an outpouring of support
It's been fewer than twelve hours since I posted a link to this blog on my myspace & facebook pages. I wanted friends & family who were interested to be able to look at this blog that's been somewhat of a secret in my life for two years now.
Imagine my delight to get such an outpouring of support even before the clock struck noon! My aunt, a couple friends in Athens, a good friend in Europe, and some old high school buddies all sent messages to let me know they had read some (or most, in my aunt's case!) of the blog and sympathized with me. Apparently I hadn't let on how much trouble migraine disease causes me on a day-to-day basis. My tricks to try to look like I'm living a totally normal life seem to be going over well! Ha.
Thanks again for reading. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I think blogging is really helpful and therapeutic for those that want to write or read about migraines and chronic pain. I hear tell of a Teri Robert-run yahoo group for migraineur bloggers--I'll be sure to update you when I learn more.
Have you shared your migraine story with us yet?
