Hi, I'm Wendee
Does it bug you when people say I have a migraine and they are still walking around and going on with their day? They really have no idea what a migraine is and all they really have is a regular headache. I have had migraines for years and when I get one that's it for the day or maybe two or three days if it's really bad. I see an aura that looks like really bright lights but when you close your eyes it's still there and I lose part or most of my vision. I have to lie down in a really dark room with no noise until it goes away which can take hours and sometimes I throw up too. I told someone I know that I had a migraine and couldn't leave the house to go out with them a couple of weeks ago and she said just take some advil and you'll be fine because I get migraines all the time and it works for me. I tried to tell her that she just has headaches and not migraines and she got all mad at me. Sorry for the rant but this just really bugs me and i know it must bother other migraine sufferers as well.
