oh, you'll be ok, come on don't be such a buzzkill, it's just a headache, take some tylenol (an m&m) & you'll be fine, you're wrecking everything, you HAVE to go.<br />
a migraine isn't anything you can put a band aid on & take off. first the head pain feels like either your head is either going to blow out, or spin off into flames. for me I get vertigo & nausea. last time I had a migraine i threw up for ages. it was so bad i think i saw a piece of my sixth birthday cake come up. my head feels like it's beating like a gong. and my left eye feels like there's a red hot poker stabbing me behind the eye. it's always on the left side.<br />
and no people don't understand that i can't do anything but lie in a cool dark room. these headaches are the bain of my existence.
I've had them since I was five. Can you imagine?
I used to suffer from those... A comment I heard was "just take an aspirin, that always helps when I have a headache..". Ummm... Migraines are not just headaches.... And annoying comment was: "Be quiet..." or "You are annoying other patients with your crying.." or "It can't hurt that much!" or "just close your eyes and lay in the dark..." Ummmm... I wish it were that easy. Probably a lot more if I really think about but I think I repressed the comments to prevent more trauma with flashbacks of that time.
Just the inhale act... makes me with cringe ...
It's just a headache, right?
amazing how many people believe migraines are just 'headaches'. Every one of them should have to experience 1 migraine in their life.
Take an asprin and get over it!<br />
Don't you think you're over reacting to a headache?<br />
Everyone gets headaches, but the rest of us just deal with it!<br />
Makes me want to bash their head with a brick while they're staked down facing into the noon day sun with death metal blaring in their ears and see if they can "get over it"
It's all in your head.
