How can you explain?

How can you explain the daily pain of migraines to someone? How can you explain the stabbing knife feeling to your head or the pain that's shooting from front to back? How can you explain the bright lights, noise, fatigue, dizziness, spots in your eyes or the nausea? How can you explain that you think at times you're going crazy, that this isn't really happening? How can you explain what all of the pain and medication has done to you? How do you explain that you just can't get up today? How do you explain that I want to go be with you but I can't today? How do you keep family close when migraines tend to push them away?

Just how do you explain that kind of pain?
