My Migraine Story

I'm so tired of living like this. I'm 22 years old and I'm always sick .. migraines all the time .. this is affecting my life and my surroundings . My work, my family and my friends. i just don't know what to do anymore i have no control over my life or my health i feel like a prisoner in my own body.

Its hard because i feel like I've let down everyone and Iv especially feel like I've let myself down. i haven't had a family doctor in 2 years and I've been on a waiting list this whole time . i have to spend hours in the emergency room ( which is torture when you have a migraine ) only for the doctors to tell me EVERY TIME. that they cant do anything because i need a family doctor to do follow ups. this is causing me infinite stress and even depression .

i don't know what to do anymore i feel like no one believes me , no one cares and no one wants to help , im tired of my life being migraine =stress. stress=migraines . failure , disappointment, and pain . i know people go through things that are much worst and hard and im not trying to make anyone feel bad for me . im just tired , exhausted and drained. im trying to push foward but i just cant seem to accomplish that. this has been going on since i was 13 :(
