As somebody who has endured chronic migraine basically her whole life, Sarah knows the physical and emotional struggles of having a primary headache disorder. Whether it was having certain doctors question the chronicity of her attacks or passing out on the bathroom floor as a kid after an especially painful episode, life with migraine was a challenge to say the least.
In addition, her sensitivity to light was particularly frustrating. It was always listed as a symptom of her migraine attacks since childhood and, by her own admission, only seemed to get worse as time went on.
Surprisingly, Sarah's doctors did not provide much guidance in helping treat photophobia, among other disappointing outcomes with care. In combination with moving out of state and away from her family for employment, the situation inspired her to take matters into her own hands and ultimately develop her own treatment plan. And at the core of it: TheraSpecs glasses. They ultimately became the answer to what was one of her biggest triggers.
She was even pleasantly surprised that her employer approved her accommodations request to wear TheraSpecs during the work day. This gave her confidence in the opportunity to extend the relief she had been experiencing elsewhere to the workplace. She even looks forward to getting back into gaming and other favorite activities that photophobia had previously inhibited.
We’re proud of you, Sarah, for taking control of your health and keeping our glasses at the center of your migraine toolkit!
