I'm in love with a woman who has migraines

My girlfriend I adore, she has had bad migraines since she was a teenager. She takes medications for it. Some are opioids. Some of them make her sick. She sleeps a lot, I wish I could take her pain away. I love and accept her as she is. Sometimes it's hard to relate because I don't have her pain. I see her in pain and it makes me sad. But I love her unconditionally. Her medications worry me, I wonder about her organs like her liver etc. She says the doctor said they are normal. Some days I wish I could have her pain. I'm coping the best I can. She amazes me how she copes and still smiles.
