It's so defeating. The inescapable, intense pain. The nausea. The exhaustion. The pulsing. The sensitivities. The damn chronic migraines - I just hate this!
I have things to do but instead I'm fighting the migraine monster. There is almost nothing left of ME. The triptans allow me to regain a very tiny piece of myself for a few hours here and there but the migraines are all consuming.
Yeah, yeah, eventually it will pass and I will get some of me back. But I don't know how far off relief is. All I know is that it won't last long before another migraine consumes me.
Even after 11 years of living with chronic migraines the pain still frightens and overwhelms me. I feel weary today.
