Hi everyone!
It's been a while since i've been on and posted anything let alone read anything.  My heartfelt care and concern to all of you riding the migraine rollercoaster.
I've been in my own little person dungeon of dispair!  It seems like everything is my trigger now.  I just can't keep up with what my mind and body are doing.
I've been through a couple med changes over the past few months.  And obviously i'll be changing again soon.  I was amitriptyline...worked for a bit.  Then i changed to propanolol...that just made me exhausted way too much.  And instead of getting the week long migraine's.  I was getting the ones that last a couple hours to a couple of minutes but several a day.  I think my doc is switching me to topomax next.  What the heck!!!  Might as well.
I haven't been able to keep a journal, because i'm always in either so much pain or so much aura's I can't think straight to do it.  Well, okay, that might be a bit of a cop out.  I'm just sick of trying...what's the point.
Anyway, you are not forgotten.  I will be around more often now.  I'm finished sulking on my own.
Thanks for listening to me rant  I"m sure my husband has had enough.  Luckily I have a hubby that doesn't complain much.  Only looks at me like I'm a poor old soul.

Aww Vicky,

Sorry you have had such a rough time lately! You should rant here a little more, that is what we are all here for!! I know what you mean about not having the where-with-all to keep up the diary's, but think of it as a necessary evil!! lol - trouble is they are the only thing that is going to give the Docs any insight into our individual condition!!!

Glad you have got a hubby that is there for you - it is hard to understand what we go through from just watching!! - you cannot see the pain, we react to someone who has had an insect bite that's gone bad or obvious bruising from a fall by saying something like 'oh that looks bad' - thus portraying to the other person that we understand what has happened to them and it affirms them too!! But you cannot physically see our pain and discomfort!!! - so people do not cope as well!

When I saw the Headache specialist a couple of weeks ago, I took a photo of me in an attack and drew on the photo in bright pink highlighter pen where the pain was - he was so pleased with it he wants to use it for teaching purposes!!!

Take care Vicky, hope you feel better very soon,
