Quite the Pair

Last updated: August 2022

My husband and I make quite the pair. We both had a difficult upbringing, robbed of our childhoods. We both are very funny people with the same sense of humor. Even though we are four years apart in age (he's older), we grew up watching the same shows (for the most part, I was censored and couldn't watch "violent" things like Power Rangers).

Another thing we have in common, we both suffer from migraines. For my husband, it's due to a traumatic injury that happened to him in the womb.

A lifetime sufferer

He has suffered all his 39 years with migraines and I can't even imagine what that must have been like. Many times he missed school due to migraines and, now, often misses out on work. Especially with his current job in a food production plant. It's super loud in there even though they have protective hearing earmuff thing-ys. They don't cancel out all sound, especially the hums.

Our triggers and treatment

My hubby and I are both sensitive to weather changes and will get a migraine if there is a dramatic change in temperature in a 24-hour period. My hubby is also the same as I, nothing really helps his migraines except medical marijuana (legal here in Canada), and even then, for him, not as much.

Never alone

I am glad I am not alone in this misery. I just thought of a Jack Johnson song "Better Together." Our song is "Lost Together'" by Blue Rodeo. My hubby may not be able to relate to all the various pains and symptoms I have due to my various diseases but at least he can relate perfectly to migraines.husband and I as bitmoji
