I've been putting up with migraines for most of a decade. I've probably had a million dollars worth of tests and hardly a month goes by that I don't get a letter from my insurance company asking if either if I've been in an auto accident or accident at work, if I have some other insurance, if I'm on disability, anything so they don't have to pay! And they fight giving me prescriptions for more than 9 imitrex a month. It's not unusual for me to spend 2-3 hours a month arguing to get my prescriptions filled. Now I have migraines almost every day and they're bad. The medication helps, but then it just puts me to sleep for a good part of the day. Lately when I have a headache I've been getting real sad and thinking of death. I'm OK when I don't have a headache, but when under the influence I'm pretty miserable. I tried to find a migraine-oriented chat on the internet and the sites that claimed to have one didn't actually have working chats.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
