I am a "stay at home" Mom for many years now because of health problems myself. I dont think many employers want to hear "I cant come in today-I have a migraine" or "I cant come in
today-my back hurts too much" over and over and over. I was in a bad accident-my SUV flipped over 7 times -really made my back a mess-more medicine that I take. I would be the most unreliable employee someone could ever hire!!!
I have two kids, 9 and 13, and I cannot tell you how many mornings they would find me sitting on the floor by the toilet and have to get themselves ready & down to the bus stop with nothing more than a "I CANT TALK TO YOU-MY HEAD HURTS TOO MUCH TO TALK-HAVE A GOOD-DAY-BYE!!!" from their Mom!! Did you ever get them like that where it hurts too much to even move your lips!!! That was mostly before my injections-Now I keep them right in my nightstand so if I wake up at 4 or 5 a.m. feeling that God Awful Feeling I just have to reach over for the shot and not even have to walk. It's so nice to wake back up an hour later with it gone, sometimes I start singing or get giggly from pure relief!!!
I wish it was more affordable so having them in the house was not such an issue.
My husband has always known I'd prefer he walk in the door with one of my Imitrex prescriptions filled than with a dozen roses, chocolate, you name it....... LOL
Hope you have a Headache Free Day, Week, Month, (I wont push it)
