Feel Judged By some

I had my MRI the other day and I am waiting for the results. But what's bothering me is I have some people here in this little town giving me eye rolls and judgemental look because I am seeing a doctor about my migraines. They act like I'm being a baby because I just can't take it anymore and am seeking help. I had natural childbirth at only 24 weeks and that pain was a breeze compared to what I've been experiencing these last couple years. Did anyone else here have people looking at them this way because you sought help for these terrible headaches?

I am so sorry you are dealing with that! That really makes me angry when people act like that. I bet if the same people actually suffered with migraines they would be a lot more compassionate. I would try to just shake it off and ignore that reaction when it happends and I really hope the neurologist is able to help you with your headaches!

Thank you. I don't have an appointment date yet but they will call me back when they do. I just want to start getting a handle on all of this.
