I struggled for years, and finally found something that works for me: Topamax as a preventative, although it has an appetite-suppressant side-effect at the start which was a challenge; and Maxalt for the odd time I do get one, which is a life-saver. That, and an ice pack, and I’m usually good in half an hour.

We don’t mess around. Have you seen our cigarette packages? ;)
I was wearing a dress with a bolero jacket when a man who had a bit too much to drink full-on grabbed my ass as I left his table with his order. When I turned around—everyone had seen it—he muttered something like, “I was trying to touch your jacket.” He left me a $20 tip, which in 1982 or thereabouts, was not too shabby.
