I have just had four horrific days with a migraine and there is nothing worse after that than someone suggesting you had a bad headache or worse saying I suffer for my migraines when what they mean is they get headaches.
Seriously did your headache involve a million megawatt light show any band would be proud of? Did you feel so sick that you knew you had to get to the bathroom but knew the bathroom was so shiny that it would make everything worse so you really hope you wont be sick, then you have to be sick so you try and get to said bathroom but your legs wont hold you up properly so you end up lying there unable to get back up. Did your head hurt so much that you may actually have shot yourself if you had a gun, was the pressure so bad that you may also have drilled holes in your own head, if you could see to find the drill and co-ordinated to find your head. Where you sweating, shaking, trying not to cry because that only makes matters worse. Was the little voice saying hydrate, hydrate, you know this will get worse if you don't, while possibly hallucinating the spiders, still not sure if they were real. Did every part of your body hurt, every little bone feel like it had toothache, trying to stay calm and in control because the pain is unbearable and you need to keep it in check. Did your husband go to get you pills that are so bad you only get two at a time and have to fill out forms in triplicate for. Did you actually feel like you may die, then hope you would just to stop the pain....
If not you did not then chances are you didn't have a migraine and I may slap the next person who says they did (when they actually didn't) or the next person who calls it a bad headache.
