Through the advice of my family and doctor, I started to write about my pains and trials.
I have had migraines off and on since I was 13 years old. They would last about 3 to 4 days and taper off. By my mid 30's, they seem too had disappeared and I was very grateful for that.
I was enjoying life to the fullest. I was playing tennis with a good friend of mine on a steady basis and riding my bike regularly.
By the time I was 40, I was getting migraines again but only about 1 or 2 a year. I notice when I was exerting, I was getting headaches but I didn't think nothing of it.
In 2013, I was playing tennis more than ever and I had just bought a brand new $600 bike. My wife and I had just came back from a nice cruise and girls had just moved off to college. My son had recently started modeling for S&K modeling and I had a great job while furthering my education into a new field. Life was grand.
That would all change without a moment notice.
I started having headaches in August every day. I did the usual medications to try to stop them but nothing was working. They were just dull headaches. I remember thinking it was a start of a migraine but the migraine never came. Then in late September, the migraine started and it did not stop. I went to the emergency room only to get stronger meds. When that didn't work, I went again. They did all the normal test and I was cleared on anything life threatening. I was just having migraines that would not stop.
October the 8th is when I stopped working because I could not function anymore. I stayed in my room in darkness for months going back and forth to doctors. During that time, I was diagnose as having situational depression. I was embarrass and my head was throbbing. I had stopped living.
Here is a story about my fight with pain and depression. I hope I don't offend anyone. I may see things wrong but this is how I see it at the moment. Hope you enjoy and hope maybe it helps someone. And if you have any help for me, I am all ears.
This has a Christian theme to it so if you do not believe what I believe, please read anyway. Hopefully there is something you can take out of it and maybe there is something you can help me with.
