Hi everyone! If you have read any of my other posts, you will see how amazing and wonderful it was for me to finally find this forum!!! I have lost so much in my life because of my migraines, it is really comforting to know that I am not the only one...I was losing my mind for awhile there. Most of my friends have run for the hills. They are tired of me always having to change plans, postpone things or simply cancel out. My very close friends, since childhood, have never left my side! There is a lot of distance between us, but they are wonderful! My husband has lost a lot of his friends as well, they don't understand why I am this way and why he feels he needs to be here with me. I try and convince him to go out, see people, but I only succeed in that about 1/2 the time. The other times, even though I need to be left alone with a migraines, he just wants to be in the house in case I need anything. I don't think I could have ever wished for a more wonderful husband!
As for my family, they try. I know that my parents are at the end of their ropes with all of this, it is killing them to see me in pain all the time. My brother and sister have just sort of distanced themselves, only talking to them maybe once every other week, if that much.
I have taken up a lot of crafts, things I can do here at home when I am lonely...which is too often. I am an avid fan of the food network...and you know things are really sad when I can almost recite the TV guide without even looking at it
I just want to say a sincere thank you to all of you on this site. It is comforting knowing that there are people I can talk to about all of this, it has really done a tremendous thing for my self-esteem and "saneness."
Frog, if you ever need to speak to another spouse, let me know and I will see if I can get my husband to participate...I think it would be a good outlet for him!
Thank you for the support and encouragement....Remember we are not alone in this
