I bet I’m not the only one who’s sad that Migraine & Headache Awareness Month is almost over. This month has allowed our community to shine with blog posts, photo challenges, lots of great memes and awareness facts to share, and the conference this weekend in LA, with all its new research. MHAM inspired me to become more active again with my blog and on Twitter, to make new connections within our community and rekindle old ones. I entered contests and commiserated, comforted and complained. Photos of me were used in an awareness banner by advocate and author JP Summers and I created plenty of my own images as well.
For “Community” I chose a picture of me with family, a picture of a few of my friends, and a piece of a photo of the advocates at this year’s Headache On The Hill along with a piece about the community at Migraine.com. I can’t think of a better representation of the people important to me as I fight my illness every day. Well, I guess I can think of a couple others, which is amazing really. There is also my Facebook community and my small town itself. And my readers at WordPress.
I am grateful to you all! I hope we can continue to bond as a community of migraine warriors, and shine on, always.
