USA Migraine Awareness Month - June 2012

Post by Tee on Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:21 pm

Its Migraine Awareness Month in the USA and www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com. have set a challenge for all bloggers – one post each day on a given topic - I have been contributing to this...

Posts so far:

1st June - 'Your First for the First' - The bridge to my migraine journey….

From what I know now – I have had migraine since I was born….. and whilst I know I have lost memories from a very big Hemiplegic Migraine 6 years ago my very first classical migraine is still a very clear memory - it was simply walking across a school bridge - little did I know that this was to be the start of my long migraine journey….

2nd June - 'TEA FOR TWO' - So who would I invite to explain migraine to?….. a world leader? – they have stupid political games to play, a top journalist? – they are always chasing the latest story, A top neurologist? – well they should know already….

You know I would actually invite a chronic migrainer who has just started on their journey and who are lost in the world of pain, aura and information overload….. wishing that someone would hand them a pill and take it all away….

3rd June - Just shoot me now! hmmm the world of triggers……….

I suffer from many triggers and am fully aware that trigger management if key to migraine management………..

And if you think triggers are just chocolate, cheese and red wine – think again – Types of triggers

One of my biggest triggers and a serious bug bear of mine is ‘fragrance’………… the toxic unregulated fragrant chemicals we are exposed to every day…..

Comfort Measure: Frozen cherries! Sweet relief! I buy frozen cherries and keep them in the freezer at home and at work. I hold a frozen cherry against the roof of my mouth on the left side - the side of my pain. It lasts longer than an ice cube, is tastier, and helps temporarily with the pain. I assume it affects the nerve that causes the pain behind and around my eye.

Migraine Awareness Month #6: Name That Tune!

Today’s question was

“Choose a theme song for Migraine disease”

If I am honest songs of pain and sickness did not come to mind at first – but songs which embraces the love and support I get from my virtual migraine family…… in the early days without the support of these people on the fourm and facebook groups – I would have gone under time and time again….

Close family and friends are a must and their support can not be underestimated and I cannot thank my husband enough (he even won carer of the year in 2011) – BUT even with the best will in the world illness fatigue sets in after a few years of this day in day out and the stress (and boredom lol) begins to show on them too…. so having a support network that TOTALLY understands is a life saver…. and I thank you all xx
