So my new treatment device has arrived…
Not only is it good for playing innuendo bingo, it’s also a highly developed new technology that’s recently come on the migraine scene.
(You can find out more at gammacore.com if you’re interested)
I feel very privileged to be able to try it, given that it has no real side effects and a relatively high success rate (almost 50% of people saw some reduction in their migraines, which is a good rate for a migraine treatment)
I look a bit silly using it – you have to hold it against your neck and it makes your face look funny (no change there then!) which makes me want to laugh, but it makes my laugh sound proper weird, which makes people try to make me laugh all the more.
But I don’t mind. As one friend said, “you just have to own it”. And looking silly is a small price to pay if it actually works – we should know within a few months.
We’re trying not to get too excited that this might be THE ONE but at the same time we’re very keen to give it a go.
Sooner or later something has to work.
So here’s to trying new things and holding on to hope…
