Living with the pain.

When I was 11 I started constantly having stomach pains, throwing up almost every day. I went to see my doctor and he immediately diagnosed me with Abdominal Migraines. He put me on a bucket load of drugs and I have been taking them every day for over a year now.

Classmates at school didn't think it was that bad, they didn't understand what I go through, how much medication I have to take. They told me that it was 'only a bit of stomach ache'. But no.
Since I moved schools, my friends understand that a migraine attack makes a broken bone look like a trip to the circus. I am just so jealous of how many people get to run around in Phys Ed, at how many get to do science experiments. It's not as easy as you think.
