Young and struggling
Last updated: May 2015
My name is Payton. I am 17 years old and need help. What are some ways people make it through a day with migraines. I am so young and getting ready to head off the college in the fall and my parents told me that I can't go if we do not figure out my migraines. I just got put on meds to try and help. I am afraid that I will be on meds for this my entire life. Does anyone have advice? I am having a really hard time dealing with it and hearing "it's just a headache" "work through it it will go away" "you are just being dramatic" and "it can't be that bad. Stop whining. I get bad headaches too and you don't see me complaining"
In the past year, has insurance made it difficult to get your migraine treatment?
