Migraine Journey Wednesday (Vol.24 - Vitji)
My Migraine History
I’m 15 and I’m from Namibia. I started getting migraines 2 years ago. It all started when I was in SA, I just got unusual dizziness. Back then, I probably thought that it was due to the weather, that my head was probably not used to it.
However, I got back to Namibia and the dizziness just wouldn’t go away and still remained. After 2 months, my migraine “started”. We visited the doctor a lot at that time and he finally referred me to a neurologist.
I have been lucky and the people around me have been really understanding towards my migraines. Migraines have affected my life so much that I basically can’t do anything when I have them. As for treatments, I’ve been to the hospital for them but they really haven’t been really effective for me. All they do is just make me fat :(
When things get really unbearable, I really feel like I’m suffering so much and there are times where I think I just can’t take it anymore. I just try to sleep it off but sometimes it just makes it worse. I’m praying things get better for me and everyone else in the future.
