life-long suffering

I have a visceral migraine headache today that really limited my daily functions. It last from the moment I woke up until now despite taking medication. What a suffering!

Which reminds me, I have to call an acupuncturist for an appointment to fix this life-long suffering. I think this kind of chronic migraine headache is also hereditary because my mom has it and she had it worse in her 40s, right before she came to menopause.

I am not looking forward to menopause. My mom went coo-coo for a few years going through it while enduring life challenges in America in our early years. She even shaved her head a few times and we had no concept or neither we understood what she went through. We just thought that we didn’t do well or meet her expectations and she was always angry. Nevertheless, she got better upon finding a job as a kitchen assistant at Japanese restaurant.

  1. i’m sorry to hear about your headaches. migraines are awful, awful, awful.

    i hope your acupuncture apt. goes well, and you feel relief from this suffering!

    1. thank you, it’s something that I have to deal with. Hopefully when I get the chance to get treatment with eastern medicine/approach, it might go away.

    1. sorry to hear that you also have what I have. I think it is more common among women. I find drinking ginger and turmeric tea helps a lot, but sometimes my migraine gets to its worse, nothing could help.
