One step forward, two steps back with having an illness

@WHO says Migraine is the 8th most disabling disease in the world.
I have learned that I take steps forward and back with my migraines. It is completely disabling and has been a marathon in my life. Here’s just one story of how I battle.

    I can’t stand it when I read that people only suffer with migraines a few times a year. I have suffered every day for the last 43 years. You might have migraines, but you have no idea what other people like myself go through every day. I wouldn’t even call myself a migraine sufferer if you only have them a few times a year.
