Migraines Make Things Difficult

Migraines make things difficult~ 

Most people who don’t have migraines, usually don’t understand and even many people with mild migraines or tension headaches don’t understand what a severe chronic migraine can do to your life.  Destroying friendships, ruining your chance at a job, simply physically showing up at school, looking at the board in a classroom even when sitting in the front row, forcing people to leave military jobs due to a medical condition, losing a job you’ve had for 20 years…

All that simply due to an acute chronic onset migraine, that simply arrived out of nowhere.

Not all migraines are like, some can last 30 minutes to an hourh, totan entire day and others can last weeks or even an entire month. There are those that last a year.

Doing the whole check in thing four different groups on Amino is a very tedious task when am Migraine approaches… it’s hard enough to just turn off my alarm clock on my cell phone when I have a migraine. Sometimes I literally just let it keep going off because looking at the bright light it’s so much worse than feeling the buzzing and hearing the beep beep beep beep of my phone alarm. I don’t know if other people feel this way about their migraines pretty much taking over their life like that making something so simple become so hard.
