Well, the biggest thing is that worrying about money all the time makes my brain harder to use, but my brain is the only tool I have. It is so difficult to concentrate now that it’s a major effort to accomplish the smallest things, like going to the bank or folding laundry. So yes, those […]

All of a sudden, my migraines have gotten much more frequent (six in the past month or so) and two of them occurred in the middle of the night. This morning, I woke up, dropped something on the floor, bent to pick it up and there it was: another migraine aura. Shit. And even though […]
