Migraine Sucks The Life Out Of You
I started having migraines as a child. Luckily they were few and far between until I hit my 20’s. They then steadily began to increase. Once every few months, then monthly, then weekly. I turn 29 next month and I have a migraine every. Single. Day. It feels like a miracle if I have a pain-free day.
Migraine has changed my life
I had to resign from my dream job because I physically couldn’t function. I began to lose friendships because I couldn’t go out whenever I wanted. I’m exhausted of being the flaky friend who always cancels. I’m so tired of not being able to do the things that I used to love. I’m so sick of hearing “of course you have a migraine, what’s new?” or “that’s convenient” from my family members. Chronic migraines are literally sucking the life out of me.
How much has your migraine disease changed or evolved over time?
