​There is this phenomenon, this neurological disorder called Chronic Migraines. A huge percent of the world population experiences episodic migraines, only about 1-2% of these people become chronic. It’s an unlucky card to draw. They don’t really understand or even research WHY this happens.

Chronic is considered 15 or more migraines a month for at least three months. 

My mother had migraines too. And they improved tremendously when she went thru menopause. Unfortunately, the scientific data does not show the same trend once you become a chronic migraineur. Usually there is little to no change once you hit menopause. 

I was diagnosed with chronic migraines in 2007/8 when I lived in Arizona (one of the most stable weather places in the world). I’ve had little to no change since moving to Texas. Although I am careful – very careful – to treat my environmental allergies every day so they don’t exacerbate my migraines. 

I did not fully comprehend the life sentence of “chronic” for very many years. It’s a shitty card to draw. And I believe we should be living in a world where not one person has a single migraine ever.
