Migraines/Daily severe headaches/bipolar.

I’m new here and thought I would tell everyone my story.
When I was 12, 33 years ago, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was surgically removed and within a month 2 more had grown back. They to were surgically removed and I’ve had no more since. BUT, I still get the debilitating migraines that I had with the tumors. I have finally been told that Botox is my last resort. I’m still not sure I want to go that route though. On top of the migraines, which I have 2 or 3 times a week, I also have severe daily headaches. Near in intensity as a full blown migraine. Then on top of that I was diagnosed as Bipolar 1 with mixed episodes and schizophrenic in 2013. I don’t know why life goes on. But that is my story.
