Every day

For the past three weeks I have experienced CONSTANT migraine (up till then I was getting one nearly everyday for the past few months). I had to be taken to A&E the other day it got so bad. Nothing found, just classic and truly chronic migraine. I wake up, go about my day (if you can call it that), then go to sleep, all in pain. They have been building in their rate and intensity over the course of the past two years. Tried beta blockers, triptans, RNase inhibitor, acupuncture, epilim chrono, a couple of antidepressants, massage therapy, psychotherapy, isolating food and environment triggers, painkillers, exercising, diet revision, TENS, nothing works.

 
I am twenty one years old and I feel like my life has been stolen from me. Don’t ask me how I’m managing, because I have absolutely no clue. I forget what it’s like to feel normal.

I would happily relinquish any aspirations I might have left if I could just feel healthy again.
