  1. I'm so glad that you posted this here. There are so many aspects of migraine that affect our lives in so many ways. Sharing them with a community of people who get it can be helpful and remind us that we're not in this alone.

    I'm sure others in our community will chime in with their firsthand experiences. In the meantime, I wanted to share this article in hopes that it might help you.
