As you can see by my profile, I have suffered migraines since my teens. They got more and more often as I got older. They last 3-5 days and sometimes 2 weeks. Then, January 2008 - 18 months ago, I got one that hasn't ended yet. It ebbs and flows sometimes so bad I can't see or hear, most times with all my meds, I can function - not like I used to but I can function. My job has been good to me over it - not all employers are. I went to the Michigan Head Pain and Neurological Institute last summer and learned so much and when I left my pain was at a decent, livable level. But life back at home increased it back - now I go day to day trying to get along and enjoy life and not let the migraine get the best of me.
