A Familiar Story: You’re Not Alone

"Marjorie Jennens felt guilty as she swallowed the tablet – six of them cost $288 of hard-won family money – and sometimes she just vomited them up. But, she told herself, anything was better than the migraines that crippled her most days of the week."

This is an excerpt from Migraine: The Mother of All Headaches, from Stuff, a New Zealand news website. Many of the points touched upon are painfully familiar to headache sufferers. The article resonates. Deeply.

The New Zealand Migraine Support Group, which is mentioned in the article, has some terrific resources on its website.
