Chronic Migraine, Coping

I’m Tired of This

I’m tired of having a headache. The thought crept up yesterday and I couldn’t keep it at bay. Usually I just don’t think about it; it’s just the way my life is. Every single second of every single day, year after year. It sucks.

My pain has been elevated since Friday. It’s about a 6, so it’s bad enough to affect my thinking but isn’t terrible. I’m not laid up and can still get things done. I’m afraid it’s a dam waiting to burst.

How do those of us with chronic daily headache do it? I guess we just do. I suppose it’s the same philosophy as the wisdom of William Churchill (brought to you by Honest Tea), “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

  1. Headaches can be so overwhelming. I thought that my CFS/FMS was bad until the headaches started. And when I realize the pain may never go away–or, God forbid, get worse…..yeah, it’s tiring.

    The only thing I can do is try not to think ahead farther than today, otherwise I panic.

    I’m sorry you’re going through this (((Gentle hugs))))

  2. I can so relate. I actually think it far too often, but the only thing I can do is wait for it to pass for a little while. Not much else we can do!

  3. I’ve been the same the past few days. WHY??? And we do just continue on. We pop pills and do what we can when we can – and very rarely say a word to anyone about it – but I am SO glad to hear someone else complain. I really am. Thank you so much! We’re normal people that deal with an abnormal condition that not too many people understand. So we cry on each other’s shoulders and carry on.

    I’m always “here” if anyone needs to cry!
