It turns out that for the past 30 years, these unexplained headaches and spasms I’ve been getting every now and then are actually migraines.
I’ve always known about migraines. I know people who have them. I just didn’t know it applied to me.
All this time, people dismissed my complaints as “Kevin being Kevin” and I had to learn to shut up and get on with it. I just accepted it as one of those things in life I’ll never understand. I imagined migraines must be bloody excruciating, though.
It’s strangely liberating, being able to give these headaches a name.
