The Migraine Medication Decision Process

My decision making process for taking migraine medicine goes something like this.

I’m in a lousy low mood.

But it’s probably not a migraine.

Coffee hasn’t helped.

But it might not be a migraine.

My vision is blurred.

But it still might not be a migraine.

My head feels pressurised.

I don’t think it’s a migraine.

Computer screen is too bright.

I’m just tired, I doubt it’s a migraine.

Using black text on a dark grey background is still too bright.

It’s not a migraine!

I’m wearing sunglasses.

Migraine? No.

I’m hiding in a darkened room wearing sunglasses trying desperately to think or read.

No no no no no not a migraine.

It hurts.

I feel sick.

Coloured lights are floating across my vision.

I take Imigran.

Oh! It WAS a migraine!

The world is broken and I can't fix it because I am broken. I can, however, rant about it all and this is where I do that when I can get my thoughts together. Most of the time you'll find my words on Twitter rather than here though. I sometimes write for Where's The Benefit too.
