Living in limbo

Well I am 46 years old. Been living with migraines most of my life. Since I was a teenager. But just got over the latest one a week ago. It was with me this time for over a month. Until one day a customer I was waiting on gave me some information on a medicine and a Dr. The meds have helped big time.

But where do you start when living in life not ever getting a minute of peace from the skull crushing pain. Doctors look at you like your are crazy at times, or just fed up with the run around of meds that aren’t working. Dragging your limp body up just so you won’t get fired from your job.

I am scared to death of when the next one will come or if a simple headache is going to be the next big one again. This sucks so bad.
