Want to Rip My Head Off

ever since being young i have been plagued with headaches.  i'm sure i got it from my mom since she gets them all the time too.  but each passing year they seem to just get worse or come on more often and stay longer.  ususally i'll get a headache that will last for approximatly 3 or 4 days.  i've had times where i have one for a whole week on and off.  i was taking over the counter stuff so much that i was worried of becoming dependent on them.  so i bear as much as i can before i take anything.  i don't have medical insurance so i can't get a prescription for anything stronger.  my boyfriend gets ibuprofen 800 mg, and that will work sometimes.  my tolerance is pretty high so for a really really bad headache i'll take up to 2 of them.  its very debilitating and makes me miss out on a lot and i feel bad because i get so cranky and my daughter needs my attention, but when i have a headache, i am totally out of commission.  all i can do is lay down in the dark with a cold rag on my head.  i hate it.
