I’ve been looking at my computer screen for nearly an hour trying to express my feelings toward a man who gave me my life back.
This is my story:
At age 14 I started to have minor migraines, and as each year passed, the pain got worse and worse to the point that by age 26 the pain had taken over my life.
The way I see it, every year I am given 12 months to live, to enjoy spending time with my daughter, my family and loved ones, birthday celebrations, holidays, dinners and get-togethers, and just those quiet times, helping out with homework or simply talking and sharing. However, every year for the past 9 years I found myself stuck in a darkened bedroom, blinds drawn, unable to see, hear, or talk to anyone, just trying to cope, trying to manage the pain. My baby girl didn’t have the mommy she deserved – and she didn’t understand. Yes, I’m given 12 months each year, but my life was being taken away. At best I might have 7 or 8 months for each 12 that I lived.
I tolerated the pain the best I could, but eventually I would call 911 or wind up in the emergency room 2 to 3 times annually. I would be given pain killers and narcotics, then go home and hug my daughter, waiting for the migraine pain that would surely return and the cycle to start over. 7 or 8 months of life . . . every 12 months.
July 2nd, 2013, a man walked into my PC repair shop needing to have his laptop fixed. He looked into my eyes and, with amazing insight and clarity, asked me a simple question: “do you suffer from migraines?” I paused and wanted to laugh but the pain was too great. I collapsed to the ground.
As I regained my feet, the man introduced himself as Dr. Faro Owiesy, with an understanding and sympathetic smile. He reassured me, saying, “Don’t worry, I can take care of you” and handed me his business card. This would be the day I began to get my life back.
I closed up shop, and in half an hour was at his clinic. During the medical exam, Dr. Owiesy explained his migraine treatment procedure, guaranteeing that my pain would go away for good. I again wanted to laugh but the pain held me back.
I agreed to proceed with the first session that same day, and four days later I did my second session, July 6th 2013.
I went home and held onto my pain medication in one hand and the phone in my other, expecting to make the inevitable 911 call when the migraine pain would return and become unbearable. Time passed by and I fell asleep.
On July 8th, 2013, I woke up pain free. I sat up and pondered, “what did that man do to me?” Finding no answer, I simply prayed the pain would not return.
Today is September 2nd, 2013 and I have my life back. I’m pain free. The migraines have not returned. I live day-to-day now without the migraine pain that had stolen my life. My daughter is enjoying her mom! I have family and loved ones again in my life. I enjoy simple pleasures like watching TV longer than just a few minutes!
I pray that anyone suffering from the debilitating pain of migraines, will find Dr. Owiesy. He will change your life. I am living proof, pain free, medication free, and looking forward to the next 12 months of life.
Thank you Dr. Owiesy for giving me my life back.
