i am horribly vain. but hey, i am also a nice, caring person, so it all works out well in the end.

i hope you get to discuss it with your doctor soon, because it sounds like it might be a really interesting option for you!

i have never heard of botox used to treat chronic migraine. i will have to check up on that; my mom suffers from terrible migraines 50% of the time or more.

when it comes to things like medicine which might have some serious long term consequenses (or might be totally safe, we don't really know that, but let's keep our fingers crossed!), i find that there are two things that need to be thought through:
1) get as much information as you can, talk to your doctor, don't be afraid to ask questions or get a second opinion
2) is this something that will possibly increase your life quality enough that you want to do it with the risks involved?
things like this is a deeply personal decision, and if it feels right for you, i say go ahead and do it.

my friend who was recently diagnosed with ADD and now gets ritalin + some other ADD drug + antidepressants (which she's taken for years) and i talked about this stuff a few days ago, and she basically said "the drugs make my life so much better. i feel better. i don't feel depressed, i feel like i can finally start my life. even if i knew these drugs would take 20 years off my life, i'd still take them. i'd rather be happy and not live as long, than i'd be having these issues and turn 100". i can totally relate to that; i smoke because i know it helps me keep my eating disorder at bay - do i wish i could just quit? hell yes. but for now, the cigarettes help me manage something a lot worse than smoking, so even if they will shorten my life (and they probably will), this is the right thing for me to do right now.

life is a filled with decision making and choices you have to make. it's up to you to figure out what you feel is the right thing to do.

i hope that no matter what, you manage to get rid of the cramps. it sounds really horrible!

For what it's worth, if I could change my body without pain or cost, I'd be unrecognizable. Your reasons for being interested in botox are totally legit. I have wrinkle lines on my forehead at 24, they don't bother me much, I wear my bangs. But I could do without DD boobs, one bigger than the other, and a whole lot of other things. So chat with your doctor, it is certainly worth investigating if it is important to you. Let us know how it goes!
