I've turned into one of those people. Recently, I've been complaining - a lot. It's annoying to me and those around me. I say "Not now, I'm tired." and "Maybe later, when my head hurts less." Or the one I think I should use more frequently "After I have a nap." Whine, whine, whine.
If we have learnt anything over the last 19 months it is that my head hurts less when I get enough sleep and when I take my migraine med. We also know that stress and lack of sleep can make me
a banshee difficult to live with. Thankfully apart from the Easter Weekend I have been feeling quite a bit better than last year.

Yes, he does look like Dr Jesse. There may be a bit of a family resemblance there. Dr Chase is nice but he delivered some unwelcome news. The migraine med which I have used since mid last year is less available than it has been. Apparently it is highly addictive and the government doesn't want it to be so easy to get anymore. So, despite the Neurologist saying I have to take it and my preventative every day until I have had no pain for 4 to 5 weeks, I have gone from having enough for one a day to only having 8 tablets over 8 weeks.
Because of this, Dr Chase started me on another preventative medication to add to the one I've been on since mid last year. It can take up to 6 weeks to work and I get to take it morning and night. I've also seen Dr Jesse on the meantime and my other preventer medication dose was put up as well.
