The Mother replied to Paula K's discussion 'Do you suffer from migraines too?'
"As an MD and a migraineur, I was in a really bad place for a while when the meds weren't working and each new drug was so much worse than the last. Trying to survive and take care of the children was a nightmare. Mine are gone now. Here's…"
