Well, as a chronic migraineur, I am getting ready to start a new job. My husband is worried because with my last job, I had intermittent FMLA for my migraines. But, that is part of why I still lost my job, and the people I worked with did not understand my migraines. I was told to give up yogurt, because one girl did that and her migraines went away. Believe me, I have given up just about everything and I still have migraines.
I have been to a neurologist, who out me on preventative medicines, only to tell me that I was over medicated and suffered from ataxia. Now, I am not on preventative meds and only on fioricet, which doesn't really help.
I am 51, and been through menopause and people have said that my migraines should be gone. I am so tired of people telling me what should be happening, I have had no relief of any symptoms at any stage of my life. And what is sad, my daughter has inherited my migraines. I would give anything to take them away.
I will tackle this job and deal with migraines without letting people know. I have to work and I am blessed to have found another job. By the way, I am an RN...we are not so nice to each other.
