It’s been a long road for me and migraine headaches. They started when I was just four and have continued for over 40 years. It’s always been the same migraine, searing into my right eye. I get nauseous and vomit.
For a long time I had a lot of trouble maintaining my life and my migraines. The migraines were mean and I was mad I was getting them the time…through school, while working. For years I just lived with these migraines. I didn’t have appropriate medication and a plan. It makes things a little easier to deal with.
These days I have accepted my migraines. I have a wonderful NP who has helped show me these headaches are not my fault. We have a plan in place for when the pain comes. I know I’m going to get them…there is no magic pill.
