Migraine Awareness – June 2013 Headache Disorders & Migraine Blog Carnival

Welcome to the June, 2013, Headache Disorders and Migraine Blog Carnival!

A blog carnival is a collection of blog entries, usually around a central theme. The idea is for participants to share their work and enjoy other blogs as well. In observance of Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, bloggers were asked to share their favorite blog post from the first part of the Awareness Month Blog Challenge – either one of their posts or a favorite from someone else’s blog.

There were some wonderfully creative entries this month. Sadly, the Migraine community shared a loss last weekend. A vibrant, wonderful 22-year-old young woman took her life because she’d lost hope of her chronic Migraines improving. So, in addition to the Blog Challenge posts in this month’s carnival, there are some posts about hope, suicide, and recognizing that Migraine can kill.

These are all great blogs that you won’t want to miss. Please check out this month’s carnival,

    Teri, I have mostly lost control of my life because of the migraines. Unlike the young woman who took her own life at 22, I have no such desire. I simply want my pre-migraine life back.

    Migraine rules. I have lost my friends due to my cancelling getting together, I have lost work due to being violently sick with migraine, I have lost an enormous part of the joy in life as a result of being sick so frequently.

    I have a great husband who is very understanding, but my world has gotten very small because I cannot plan nor attend any events, celebrations, get toghethers, meetup, exercise classes, etc etc. My life is migraine, migraine and more migraine.

    I have gone through all the treatments, medications, surgical procedures with at least 12 doctors. NOTHING MAKES IT BETTER. It is not a religious thing, but I choose life. I have survived TWO cancers and would be in excellent health were it not for the migraines.
