My name is Ashley. I live in Ohio currently (looking for a job somewhere else)!! I have had migraines for 2 years. (My stupid senior thesis is to blame) I think for my migraines. I have seen every neurologist that my insurance covers and have had very little success!
I love my neurologist because I can get into see him whenever I needed too. I'm his toughest patient. I've taken a zillion meds and have not found a preventive that works. I almost always have some sort of headache but when I get a migraine they usually stick around for 10-15 days. So pain meds are my best friends because all I can do is try and make myself a little more comfortable.
The weather is my number one trigger especially rain!! I'm thinking about moving to Death Valley to escape the rain in Ohio.
The number one man in my life right now is my black lab Jack. He takes very good care of me when I am sick with a headache. If spent the night on the bathroom floor Jack stays with me but he seems to know when I get really really sick because then he goes and gets someone for me. He is my very own Lassie!
