Migraines Get Worse the Older I get

I've suffered from migraines my entire life. I was first diagnosed when I was 6 months old, so my family was very supportive. They initially thought they may stop during puberty but only got worse and have continued to get worse.

Now that I'm in my 50s, they've only gotten worse, 15+ a month. Some family is still supportive but others aren't. It's hard to be the one always cancelling plans, as it is for the one having those plans cancelled on..and acting like everything is fine when it's not when you do venture out.
