Told I'd Outgrow It

Last updated: May 2023

I started getting migraines in my early 30s during my period. This was ok at first because I could tell in advance if I was going to miss work.

It got to where they didn't let up and I had them all the time. Fast forward to the point where I'm no longer working due to migraine and am on disability.

I'm now 61 and still having daily migraines. The neurologist told me it was hormonal and that I would grow out of it. Well, I didn't, and now the main trigger is the barometric pressure and I can't control the weather so I suffer severely and daily.

On the days when I can function, I do light duties and on days when it's bad, I sleep which is my only relief. To my fellow migraine sufferers, I hope that someday you find relief and I am grateful for your stories because it helps me know that I'm not the only one that goes through this.
