Lifetime Migrainer

I have suffed from migraines since I was 7 years old. I am now 67 and Still get them several times a month. It's so hard to work my life around these monsters ,but I have a loving and supportive husband who is always there with the pain, on the way to the e r !! I've tried probably every abortive med out there with no sucess and I always make sure I have some pain meds and anti nausea meds on hand. I've learned to live with them and have had to psych it out many times with friends and family when I'd rather be in bed. I have several triggers including certain foods, allergydays ,perfumes and some lotions and if I get dehydrated. So I just try to avoid those things. Most of the time time the headaches are a 7-8 ,but in the last year I've had 4 that were unbearable 9 or 10 emergency room ones. I wonder if they will ever go away. ...they seem to run my life sometimes. But I guess it could be worse. I could have some horrible disease and be dying!! So I guess it's not so bad! I've been praying alot more lately about these headaches and figure the Lord must have His reasons for allowing me to get them. I'm thankful for the rest of my life ....especially my husband and all my kids and 17 grandchildren. They all keep me going when I'm between headaches. Thank you for letting me post this. Melodie6
