Sadly, you never know what a migraine will become
until it’s too late.
Some migraines last for hours… while others can last for days!
Sometimes they are just an intense headache… and other times you can be racked with nausea and light-sensitivity.
You feel the beginning stages of your migraine coming on - and immediately experience that overwhelming sense of dread.
You survey your surroundings. Is there a quiet place you can go lie down? Can you get home safely before the occasional discomfort starts? Do you need to cancel or rearrange plans before it’s too late? The panic sets in, only making things worse.
Luckily, you manage to get home in time. The kids are running around, asking about dinner… the TV is blaring… the dog is jumping up wanting attention… you’re struggling to cope. You try in vain to settle the kids. You sadly explain that once again you need some ‘quiet time.’
You slowly make your way up to your room. You dim the lights and grab a cold cloth. Maybe you start your diffuser or insert your earplugs.
FINALLY, you’re able to lie down.
Only for the real occasional discomfort to start.
