My Invisible Enemy

Nobody believes in my country that our job is the hardest among all jobs especially when you have a migraine. Hi my name is modi and I’m a teacher with a really wicked migraine. I think I had it most of my life. It comes so strong that I just lay down and cry cause nothing can make it go or make it less hurting. Other times it just hangs there in my head for about 4 days or weeks refusing to go away. I’m sure you know how is it hard to have something diging in your brain while you are teaching students who you can’t control in the same time. Also the irony is nobody knows that you are doing everything while you are suffering. In my country no one can understand what you are going through so I trained my self to live my life with my invisible enemy. Thank you. 😊

    Modi,
    It breaks my heart to hear how alone you feel in your illness. Jenn gave you some great links to read, but I also want to encourage you to get involved in discussions in our Forums section (under the community tab). You’ll meet others like you and can ask questions on how they handle their pain.

    You are not alone and please reach out or ask questions when you need support!
    -Best Wishes
