What does a migraine feel like?

What does a (my) migraine feel like?

Take an ice pick and stick it in your eye…

…wait, I’m not finished…

Develop nausea so severe that the slightest movement of your head makes you want to barf up your lunch…

…wait, I’m not finished…

Multiply sound levels 20 times so that the low level conversations of your friends vibrate the walls..

…wait, I’m not finished…

While staring at a bright light poke needles in your eyes (next to the ice pick)…

…wait, I’m not finished…

Become mentally confused so that you can’t concentrate on a task or make simple decisions…

…wait, I’m not finished…

Become physicaly exhausted so that you can barely draw the shades, crawl into a bed, and pray that you pass out…

I’m finished, for now…
