I am the sole sufferer with Migraines in my family, they have back issues or high BP or something else that they can pin-point...this is "all in my head" or more chronic that I can't take a pill for and make go away.
I think I am a bit sensitive at times (well who the heck isn't after days and weeks of excruciating pain???) but I FEEL like they look at me like I drag it out and complain more than necessary etc to get attention and so I don't have to do things and go places. But really, I would prefer not to spend my check at the pharmacy and to not be able to eat ANYTHING because of what it might do to me....and gain weight because of drugs, and then lose so much weight because of vomiting for days at a time...(TMI...sorry)
Now, I just smile and nod a lot. I have one girlfriend that I share this stuff with...and of course you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The first time I found a forum such as this, I literally cried to know I wasn't alone!!!
Not to be happy about this Ann, but if they want something to talk about....
I read in an article about Migrainous Strokes that "more people died from Migrainous stroke last year than were murdered by handguns" (27% of all strokes suffered by persons under the age of 45 are caused by Migraine)
