One word, baby: Botox. It took a year of injections for it to finally work (actually, maybe more like 9 months), and I am so glad I didn’t give up. For most migraineurs who try Botox, it makes a big difference the first time, but not me.
But now? Life is so different! I have a lightness in my step that I didn’t have before, because I was slogging along, in pain and worn out.
I have high hopes for lots of accomplishments this school year, now that I am not being dragged down by migraines.
