I’ve come to a point in my life where I’ve almost given up on going to neurologists for this. I had this great one before, but we changed our insurance to Kaiser and seriously, I’ve been to the head of neurology there and they are STUMPED on my case. I guess because I’ve taken so many meds in the past, there’s nothing else I can do.
I’ve had migraines since 7 years old, and they’ve turned chronic at 17 and now that I’m 19, they still come every day. Thank god for our insurance because before, Treximet was 100-200$, but now it’s only 25$. So that’s a relief. And last year I was in the ER almost every week because my medication wasn’t working anymore.
It’s been such a struggle for me to deal with school, in the past and the present.
I’m in the Special Services at my college because before I was getting penalized for my absences, but I literally can’t do anything when I have one. Even if I catch it, I’m still super groggy and depressed before and after.
I’m even afraid of getting a job because no one is going to want to hire someone who’s going to miss a lot of work.
It’s so difficult. I’m done with this. My old neurologist said they’d go away when I hit puberty.
WELL, puberty is over and done with. Now it’s menopause when they’ll end.
It sucks to be in constant pain and at a young age, because it pulls me down so much and makes it so hard to function.
One day there better be a cure.
