A day in the life of a migraineur
A beautiful sunny day. I am pain free so I relish the light.
I feel the sun and the mild spring air caressing me.
I'm so happy, I can almost forget about my problems.
Then, it starts. My vision blurs and i am blind now.
I sit down, tears pour out of me as i wait the aura out.
I stagger along to the nearest bus stop, once again, I am forced to succumb.
I'm heading home.
I am a few minutes away from home now, will it wait to attack me till then? Suddenly, the familiar onslaught of pain on the right side of my head.
Immediately I am nauseous and light is once again my enemy.
Dizzy and in pain, I make it to the front door.
Blinds are pulled and I crawl into bed, eyes shut tight.
Pain makes me exhausted and I fall into tortured sleep.
Another day ruined, another day in the life of a migraineur.
