Just harpoon me through the head…




If I don’t have access to some Migraleve, a cozy bed, a dark room and a wet flannel when I get a migraine then I will very quickly turn in to a gibbering mess. I can’t talk to you because every word I utter shoots immense pain through my skull and I’ll probably throw up on you. So please forgive me if I seem rude, I’m just trying to save you.

Here are a few of the wonderful symptoms you may experience when you have a migraine…


  • Feeling like your brain is trying to escape.
  • Vomitting.
  • Constant nausea.
  • Loss of coherent speech.
  • Paralysis.
  • Tunnel vision.
  • Blurred vision – spots, stars, loss of sight.
  • Over-whelming exhaustion.
  • Head hotter than the sun.
  • Feeling freezing cold everywhere else.


Not forgetting the following day when you are utterly exhausted and are so ravenous you could eat your entire family.

If you’re one of those lucky b*****ds that don’t get migraines then you have absolutely no idea how terribly debilitating they are. Also, please, please for the love of all that is holy and for the sake of your own life, don’t ever tell us to just ‘take a couple of paracetamols’ because I will have no choice but to curse you and your loved ones to Hades for all eternity.

I have had the pleasure of encountering ice pick migraines, hemiplegic migraines, with aura and without aura. I’ve had a good share of the wonderful types of migraine that are available.

They are evil, evil things and can be triggered in many different ways;

  • Lack of sleep
  • Stress
  • Dehydration
  • Nuts
  • Cheese
  • Chocolate
  • Alcohol
  • Hormones

Mine are usually hormone related. I end up with a migraine that slowly develops over a couple of days and then tries to kill me.

Please, if someone is suffering with a migraine find them some drugs immediately and lead them to a dark room.

Thank you x
