Does anyone have trouble leading a "normal" life? Trying to work full-time, take care of two children and be a wife (and have a little of a social life on the side). By Tuesday I am dragging. By Wednesday I need to lay down as soon as I get home from work to function at night. It goes worse from there. I have issues with my eyes and cant' drive. As things go downhill my eyes play tricks on me even more and I see cars from next lanes coming at us so bad that I jump on my seat. I am too stressed out. Irritability also rises as week progresses. So does inability to concentrate and understand others. Eyes get more tired, sounds bother me more and so does light. I am doing much better now, couldn't work for an entire year. One day of the weekend I sleep all day. The next day I sometimes I feel recovered, but often not completely. I felt so out of sorts yesterday I couldn't make it to work (still need to do the work though but haven't been able to). Had to take a Xanax today because I was so anxious and cranky. Took a three hour nap and still feel exhausted. Crappy cycle starts again Monday. Does this sound like the experience of others with basilar migraines, or should I tell my doctor we still need to work pretty hard on finding a better med combo? Thanks.
