My story

I started having headaches around the age of 9. They progressed to migraines by my early 20s and chronic migraines about 10 years ago. Am in pain 24/7 to some degree. Some migraines are functional, but most I am in bed.

2013 has been the worst for migraines for me. I miss work frequently due to migraines and used to cancel family plans, but do not make plans very far in advance any longer. I miss my family and my old life.
