I Love My Husband, But...

I love my husband, but he just asked me, "What's the difference between a headache and a migraine?"


We've been married ten years, and he still doesn't understand. I had a migraine today and I mentioned that it was starting to get a little better, and he said, "You still have a headache?" and I corrected him - "migraine" - and that's when he asked what the difference was.

I guess moral of the story is, nobody's going to truly understand what you're going through unless they go through it themselves. So instead of getting angry at him, I'm going to drop it. Because anger would just make my head hurt worse.

Random update: I've been using a mouth guard at night for years, and recently I came across something saying that mouth guards could have BPA. I'm not sure if mine has it or not, but it got me thinking, why am I still wearing it every night if it hasn't helped my headaches and migraines? So I stopped using it and haven't noticed any difference other than jaw pain for one day. I might have TMJ, so if my jaw starts popping a lot I'll start using it again. For now though, it's nice to have one less thing to do each night!
