If you’re unsure of what a migraine is here is a quick run-down to get you up to speed. Firstly, there are different types of migraine. Not everyone will have the same type of pain or require the same medication to cope. I take medication on a daily basis as a preventative measure that doesn’t always work. I get attacks on a weekly basis, most weeks I suffer through a migraine attack 3 or 4 times. Most people wouldn’t know this because I have been very good at hiding my pain from others. I do this because I constantly feel like I am bringing other people down or just making life that much more difficult for my loved ones by always being “sick”. I’ve been ridiculed by managers who thought I was “putting it on” to get a day off. Yes, of course, your’e so right! I really enjoy having to pull over to the side of the road because the pain is so bad it makes me throw up. I enjoy throwing up all over myself. Or I’m “slack” because I took the last day of the week off due to not being able to see properly out of one eye. Of course, I enjoy being partially blind on Thursdays. So, you probably get the picture. Migraine is horrible and I really feel for anyone who knows how debilitating this disorder can be.
All I ask from anyone that reads this is try to maybe, I dunno, come up with a different excuse to take a sickie because if you were a real migraine sufferer, you wouldn’t be lying about it just to dodge a day of work.
