My Personal Migraine
I began having chronic daily migraines right after what should have been the happiest time of my life, the birth of my son. Within 3 weeks of having him I went from episodic migraines to daily migraines. I have tried everything out
there with no relief, even Botox. I get nauseous, dizzy, visual problems, problems talking and walking, lack of coordination, memory problems, depression, occasionally I will have trouble with smells and sounds but not as
often. That was almost 7 years ago.
you without killing you and ruins your family life by you not being able to take part in your life because you can’t raise your head off your pillow without excruciating pain. And getting little to no help from the people who are suppose to be there for you and love you.
someone like me they may make me wait a year or more to do so. I feel completely stigmatized by this. People don’t know so they just assume it is just a headache. Just a headache would be great if that were all it was only one day, but everyday of every month is not just a headache. Migraines are even more stigmatized than depression now. Which makes those of us who have chronic daily migraines feel like we have no where to turn, no support, and sometimes no hope. I have read some of the other stories and can relate totally. However, the truth of the matter is you do feel so alone when you are lying in bed not able to function.
