Rant and Rave

Better understanding of the phases typically involved in a migraine attack seem pretty useless to me, at this point... Prodrome... Aura... Headache... Postdrome... I have symptoms of all of these phases all of the time. I don't know where one migraine ends and another begins!

This is (and has been) taking a huge toll on me, as well as my husband. I am truly blessed to have a wonderful husband. He doesn't understand any of what I'm experiencing (he doesn't even get headaches, much less migraines); and, yet, he's there by my side to take care of me. It breaks my heart that this disease affects my moods (we're talking big-time irritability) and weight (a lot of weight loss, which I can't afford to lose), and causes him to worry about me. But I'm so grateful that he loves me, and that he tries to help me in any way that he can. I thank God every day for my husband.
