Since my son gave me the link to this site, I have become bolder and bolder in reaching out. today I am posting a question as often I feel so alone as a migraine suffer because it is not every day you meet someone and you say "Oh I suffer from debilitating migraines." and their reply is, "No, way me too! We should support one another!!" Usually I get, "I found this site, this pill, this article/book, deficiency in you, etc. that will help you migraines to go away because it helped so and so." I feel so emotionally tired, on top of the tiredness from the pain. Well, on to the question. I have suffered with migraines for 25+ years now. My husband and I thought I should take early retirement from my teaching career, thinking that would help loads. On the contrary. Over the past 5 years my migraines have increase exponentially, to the point that I can have a migraine that will string along from 3 months varying only in pain intensity. When I tell people this, even my husband sometimes they look at me like I've lost my mind. Well, now I'm beginning to think I have. I feel like I have lost my life and a LOT of relationships; and most of my my time is spent alone in a dark room. I just feel as if I disappoint so many! Is there anyone out there that has migraines that last so long...since September I feel like I've been one long migraine and if I step out of line I infuriate it! I'll leave the insurance change of meds out of the question and how that has impacted the issue. Sorry it's such a long question and thanks for reading!
