Have you ever watched from inside your body as your vision got rainbow-edged blurry and then narrowed down to a pinpoint so you feared you were going blind? That’s what my migraine aura feels like. And, I am not alone – there are 37 million people in the U.S. who get migraines, too.


Every June, the National Headache foundation sponsors educational activities for migraineuses (females who get migraines; males are called migraineurs), family, and friends. First up – a webinar about chronic migraine being given tomorrow, June 5, 2013, by George Nissan, Doctor of Osteopathy. Free registration at: http://www.headaches.org/content/nhf-webinars.


Upcoming webinars include “Headache Myths” and “Post Traumatic Headache in Students” (June 19). Previous webinars are either archived or have transcripts available on the same page.


The best thing about Migraine and Headache Awareness Month? They chose purple as their color – my favorite! So, this month, show purple and show support!
