There were these spots floating around in my vision that I couldn't see through. Then my head started hurting so badly that I began crying. Crying just made it worse. It was a summer day, and the light coming through the window in my bedroom hurt my eyes, so I closed the curtains and buried my face in my pillow. I couldn't stay that way long because I needed to vomit. My father brought a large bowl from the kitchen so I didn't have to get up. Vividly, I remember him wiping my face with a cold cloth and gently rubbing my back until I fell asleep. My mother had these "headaches," too. At the age of six, I didn't really understand them, but I knew my mother would sometimes be in bed with her headaches for days. My parents have told me that the pediatrician said I was "high-strung" and had Migraines like my mother. All they could do was try to give me aspirin and hope I'd go to sleep...
