Will It Ever Stop

I started getting migraines in my 20’s I’m now going to be 52. I thought when I was younger if I drove my car really fast into the telephone pole would I die because that’s what I wanted…….

then I had my sons and 1 day as I lay on my bed just wanting to die from the migrain my little boy comes in with a bowl of water and a wash cloth he was 4 he starts rubbing my head which how can I tell him he’s making it worse he asked me “are you going to die” it broke my heart I am the only parent.

It got to the point my doctor would hand me the drug book and tell me to pick something it would work for awhile and then stop … then I started blacking out in my 30’s from the migraines I took Imitrex which worked for 6 months before I had a allergic reaction to it … from the time my kids were little untill their tweens they had to stay in the house when I had my migraines…now their in their 20’s my little boy which will be 26 this week has migraines and now they drive me to the hospital to get Morphine shots does it stop the pain I don’t know all I know is it knocks me out for 2 days and when I come to my migrain is gone.

I’ve been to so many doctors they’d say when you hit menopause they’d stop no they did not…my mother also had migraines … if I would of realized my kids would have them I would of choose not to have kids to keep them from the pain were no one can stop them …
