Suck My Brain

Playing catch up again. I’ve been in migraine/cluster hell for the last 3 days. On top of a cold. While trying to work. Ever had to cough up a lung while trying to beat your head against the wall? I pray not. It’s horrible. I seriously contemplated banging a hammer against my left temple. Or the eye. But since I couldn’t see or move for that matter, I didn’t accomplish much at all.

Today, we broke down and got some supplements that use to help me. It’s been like 3/4 years since I had them. And now after the first dose this morning, I can walk without stabbing pain. I can breathe. The best thing is that I was able to read with my son tonight-the last 3 nights I was unable to even get up and say goodnight. Talk about mom guilt.

Why do I write this? Because some people have no concept of the pain we go through during these episodes. I thought maybe I was having a stroke. I have heard many people say to quit complaining, you’re being dramatic, it doesn’t hurt that bad, etc. Tell me the next time every step you attempt make you feel like someone is trying to pull your brain through your eye socket with a burning poker-I’ll make sure to tell you to “suck it up buttercup” and move on.

The judgement drives me bonkers-obviously. On that note, I’m so thankful for those that love me and helped me through this. Now my body wants to sleep-like really sleep. I’m hoping it does.

  3. What are the supplements? I go through these spells too. I try to explain it feels like and ice pick between the top of the left eyeball and the eye socket. But no one understands unless they get one. I get them right before the Epstein Barr kicks in, along with sore throat, and sneezing. That mess is just that, a mess. Just like migraines people don’t get the EBV either. Even the doctors best advice, there isn’t much by way of treatment because we don’t know much about it. When you feel bad don’t do anything, just rest. When you feel good do what you want. Yep, because I live a life of having the luxury to follow those instructions lol. I’d be happy to, if the rest of the world would get on board šŸ™‚

    Right after I had my first child I began having intense migraines with strange lights and sensitivity. The good news is they diminish as you age, and I rarely get them now. When I get one in my stage of life it is usually pain-free and I just have the odd symptoms. (flashing zig-zag lights, jaw numbness, arm numbness) It will affect my speech too, and yes, it almost feels like you are having a stroke. Anyone diminishing the pain you feel has never suffered through one.
