I’ve been tired lately. Very tired. Exausted. And after a couple of triggers (ADHD medication + not eating + way too much coffee + working too hard, etc) I had the migraine episode of my life.
Besides photophobia, headache, nausea and vomiting (the “typical” for me) I smelled a strong odor of dirt, the colors “felt wrong” (too bright, too saturated) and I had a tinnitus-like episode of hearing a motor – the noise could be coming from the cars on the street, but the migraine made it feel like it was inside the room, inside my head.
I told my mom about the episode. She freaked out and, at first, imagined I had a psychotic episode, and later told me she thought I was using drugs and had a “bad trip”.
Can you guys say something I can show my mom, to make her see I just had a “normal” episode? I sent her a couple of articles on hallucinations with migraine and etc, but she doesn’t seem convinced 🙁
