I'm 62, have had migraines since menopause at 45. I read many posts and think I'm luckier than most. My migraines can be debilitating, have had strings of days that I couldn't move my head at all, many trips to the ER, etc. But I still work full time. Right now, I've had migraines straight for about 2 months. I'm exhausted and completely done. I go to work everyday-- I'm a medical secretary, have missed a few days and have left early several times lately. We're short staffed most days, which adds to the tension, and I constantly worry that I can't hold my end of things up. I hate letting people down, but then I find I'm really not taking care of myself like I should. I feel helpless and hopeless.
