does anyone else just get so sick of the pain, I am so sick of every day being the same round of pills and pain, I have a fantasy of just taking everything I have and have a pain free sleep.  I have totally run out of energy to fight this battle I drag myself to work each day generally crying with the effort then try to put on a happy face.  Its been 7 yrs and I still nothing works.

I know exactly how you feel Coco....
I often cry and wonder why this has to happen to me.  I find this site so helpful though, knowing that there are others out there that understand how we feel.  Its not easy to remain positive when you try everything and not much helps.
I find myself envying others and their normal lives....I have to live a reclusive live, avoiding all my many triggers as much as possible. Things that most people take for granted like a walk in the sunshine or an evening drinking with friends are impossible for me as sun and alcohol are strong triggers for me, as are loud crowded places ect ect.  I get so tired of having to explain to people why I can't do things and knowing they don't really understand.  I get very annoyed at people that moan about working.....or those that comment about me NOT working....I would so love to be able to work again....but migraine is very misunderstood and most think its 'just a bad headache' and can't understand why I can't just take a couple of paracetamol and be normal after a sleep....if only!
 
All we can do is hope that we eventually find a way to stop our pain on a more permanant basis....I personally am praying for my menopause as I know all the women in my family say their headaches/migraines stopped after that.....I live in hope!  I'm 38 so I have a while yet!

I really understand how you feel. I have tried so many migraine meds and treatments and nothing has worked for very long. I have found myself very down lately due to the chronic pain. It is so hard to always put on a happy face and do all the activities with the family to keep everyone happy. I have three daughters, two are grown and have babies and then I have a 10 year old that I stay very active with. We went for a pedicure today and it was fun! actually only had a mild migraine today and was able to have a mother and daughter day :)). Seems like I have more bad days then good lately, but am holding on to Hope!

Keep the Faith!

Mercyme :)

Hi Coco, I have been reading posts on here for an eternity. Your post triggered me to reply. I totally sympathise with you. There have been episodes where I have come so close to getting a kitchen knife to cut my leg so I can feel pain somewhere else. Sounds crazy I know.
 
I think every person on here with long term headache & migraine pain has felt what you are at some time.
 
I know I have, and I've cried at the thought of leaving my children and knowing that no one will take care of them, so I have to keep going. I chose to bring them into the world, they are my responsibility. The brave face is hard.
 
If only migraine was taken more seriously. I too as another poster said have envied the lives of people who bounce around happy without a headache.
 
I have daily headaches that range in pain, but migraines wreck me. I am totalled and useless and wish for the end. I get between 4-10 a month. The worst around cycle time, but stress is a killer for me. Most of the time all the medications just don't cut it and sleep is the only thing that ends the pain. That is, if I can get to sleep. I am cringing right now at the thought of a migraine, the headache I have is bad enough. I can't function at all with a migraine. I don't know how others do. I can't even see. My eyes water heavily, my nose blocks on my left side where the pain is, the throbbing pain is excruciating and I can hardly lift my head up. If I cry I make it worse. If I can evade vomitting I am doing well. I've pulled my hair out of my head, by accident as pulling on it takes a tiny bit of pressure off, just trying to get relief. I often get delirious. I have gone into shock.
 
Coco, I hear you. This forum is a lifesaver. Let's hope one day there will be an end to this pain. Meanwhile we all have each other :)

Youre scaring me Coco. How you could live with this pain everyday for so long is amazing. You are truly a super hero if its anything like my pain.
I hear my voice in your words already and ive just started down this journey.
I wish the best for you and all of us.

Thought I would chime in since nobody joins my thread! Lol. I hear ya, coco. I'm new to this headache thing. Never really got headaches until about 3 months ago. Now my day to day is miserable. Daytime, it's usually about a 5. Come nighttime, though, completely different! Usually stays between an 8-10. What drives me really crazy is the people that tell me I just need to talk about my problems because it's just stress related! Anyway, don't give up, please! We're all in this together. Stay strong and post often.
