Honestly, this should not have surprised me at all.

I am once again being failed by my pain management clinic, who for the second month in a row sees fit to drop my Fioricet usage from once per day if needed to five days in a month “because you could be getting medication overuse headache” even though that has repeatedly been ruled out in my medical files over the course of the several years that we have failed to do this song and dance. So I guess the alternative to that is me being in pain for extended periods of time, wishing that migraine patients (I have the diagnosis, you’ve seen the inside of my head through MRI scan because that was how you found out I have a brain tumor) were taken as seriously as patients who present to the medical profession for other pain-related reasons.
