My amazing family!

I have had migraines since I was 18 and I am 57.My migraines are from a variety of reasons injury, light and stress.I have a very difficult time managing my headaches. I have tried most meds and procedures and now I am scheduled for surgery.

My children have grown up through the horrific situation. They knew as toddlers to be quiet for mommy it was incredible. All three learned as they grew about my migraines. They are still my strong support system. I can call any of them anytime and they give me their undivided attention. This experience has taught them to respect people at face value. Also they are incredibly compassionate. I am very proud of them.

The other person I depend the most on is my hubby. He is amazing. He can tell the level of my headache by just looking at me. And he knows just what to do. He brings me drinks, makes sure I eat, adjusts the temperature, gets my meds holds me when I have a meltdown and most importantly knows when to be quiet! I couldn't ask for any more and all this is in less than 5 years we've been together. I am truly blessed~♡
