I always get them, vision blurred,
darkest room, blinds drawn, so absurd!

Family knows to tread lightly,
I'm wound up oh so tightly!

A wet cloth upon my head,
Imitrex is by the bed!

For days I lie there, sometimes asleep,
sometimes so frustrated, I simply weep!

I hate these migraines with a passion,
For more than a decade I have had them!

    Sena, your description is so vivid! I hope you will check with Dane Ann (Soup member). She has herbal remedies that work for so many things. I pray you find some relief! Love, Carolyn

    I'm very sorry about this burden you carry, Sena. I can't imagine dealing with this constantly. Well-written Couplet. Love, Audrey
