Migraine Savvy Newsletter #27 It's Migraine Awareness Month
June 19, 2014
It's Migraine Awareness Month
The Continuing Pursuit for Migraine Elimination and Pain Reduction
June is migraine awareness month. What are you doing to raise awareness in your community? "Not much," you say, "too sick at home to do much of anything." Well lucky for us we have some people out there advocating for us, on our behalf, so we can spend more time becoming more aware of our own migraine triggers and leap into taking preventative action.
Let's do what we can do, and that can just simply start at home. After we learn what works to help manage our pain levels, we can share and educate those around us.
Holly's Helpful Tips for Migraine AwarenessTip #1: Timing is everything.
Know your body so well, that the most subtle clue of sensation will alert you to the fact that another migraine is on its way.
Let us know what your
early warning signal
is in our Facebook comments box.
Share Your Migraine Stories
Remember that your contribution will help others too! We are not in this alone, even though it feels like it most of the time. Our stories and input can help each other. For example, I heard about Naramig from a Shiatsu patient of mine, not my doctor or any of the specialists I had seen! Two years after triptans came on the market. Two years of needless suffering.
This is a safe place to share your challenges and tell your story to people who truly understand what you are going through. Feel free to share your art to inspire us all in our time of need and find solutions with new treatment ideas specific to migraine disease. Get some professional health advice from others that walk this path. Just click on the links underlined above if you would like to contribute.
We Love to Hear From You
if you have anything you want to share with us this month in our Facebook comments box.
In the Spotlight this Month
I don't know where I would be without my ice packs. It's the second thing I grab after my early warning symptoms tell me to take my medications. I can spend up to 10 days straight in migraine, and the ice just soothes the neck pain, eye pain, forehead pain ... Thank God for ice packs I say!
Did You Know
Did you know that I offer telephone counseling around the world via Skype video or via telephone?
That's right, from the privacy and comfort of your own home you can get professional counseling from me. I am not sure if you know this about me, I have a Masters Degree in Counseling and Applied Psychotherapy (MCAP). I have been counseling people for over 16 years. I would love to be of service where I can.
I have an online booking system to make it easy to schedule a session over different time zones. So, you can contact me anytime on-line, book in 24/7, and we will talk as soon as possible.
