In 2008, after spending months in never-ending pain, Sarah Hackley was diagnosed with intractable migraine with aura. Two years and countless symptoms, medications, and doctors’ visits later, she managed to reclaim part of her life when “intractable” changed to “chronic”. A decade of chronic migraine later, Sarah counts herself blessed whenever the good days outnumber the bad.
She is the author of “Finding Happiness with Migraines: A Do It Yourself Guide”, “Preparing to Fly: Financial Freedom from Domestic Abuse.” and the poetry chapbook "The Things We Lose." She also is an editor, patient advocate, writing and wellness coach, and poet. Learn more and connect with Sarah at www.sarahhackley.com.
