Migraine Awareness Week 2013

Today marks the start of Migraine Awareness Week (MAW). Every year The Migraine Trust promotes Migraine Awareness Week (1-7 September 2013) to raise general awareness of migraine as a serious public health issue.

As you may know, I have suffered from migraine attacks for around 15 or so years with the latter two years as a chronic migraine sufferer. I occasionally blog about my migraine experiences in the hope it will help others. The Migraine Trust are campaigning to encourage understanding that migraine is ‘more than just a headache’.

I have found that my online migraine friends have offered a great deal of support, advice and understanding. In particular, Victoria of the Migraine Monologues is an advocate for migraine sufferers and I always learn something new from her posts.

So, whether you are a migraine sufferer or not, I urge you to take a look at the Migraine Monologues blog during MAW 2013 to learn something about the condition. Victoria will be posting each day throughout the week.

So far in 2013, I have lost 70 days to migraine. Knowing that others understand what I am going through is a great comfort.

Toodles!
