Working and Migraines

Posted on March 28, 2018

"I suffer daily with dizziness and vertigo. I had to stop work in 2014 as I couldn't cope with the illness. My memory became poor and I physically couldn't move. Most days I get by now but still suffer the repercussions of living with migraines. Is there anyone who has had to stop work, if so how do you cope financially? Not sure how I can make things better for my partner as he is only bringing in a wage." -A member on MyMigraineTeam
