You really can't understand it till you experience it
I started getting migraines at age 13 and they've only gotten worse since then. quickly I discovered the trend between my migraines and my period so I started taking the pill continuesly to hopefully suppress those. I was still in the chronic area though getting 3+ a week. My mom also gets migraines most likely the reason I have them and she's the only person I feel really understands it. Friends, family, bosses, all think I'm overreacting and too sensitive it really is difficult, I think the only way you can understand it though is to experience it.
