Divorced My Migraines
Hi Migraine Savvy,
I just wanted to tell you my 'news' regarding my migraines. Three years ago I got a divorce from my husband and low and behold the migraines just stopped.
Now I don't really know if it was because he was just horrible to me when I did have a migraine, and the stress that caused. He was lovely a good majority of the time but when I had a migraine he would come in my nice dark safe room, and swing open the curtains and yell "get out of bed, come on now, you've had enough time there" and then I would expect "come feed the kids" or something.
We have three small boys. Anyway .... I had them for so many years, over ten for sure. They were horrible and nothing I took helped except laying down in a dark room and sleeping until it went away.
Thank God for sleep, that's all I can say.
Now I am 53, and I have been migraine free for 3 years. It might be menopause ... but I am really not sure. I think I divorced my migraines.
Wish that were a cure for everyone!!!!! I would not trade being migraine free now for anything. I can play with my kids, read a book, sit in the sun, and do so many things I just could not for all those years. Oh yes, and wear perfume. I had a glass of red wine last night .... no migraine.
I got my life back. At least that's what it feels like.
