Has being a person with chronic migraines hurt your life goals or dreams?

I am a male putting myself through school, working every day I’m at college and suffering from chronic migraines. When i miss days teachers or my boss thinks I’m just being lazy. I am registered with my university as having a disability but that only grants me the ability to not get marked down on attendance ( and only for the teachers that agree to let me miss days ).

I have to work twice as hard and with half of the information when I miss class, and as a result my GPA takes hits and my spirit is weakened. I am highly intelligent, but my grades don’t always reflect that. Has being a person with chronic migraines hurt your life goals or dreams?
