November 26 ~ Today I am thankful for prescription medicine. I woke up this morning with a migraine 🙁
I have suffered with migraines since I was twelve years old. Sadly, I wasn’t accurately diagnosed until after high school. For years, they insisted my headaches were because I needed glasses, but every time I wore the glasses, they actually gave me a headache. I missed many days of school, staying home suffering with horrible, pounding pain and nausea.
Migraine medication has come a long way since I was first diagnosed in the 80’s. My first prescription relieved the pain, but pretty much knocked me out. I couldn’t work because I couldn’t stay awake. I am blessed these days because I currently take Imitrex for my migraines. It doesn’t make me drowsy, so I’m not totally incapacitated for the whole day.
