    Dear cloran14,

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. I am so sorry to hear that you are living with constant pain. Please know we know just how difficult this must be to contend with. Managing migraine takes such a tremendous physical and emotional toll and know you are not alone in these feelings. I commend you for openly sharing the dark and difficult thoughts that are also experienced. I would like to stress if you are EVER in an immediate crisis or considering harming yourself, DO NOT hesitate to contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 or you can go online https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ and they have a live chat feature. I hope you take a bit of comfort knowing that you have an entire community behind you and understands what you are going through! Many of our contributor’s have discussed this topic as well. You might appreciate this article – https://migraine.com/blog/migraine-and-suicidal-thoughts-one-migraineurs-story/. Don’t give up hope for better days ahead! There are many treatment combinations that can be considered (over 100 in fact). Here is an overview of treatment options and I’d also like to mention the new CGRP drugs for migraine prevention that will hopefully hit the market in the near future.
