Chronic Migraine, Community

The Current Silence

Between the excellent American Headache Society symposium, the American Headache and Migraine Association patient conference, and some exciting new discoveries about my health, I have a ton I want to share with you. Unfortunately, one of the complications of my current regimen is an extreme susceptibility to medication side effects. In particular, Wellbutrin (which is definitely helping my depression) is making me dizzy and the dizziness is exacerbated by looking at screens. It’s a short-term issue, but one that’s keeping me from writing about all these topics I’m so eager to tell you about.

I’ve received worried messages from readers, so I wanted to let you know that I haven’t been overtaken by horrendous migraines or depression. I’m actually in good spirits and feel like I’m on the verge of uncovering a new course of treatment, but getting to that point requires traversing a very bumpy road. I’ll be writing as much as I can as soon as I can.

I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season and doing as well as possible. xoxo

  1. Thank you, Kate and Lisa! You’re both very kind and I appreciate the love and support.

    Brad, as much as I like the idea of dictation software, I can’t write without typing. It’s like I don’t even think of the words before my fingers type them out! I can’t channel that same practice to my voice. I hope your nerve stimulator surgery went well.


  2. Hi,
    New to the site and just started looking around. I’ll be getting the test neurostim on the 26th. Hope it goes well

    As to your reaction to Wellbutrin. You could dictate voice to text very easily then just cut and paste the text to your blog. I could help you if you have any questions.

    Take care

  3. Glad to hear about new developments and exciting things. Handling migraines seems to be a journey, and each of our stories are unique. I really always appreciate you sharing yours. I am sending you love and strength for whatever you have ahead with your new treatments.

  4. Best of luck with new treatment ideas, Kerrie. Your site is so helpful, and has been so for many years now. I don’t know how you do it.
    Your research, combined with your personal struggles and topic ideas, make this a unique resource in so many ways.

    So take care of yourself now and whenever you need to, knowing how grateful so many of us are for your work.
    – Kate
