Thank you to Ellen and Teri, who put together the Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge - 30 posts in 30 days - to help make migraines more visible!
The NHF shares some different resources to increase awareness - including a series of NHF hosted chat webinars (you can find out more information and register at this link), which they will continue to host. July's webinars will be from 6:30-7:30pm (CDT), and the topics are:
- July 10 (Tuesday) - Ask the Pharmacist
- July 26 (Thursday) - Management of Your Headache in the Emergency Department
This post was written as part of the Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge (MAMBC), which is initiated by www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com and the National Migraine Awareness Month is initiated by the National Headache Foundation (NHF).
Total awesomeness - Thank you for helping!!! We'll be posting monthly prompts beginning in July. I hope you'll join us again :DReplyDelete
Thanks, Ellen. I'm looking forward to the monthly prompts. I'll definitely stay active with "helping make Migraine visible."Delete
Hi, Jamie! I promised to update you & so I shall. ;) After numerous (unprofitable) trips to the ER, my migraine finally broke after about 52 days. I'm not sure if it broke on its own, or due to the fact that I was put on Elavil (nightly dose) as a prophylactic measure to treat "way too many monthly migraines," according to the ER neuro. I agreed with her, of course. ;) I see a new neuro in Sept, but for now, I just deal with mild to moderate daily headaches. WHAT A HUGE IMPROVEMENT!!! I wanted to fill you in on the details, hoping it might help out anyone else suffering with an unbreakable migraine. I swear I thought I was going to lose my mind! God bless you, sweet girl! How you blog so well in your condition is a testament to your courage, faith, and dedication. Be blessed!ReplyDelete
Layla, thank you so much for updating me and sharing your experience with others. I'm so glad that the Elavil has helped you! Thank you, also, for your kind words. I really needed to hear it. Blessings. <3Delete
