It is a daily struggle

I have been having migraines for 5 years now but lately it is been a daily struggle. I have been with the same company for 3 years everything was going great but these past 2 months have been terrible. I could say why suddenly am I so stressed out?

I used to love talking to my co workers but nowadays I’d rather avoid hope they don’t talk to me but of course my boss is always says smile which adds more stress. I have been missing more work lately due to my headache which of course is never a a good thing. I constantly worry about my headaches because they are always there I worry it is a brain tumor which my psychologist says it isn’t but I always fear the worst. I’m tired of living in fear and I’m tired of having constant headaches. I just want to be the normal girl without headaches and without anxiety.

    I am hanging in there thankfully as i said it isn’t cancerous and they will be able to remove it although I am scared because of the surgery I know I have to do it otherwise I’d be in pain. I am just glad I caught it in the nick of time:)

    You are a very special person. It’s not everyone who is allowed to suffer from migraine. May I suggest you begin looking for different ways, like this blog,0 to express yourself, as you may never again be the girl you used to be. Learn to love the new you. My sister often reminds me this is my “new normal”. It’s irritating to hear but I find it is true.

    Hi Daisy, We’re glad that you’re here. I absolutely hear you. When I am struggling, I’d much rather be left to my own devices. You’re absolutely not alone. Anxiety is a common comorbidity with migraine. Have you talked to your doctor about treatment options for your anxiety? Please know we’re always here to share support. -Warmly, Donna (Migraine.com team)

    I have terrible news 🙁 I went to the ER after my migraines just didn’t seem like the normal migraine. I got a CT scan and they found out i had a cyst on my brain ( according to the doctors) it is about 3 cm thankfully it isn’t cancerous but it is still a concern. The doctor has to run more tests and more Ct scans to I’m still scared as anybody would be. I am thankful I followed my gut and decided to go to the er otherwise I wouldn’t of known.
