“I think I have been dealing with migraine as early as the age of 7. My first memory of migraine was being on holiday with my family in Switzerland, visiting a chocolate factory. The strong smell of chocolate triggered what I now know to be a migraine attack and I spent the rest of the holiday in a dark room.
I wasn’t diagnosed with migraine until my condition became chronic when I turned 15. From then I have suffered from head pain, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity and nausea all of which vary in severity every day.
Migraine made a lasting impression on my education. I relied on The Migraine Trust’s expertise, as I wanted to understand what support might be available to a person with chronic migraine. I was so grateful for their help and want to do my part and give something back to the charity.”
