I simply said I would pull over so my husband could finish his injection of insulin because the Ding of his seatbelt being off was a horrible trigger to my already pounding MIGRAINE that had been going on for days. I had agreed to drive to Chicago to give my son some relief because he suffers the migraines as well. Not only did I get the Sun light trigger, but I got the seatbelt dinging, then my husband's yelling, and finally his accusations of not caring. I read that triggers are not our fault, but I get accusations from people that it's my fault I have the migraines and I shouldn't be saying what causes them.
I'm on a journey to identify the cause and effect. I want the pain to stop. I don't want to hurt anyone in the process, but I speak the truth, I always have and unfortunately I've hurt people along the way, especially those that I love dearly. I ask their forgiveness and I forgive them, but I must continue on my journey even without their forgiveness. Hoping for a cure.

I will continue to be patient and kind, not envious, nor boastful, not proud, honorable, serving others, not easily angered, and keeping no record of wrongs. I pray that others will do the same.
I'm thankful I have this forum to vent and get the ideas out about topics the community can discuss and see if others have similar difficulties and how they handled them.
Well, the good news is that I've determined that my primary migraine trigger is fluorescent lighting. The bad news is that it's everywhere and difficult to avoid, unless I stay home and hide under a blanket all day. Every job I've had has had this type of lighting in the office. I've been looking into a product called TheraSpecs. They're glasses with special lenses that reduce migraine triggering...
The 2nd cgrp drug was just approved by the FDA on Sept. 14, called AJOVY. This one you can get either monthly or quarterly.I believe there will be a 3rd one out later this year, and a 4th one out some time next year. From my understanding, they all work just a little bit differently, so if one doesn't work for you, maybe one of the others will work better.I believe that Teva (the maker of this...
