I am a chronic migraine sufferer.
Migraine and headache sufferers, like many people with “invisible” illnesses, are widely misunderstood.
Such misunderstanding can come from partners, family, friends, colleagues, bosses, health practitioners and many, many other people. It can come from ignorance, love, fear, exhaustion or just generally being an arsehole. Wherever it comes from, it hurts, and the illness is already hurting enough.
I hope that through this blog I can provide support to other sufferers. I also hope to provide information and advice to people who love, care for, work with, employ, treat or otherwise encounter people who have frequent and debilitating headaches and migraines.
Please note that when I talk about medications or treatment options I am simply relaying my experience and am in no way qualified to provide medical advice. Always, ALWAYS see a doctor, and if you aren’t getting results…see another one!
