Difficult to read some of these as yes, very over the top. Most of us I’m sure have managed to manage these brutal suicidal thought evoking episodes and attacks. The first cycle is always the most difficult to explain to others, and deal with ourselves. I’m not a migraine sufferer but still find myself quietly comparing to others that these are worse. Slippery slope when comparing pain. No other pain in my 47 years led to me smashing my head against the wall rhythmically, rocking back and forth in tears holding my head or not touching my head ouch, writing wills while not able to give a shit about anything or anyone else I held dear. 5.5 years in since my first bout with episodics and still can’t explain these properly. If you’re new here, please stick around. You came to the right place. Don’t give up.
