For a long time I’ve suffered from chronic migraines. Migraines are like headaches, except they make you want to die.
It’s a running joke between me and the Husband that my body just doesn’t want me to ever have a good time.
My longest migraine lasted just over three weeks. Since normal people can’t take three weeks off of work and head to the spa for a diamond peel microdermabrasion to feel better (I AM THE 99%!), I existed as a hazy shell of myself.
Having a migraine is like having the worst superpower ever. All your senses are heightened, but your brain gets confused with all the messages so it just turns everything into pain.
Chronic migraines also have the added effect of making me paranoid.
I still have a hard time believing though that my body would just randomly cause me horrible pain for no real reason, but maybe my body is just a dick like that.
