but all my colleagues know what I suffer from as well as my boss and students. I work in a high school so kids pick on things relatively quickly!! I have found that my colleagues and boss are very supportive. My principal will replace me when I have an attack and walk out of class. My colleagues know that when I am pacing around the staff room it is best to leave me alone. And I always..and I mean always carry my imitrex injections with me. It get rids of the pain within 5 minutes. As for exhaustion, I get 6 sick day per school year. If it gets too bad, I'll take half a day, usually the morning and be at work in the afternoon. You'll have to learn to live with your illness and educate those around you. Best of luck!
