25 years!!!!!

that how long I remember it being that migraines have been a part of my life. Today I woke up with one, and although I took 2 Excedrin migraine pills, I don't feel a bit better. And top that off with nausea, and well, my day is a total write off. I honestly can't even put a number to the amount of days having a migraine has taken away from me. Days go by and I lay in wait of it to go away, just a little reprieve, praying that it will only be there for one day, not linger for sometimes as long as a week. My brain feels like it's being dragged along concrete, the shear pain causing me to only half open my eyes sometimes due to the brightness of the world around me. And the nausea, sometimes that is worse then the pain in my brain....that's the combo that usually does me in completly. I just can not function when I feel like this, I want to disappear, escape my own body and never know this pain again. The missed days of work, of family life, of just being able to get out of bed and function....I have given so much time to this horrible affliction, that I am done! If I could get back all the lost time I am sure it would add up to at least a year or more. So please please head....just stop hurting!!!!!
