Don’t let anyone tell you what to do!!!!!

I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me. Where other’s have heard of different treatments or strange things that “may” cure migraines but they come with severe side effects. For example just 1 of the things, “Botox” scares the crap out of me, i’ve heard so many bad things and bad reviews.  I have certain people yelling at me (“ just do it, your migraines can’t be that bad then if you don’t want to do it”). This infuriates me, because they have absolutely no idea. I know how to manage this, but if I were to not be able to swallow or half my face be paralyzed then I don’t know how I would handle that. I’ve heard way to many bad reviews, and I’m not willing to risk that.

This is why I say unless you are going through it, nobody and I mean nobody has the right to judge what you do or your decisions. It’s your body and you decide what you d, no one else. There will be so many things and people out there saying “ Oh crazy thing took away my migraines”, but it all comes down to what you are willing to do, if your will to do anything that’s up to you. But every one is different what works for someone may not work for some else. 

Don’t get me wrong I’m sure there are a lot of things out there that work for people and I’m not judging anyone, but for me this subject has really hit hard recently. It just really hurts and bugs me when people think they know what’s best for you and know better than you when you’ve been living with it and suffering from this disease for 7 years. Trust me if I could take a magic pill I would, I think we all would.

pexels-photo-556663.jpegWhat it comes down to is you have to stand up for yourself, and no matter who it is, it’s your body and your choice. I won’t mutilate my body or do anything that I don’t want to do, if I want to do it i’ll do it. I’m not going to have someone pressure me into something when it comes to my healthcare. Some decisions are permanent and you can’t unchange them. Sorry if I’m ranting. It’s just something i’m very passionate about.

So in conclusion, stand up for yourself, and don’t let anyone tell you what to do whether it’s family, friends or your significant other. It’s your body and your choice. Investigate, research and make the decision for yourself. 

If you have any questions or just want to vent lol please comment below or contact me anytime. 

Thanks for reading and listening

I’m 33 years old and have been suffering from Chronic Migraines for 7 years. I have had migraines all my life, the first one was when I was in 4th grade, and as I got older they got worse. My migraines turned into chronic migraines 7 years ago and have become so debilitating that I can no longer work or have much of a social life. Bright lights and fluorescent lights are a major trigger, so I have to wear dark sunglasses most of the time. Because of that, I can no longer work, go shopping or be outside for a long time. Over the last 7 years I’ve learned how to live with this disease. Many people don’t understand the pain & sickness because Chronic Migraines are a silent disease. I get migraines 3-4 times a day, I loose my vision, and get very nauseous and confused. The only thing I can do when this happens is take my medications and sleep. I’ve been trying to get disability for 7 years now & had no luck. The problem with this illness is because you can’t see it like a broken arm or leg etc. Everyone thinks it’s not a big deal. Unless you have experienced this, many will never understand. To be honest, I wouldn’t want them to. This disease is a nightmare and wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this. I have suffered so long and am still suffering, that I have depression now. After 7 years I have learned a lot of information and tricks, and that’s what I want to share. My goal is to help others get through this day by day, because I understand what your going through. I understand the excruciating pain, the times where you don’t want to move your head because it feels like a cement block. I understand all the times people have passed you off because they think your exaggerating or being lazy. I understand all those times the doctors have just given up on you. I have had countless tears over the last 7 years. I have a great family and I try and get by with what I have and that’s what’s important. If I could I would start a charity or organization for people with Chronic Migraines so we wouldn’t have to rely on the government when we simply cannot work because the moment we start a job within 10 min we would have a migraine. I sympathize with all of you. I have been through it all. I’ve tried many treatments and medications and tried many natural ways to help. I’ve learned a lot over the last 7 years and I want to share and help others in need as much as I can. I want to share what has worked and what hasn’t, Tricks that make the headaches and migraines get better, and information on migraines and the different types of migraines. My mission is I want to help others that suffer like I do. If I help 1 person that will be enough for me. God Bless

  1. Hi there Lisa I was reading your article and now I remember those days when I was young back home In our country that most of us don’t aware what is migraine knowing that now that when I came to America and face my real demon of what is going on of what I always call headaches before was not just a type of headaches but indeed serious matter that I and of course my generation or my family needs know about. Thank you for the experience that your sharing also it help me and all of us who suffers. This is really a long battle but have faith always and be positive that all is well. God bless.

    1. Yes migraines are much worse than the normal headache they are a serious disease and battle. Hang in there. But I agree, we must always stay positive and have faith. I have God by my side every day, God is what gets me through every day

  2. My oldest daughter gets migraines at least once a month, but she does not suffer as you do. I’m so sorry you have had this disease for such a long time. I didn’t know people could have migraines so often. I do know it is impossible to work while having one.

    I’m sorry you couldn’t get disability for your sickness. I live in Canada and asked for disability for my mental illness, but they turned me down. It is also something they can’t see. My sister has Chronic Fatigue and Gulf War Syndrome. The military finally upped her payments from $100 per month to $700, which was a blessing.You can’t see her illness either, but she can barely get out of bed most days.

    1. I’m so sorry about your daughter, but yes getting these migraines so often makes it impossible to work with these migraines I’ve been trying to get social security for 7 years now, it’s ridiculous that they deny people like us, just because they can’t see it. I’m so Glad your sister got an increase in her payment, $ 100 is an insult. I hope your daughter and sister gets better soon.
