Migraine Awareness Month #19: “The Match Game.”
Describe your perfect doctor to treat your Migraines.
i have to say, i am very happy. with my regular GP (general practitioner) which helps, but my neurologist… he doesn’t “believe” in fibromyalgia and he doesn’t seem to “believe” in chronic migraine either, and always writes me up as drug dependent which really doesn’t help me. he “believes” that triptans only “take the edge off” migraines and that i should simply stop taking them.*hollow laugh*
as you might imagine, although he is clearly a clever bloke, and probably BRILLIANT to have on your side, he isn’t all that helpful to me. with my chronic migraine and comorbid fibro.
having followed migraine.com for the past several months i am better informed than i have ever been. my perfect doctor would be at least as up to date as i am, and ideally would be interested in really talking through the finer points of what can be done in my situation. ironically, for someone who has rather damned me with his letters to my GP he is rather a drug pusher and i have had a couple of very strange forays into epileptic and psych drugs which i could have done, not necessarily without completely, but with a LOT more supervision whilst taking. could have saved me quite a lot of difficulty that way.

turns out i couldn’t get blue glasses i fancied due to apparently having too much of a big fat hulking head. they were too small for me, and my cunning plan of trying the teenage version was obvs no better. so i headed for the men’s section and i got the classic eric morcambe glasses instead.
i can’t show you them on yet, i have to wait til next wednesday to pick them up. in the meantime i wanted to show you morcambe’s classic glasses wiggle but i can’t find it anywhere on youtube, so here’s my fave morcambe and wise sketch instead.
and finally, GUESS WHAT?
i have finally got around to hooching together a facebook page, and you can LIKE it over there on the side bar. WOOO HOOOO !!!!! i am just like a real person!
