Sunday migraines…

I have been suffering from migraines since my teenage. They are annoying and sometimes completely debilitating. They can span between hours to days and I can do little to help myself. It is hell. Sometimes a certain food can trigger them. At times, they are random visitors. And for the last time, migraines are not mere headaches.

Over the years, I have tried every trick in the book to help relieve myself. Nothing I did cured it forever. Honestly, I still keep trying and hoping.

I have had to endure throbbing pain and have held my eye during meetings and presentations. Other times, I have just gone days without giving it much heed. But, there are days when I am a bit more annoyed than most.

Yesterday, I was watching a movie on Netflix and relaxing in my pajamas on a nice rainy Sunday. Just I as I was enjoying the last few hours of a day off, ta-dang-ta-dang! I had my least favourite guest come over. Migraine. It was one of does very strong ones that render me unable to do anything. I had to rush to my mum and ask her to help me make my bed so I could sleep. I took a pain bill and just jumped in bed. It was not how I wanted to end my weekend. I had no choice though.


Sometimes, I just wish people could understand or at least try to understand how it feels to suffer from migraines. So many times I have had my friends brush me off saying it is just a headache and I should stop making a big deal out of it. People at work have said it would get better if I just put my mind to work. Others have just ignored the fact and continued the conversations as I hold my pulsating eye.


In the end, it is just the way it is. Sometimes, I have one too many adventures and I turn out fine. Other times, a single glass of red wine makes me pound my own head. Nothing changes the fact that once in a while my peace is disturbed and somehow I manage to stay calm and reach for the nearest remedy.
