I know I can do this here and be understood. Don't get me wrong I love my husband more and more everyday. How ever. I see a neurologist for chronic migraines, I take daily medication plus medication when I get a breakthrough migraine. (anyone that suffers from migraines understands this) Migraine's are not your average headache.
My DH occasionally gets a migraine, he starts off taking the Tylenol migraine, sighs, moans, I ask him if he has taken my prescription med. (he always says no, but could I put a cold wash cloth over his eyes) So I do. then he gets up to lay on the couch. (no tv) he thinks its darker in there? or just laying different on the couch may help. He takes more Tylenol, more sighing, moaning, I finally make him take one of my prescpt. meds. Then I make coffee, take the dogs out. feed them. Get his wash cloth cold again, make the bed, get him some toast, and a cup of coffee, and he is feeling better.
NOW, when I have a migraine, I get several texts though out the day, "sorry to bother you but can you do..." or, "can you look through the box of ...." IF he is home. He is hammering, sawing, using the leaf blower, AND then says "do you know what I did with the ...?? " Or I can't find the such and such in the shed, I know u have a "headache"? I think I need another set of eyes"... (never mind I'm on the verge of hugging the toilet) OH< What are we having for supper, did you have anything planned? ...NO MIGRAINE.. trying to lay down here... oh yeah right. is your head any better?
MEN! They will never get it!
