Fallon explains one of the biggest relationship stressors headache sufferers endure: Someone who has never had a severe headache or migraine simply cannot understand your suffering, no matter how clear your description and apparent your agony is.
“As I said ages ago, those who’ve never experienced a migraine, just don’t get it. Never have. Never will. That fact isn’t likely to change, so I no longer waste my breath trying to explain. But, I’m not above begging and pleading when the need arises. And I think the need has definitely risen to gargantuan proportions. . . .”
“I’ve begun to believe it’s a mental block in the minds of non-migraine sufferers. They hear the word and something just… blanks.”
