THE FOLLOWING RANT MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH...
I get so irritated I could rip someones head off and throw it down some stairs when they say "I have a headache or even worse I have a migraine" well, not so much that I doubt that they have some type of head pain....but because I know that these people...(especially family members) have no type of head pain compared to the head pain that I have. I know that sounds horrible and selfish...but please when you have a "normal people" headache compared to the kinds of head pain that we have that at times literally makes you want to take your own life or bash your head into a wall....or when you have 9 doctors appointments in one week to try to find something, anything that will give you some kind of relief, or when you lose your car, your house, your entire life and relationships to a "headache" then feel free to use the term as loosely as you do.
If these people could only be in our position and feel the extent of this pain and discomfort. Would they turn every light in the house on? Would they slam the front door and turn the tv to the max volume? Would they wear the perfume and cook that strong food you have begged them not too? I doubt it, and after having a REAL migraine, the kind you and I have...for what, 7 days straight, they would look terrible too, and be emotional about everything and want to cry...and the medication would make them like that from day to day also....and maybe then they would understand a "dopamax moment" and not give you that "your an idiot" or "are you faking" look. I just wish someday they would truly understand how you and I feel...
I guess that might be a little much to ask.
P.S. Its past my bedtime, I have had a migraine for days and the meds haven't kicked in yet....I'm not generally this bitter???? Goodnight all!
