he must be tired of hearing me say I hurt. I am blessed. Tomorrow is our 34th wedding anniversary. I have a good man who loves me through all of it as I choose to also do for him. I saw my dad love and commit to my mom as she suffered with blindness, stroke and other illness for years. I know I went into marriage with the understanding there would be hard times but it was forever. I also married my best friend. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes we think each other is an alien, but tenaciousness and a good sense of humor help. Thank the people in your life who are faithful in their love to you. Still date one another, remember that first love and nurture it. Most of all thank God for the spouse who holds you over the toilet when you can barely walk, makes compresses for your head, cares that the weather or smells affect your migraine and tells you they would marry you all over again, even on a day you do not like your peri menopausal self!

    I have been married for 30 years. Through those years the headaches and migraines have increased. My husband has taken me to the emergency, picked up meds, picked up dinner, made dinner, done the chores and many other things. Sometimes he is not there for me emotionally. It hurts him to be around me when I am in pain so he leaves me alone. I understand but don’t like it. I feel very blessed to have him in my life.

    Ellen you are lucky. But if I had migraines prior we would not have been married. My spouse is not emotionally supportive. We got married in 1982 and I started getting migraines in 1987. When they got more severe in 2010 he got less supportive. So no. He has been less and less emotionally supportive as time has gone on. Everyone else is so very, very lucky to have a supportive spouse and I am happy for you all. The Migraine Monster has driven a wedge but it’s also the way he was raised. His mother had to care for a very sick child and had to move away with her a few years to Arizona to save her life years ago as that was the only way to treat severe asthma. The mother hated and resented the daughter ever since for disrupting her life. So he was raised in that atmosphere with that kind of example. I know each individual can choose the excuse to follow in a parents bad example and live in the way they were raised or chose to grow up and live a different way instead of repeating the cycle of emotional abuse. I think I’ve taken on the role of his sister he’s taken on the role of his mother. sounds sick but I know how his sister feels. You cannot be sick in that family or you get treated as a leper.

    Julie, I am so sorry to hear your emotional pain. You are very perceptive to see what must be occurring. It is tragic that a mom would act like that. My oldest son is on disability for asthma. Our whole family made sacrifices for years because you just do what you need to do. No one wants to not be able to breathe and no one wants to have a migraine. I pray his eyes are opened and he becomes more tender to you. Hang in there.

    When Kevin & I started dating, I was 19 and had maybe 3 migraines a year. Last year they spiked and I am now averaging 4 a week. I spend days in the dark in pain and its easy for me to focus on what I am going on and to forget what he’s dealing with too. He HATES seeing me in this much pain- he’s as helpless in all of this as I am. My house is a dark, quiet cave and I am often either grumpy or out of it due to my pain meds. I have to cancel plans, forget to pay bills, leave the house dirty….because I am so preoccupied by my own issues. I am looking to take some time off work hopefully and he has not once complained about the money we will be losing. I am so blessed to have him care, to check on me when I’m sleeping, to kiss my forehead when I hurt. I THANK GOD for my husband, I would fall into an abyss without him helping to keep my spirits up. I love you Kevin. And THANK YOU to all of the other spouses/mates of my fellow migraineurs. You are VALUED!

    Oh, how we are loved!
    My husband knew Bout my migraines when we were dating and when he would sit with me for hours and sometimes days in the dark my family and I couldn’t believe it. We were both in college and too young to be dealing with such a real pain. (I had migraines since early childhood, so the pain was somewhat normal for me.)
    During our engagement period, I had maybe 3 migraines during those 11 months. It literally was a miracle that I made it through all of the planning and excitement pain free.
    One month after our wedding day, the migraines came back strong and relentless. I cried and cried as he supported me. I felt unworthy to be a wife and incapable to serve and love my husband as he deserved. Then, I realized the pain was just as hard for him as it was for me. Seeing the woman he loved in bed 4-7 days a month screaming in pain and sleeping for days was not what he wanted for me.
    As we try different diets, change medications, and alter our lifestyles to prevent migraines, we grow closer every day while learning more and more about the secrets and unwanted surprises of migraines.

    I know that I’m beyond blessed to have good days and that my migraines change from chronic to episodic every few years. I just wanted to share my story out of gratitude for my husband and his love. There is always hope that one day I will be pain free for good, but until then I will practice not being so hard on myself with these uncontrollable and often unpredictable Migraines.
    My prayer for any reader is that you can love yourself with our without pain and know it is not your or your spouse’s fault. I still struggle with these ideas, but it is important to be reminded.

    I am going to comment on the migraine’s or cronic pain and my husband. ALl my medical problems started after we were married and I was sick more than I was better and we had 2 little boys and my husband had a very important job and worked basically 24 hrs when need be. Their were days.weeks where I could not get out of bed to eat or even take care of myself say nothing about our kids. I think at first it was very hard on Geoff but he also said I married you for better or worse and sick or poor and to this day he has stuck by my side 110%! I am VERY lucky to have such a wonderful husband, basically everything was put on him, getting them to and from daycare the routine at home at night, not to mention the grocery shopping but the worst was the financial loss of me not being able to work during those down times.
    I stressed about money and if he did he didn’t let me see it, he always said it will work out!
    We will be married 25 years in March and Geoff has stuck by my side thru 15 major surgeries plus the cronic migraines STILL. He knows I just want to be left alone in a dark room, he comes in to check on me to see if he can get me anything. He is an absoulte angel, I feel like he takes care of me like a child but he has been so supportive, if it was reverse its terrible to say I don’t know if I would be as kind and nurturing as he has been.
    So for all of you out their suffering medical conditions, oh I also have cronic fatigue syndrome so I am exhausted 24/7, I usually sleep 16 hours a day, which means I don’t get much done in the house, so Geoff does that also. Now it would be different of Geoff had a normal Mon-Fri 9-5 job but he is a Regional Mgr for a Restaurant Co. so he is on call 24 hrs and works 50-60 hrs a week and then at night he works in his office. I have always said I have no idea how he can handle the stress of all his stores plus our house and me and our kids, he just has a wonderful outlook on life and doesn’t let it get to him.
    With my migraines/Cronic Fatugue Syndrome I either sleep all the time or never so I have resorted to my own bedroom, that is hard on Geoff but he has accepted it because he knows if I get my sleep I will feel better, so naturally it affects our sex life, where again he is a true saint! He just keeps saying one of these days you will feel better and we will have to make up for lost time, so I don’t stress about him leaving me!
    Anyway I wanted to share my possitive story, it definately has not been easy as I have a lot of guilt for all the kids games I missed in High School or family functions but it is what it is and I must move forward. I hope if you are going thru something like this that you have a husband as understanding as mine otherwise I think the stress would make everything worse.
    Hang in their stay possitive, and hopefully one day they will find a cure or we will out grow them.
    Thanks for letting me share my story.

    I have a wonderful husband who has stood by me at every turn, good or bad. Yes, it has been difficult and he has had his difficult days when he has thought about leaving, but he is the kind of man who could never leave me. We were apart at one point in our courtship (he went off to college-we are high school sweethearts) and he knew then that he wanted to be with me always and I with him. God has blessed our love and given us the strength to go through so much together and we will continue to be together til death do we part. Through the years he has had friends who can’t understand how he stays with me, and at times he doesn’t understand either, but we have managed to beat the odds. I thank God each day for him. He is my rock here on earth and keeps me sane and takes care of me no matter what I need. I am so blessed.

    My husband was my boyfriend when we married in the middle of my sickness. He thought as I that it was going away, but I have hemiplegic migraine, ocular on rt side and basilar migraine. I have gotten worst. I have lots of guilt that I am not the same; he is still here and supportive. He started a company called gemAssist to help me inform others about hemiplegic migraine but I call it neuro illness due to it is nuero. I have with his help developed an trademark pin to wear and have been in my local newspaper. I want people to know how differicult life can be with these types of migraines and also to learn how to help yourself. I use biofeedback to help control the “aura”; to help control the breathing during pain. Also, that there are places online to get proper information as this site. My state does not have a migraine specialist therefore it complicated my issues and so I ended up with a mild stroke which the end result I found an excellent doctor who is a brain specialist. Back to spouse so you see after all these complications, we have both been disappointed but the love is there to keep us together. We laugh sometimes about this mission of mine concerning the awareness that it will never be recognized, but he loves me and lets me try anyway so maybe just maybe I have helped someone so they can be better educated about migraines and brain nuero diseases. Hope this helps someone!

    Dear Ellen and Ellen’s husband, thank you.

    Thank you for being supportive of one another, and giving others hope. I feel guilty every day that I’ve ruin my husband’s life. Even though we’ve been together for 27 years, every time I see couples jogging, riding bikes, eating at any restaurant they want, and traveling, the guilt returns.

    I’m terrified to travel, because I don’t want to be away from my doctors or pharmacy. I’m terrified to eat at restaurants because they might not not think they are adding MSG to their dishes, but unless they read every ingredient in every sauce or spice they use, they might inadvertently be adding it to their dishes. I can’t ride a bike or jog, because I can’t jostle my head the wrong way or the pain will knock me out. So my husband takes the dogs for a walk without me; my friends go to restaurants without me.

    I’ve suffered from migraines all of my life. But I was only diagnosed in 2005. My husband has stood by me through thick and thin, and I cannot thank him enough.

    I just pray that they find a cure, that the government supports the research, and that the insurance agencies recognize that we’re not a bunch of drug addicts that are enjoy taking pain killers, but that we need the pain killers to actually kill the debilitating pain.

    I have had chronic daily non-refractory migraines with hemiplegic auras & migraine-induced seizures since massive head trauma at the age of 20. Now, at the age of 39, I have no recollection of what it feels like not to be in some sort of pain whatsoever. My husband & I met when we were 28. As soon as I realized this was THE guy I told him the full extent of my condition, that no preventative or abortive medications had yet proved effective at medically acceptable doses, that I had accompanying nuero phenomena & that my overall condition was showing signs of being progressive. Then I told him if he wanted out now, I would understand. We have been married now for 10 years, have 2 wonderful daughters, & my ciondition has in fact proven to be progressive. In fact I go into the hospital next week to confirm a secondary diagnosis of migraine-induced epileptic episodes. Though we have had a couple rough runs due to my headaches, I still have one of the best marriages of most people I know. My husband has stood by me, supported me & is probably the only other person in the world who truly understands how I, as an individual feel. We are still very much in love & have a wonderful family. I have learned through biofeedback & other methods to control, or rather function through all but the most severe pain, & although for me this means much of what I enjoy is experienced through an underlying fog that won’t go away, I think we have a good life overall. Maybe better than most. I do see a therapist most every week after a period during which I was managing during the day but becoming irritable in the evenings when we were together. This is helping tremendously. My husband isn’t a saint – he just loves me I suppose & can see me for what I am beyond the disease – sometimes better than I can myself. Am I afraid he’ll get fed up one day & leave?? Yes. But then I tell myself there has never been a minute since we’ve been together that he’s given me any reason to think this way. It just takes the right kind of person I guess. Or maybe I’m really lucky. I don’t know.

    I am so grateful for my husband. I don’t know what I would do without him since I’m a chronic migraineur. When we were dating I was so physically fit and healthy, except for those occasional “sinus infections”. I have felt so bad for him, that he’s gotten the short end, but he’s so caring. I think he’s a natural born caretaker. When we were dating he was often taking care of his elderly mother. He’s also such a hard worker too. I just wish I could cook for him – and so does he! But the odors just sicken me. Ugh! I hate that. But he is a good cook, and he likes cooking, but I know he wishes I could too. I do clean though, one thing he does NOT do! And I have to do that with a mask over my nose and mouth. It helps. The biggest thing is his love and empathy. And….we still manage to have fun, laughs, and love!

    I suffered a migraine everyday of my pregnancy and I got pregnant 2 months after I got married. I learned real quickly that my husband wasn’t going to stand by my side.

    My husband married me at the height of my migraine suffering. He has been so amazingly understanding.

I’m not sure I could do it without his support.

    I had migraines when I was married, but they didn’t go chronic until we’d been married for 6 years. 6 years later and he’s still by my side. We talk about how it impacts our relationship frequently. I frequently feel guilty, but he frequently takes care of me. He cries with me sometimes. He wants to fix me, but doesn’t know how. I don’t always know what to tell him, but he tries to be patient with my limitations. I think I got very lucky, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I didn’t frequently beat myself up for feeling as if I have burdened him.

    My Husband knew about my Migranes when he married me, but he wanted to be with me anyway.And right after we got married I also developed some other Health isusses and it got to a point where I couldn’t work anymore.So he had to take on all the Responsibilitys of not only providing for a ready made Family , but also a sick Wife and ailing Parents.Many times he held my Hair back while I was vomitting or walk me to the Bathroom.Even thou its been a struggle at times and yes he get stressed out, never once has he made me feel guilty.He is so supportive and I can talk to him about anything.Our Life is not perfect, but we love each other very much and we get our strength from God and I thank him each day that I get to spend with this wonderful Man.

    I love hearing where people actually get what God is all about; to your husband and you yes you do have struggles but you’re also part of a dying breed in this world two that stick it out no matter what comes its all part of growing spiritualy may God bless you both with many years of health, happiness, prosperity but most of all love.

    I will say it hasn’t been easy on my husband but, he has stuck by my side. He’s educates himself on my migraines. He also, does all he can around the house to help out. I know its stressful on him but, he loves me uncondtional. He is absolutely fantastic and I know he wouldn’t leave me because of my migraine disease. Its not easy living this way but, together we work really hard to make the best of everyday. I love you my husband more then works can express!
