I am 17 years old. I live in a small town and I guess I have to live up to high expectations of my family. I babysit my 6 year old cousin 5 days a week, 4, if I'm lucky. I run errands for my dad and do house work for him because he works all the time and is never home (my parents are divorced). I work for my grandmother at her bowling center as a cashier and cook. I also run errands for my mom most days. A lot of my friends say that I do too much for my family, but I always thought that that's how things were supposed to be. Lately, however, I've been pretty depressed and just "down in the dumps," I guess you could say. I'm really sick of getting migraines every day and these pills usually make them worse before they make them better. They you add the stress of running around all day and having a 6 year old constantly asking for food or toys or cartoons. I don't get proper sleep because along with the daily bullsh*t, I try to find time to see my boyfriend and that is usually around 10 or 11pm. Also keep in mind I get up at 6am to babysit... I don't know. It's really hard to fit my life into a small box on a computer screen. So if someone has any suggestions of medications I could suggest to my doctor or some stress relievers that won't take up my day, that would be awesome. Let me know. If you've made it this far, thank you for reading! I appreciate all the help I can get.
p.s. I am seeing a neurologist. Specializes in Migraines. Thanks, again.
