MHAM Blog

Leading up to and during the month of June, we are featuring daily blog posts from the headache and migraine community. Some of the posts are written by long-time advocates, and some are written by brand new advocates. We thank you for your support of all of these bloggers and and ask you to encourage them as some of the individuals speak up for the very first time. Sharing your personal story is a great way to become an advocate - of yourself, of your disease and our community.

The views expressed in these posts do not necessarily reflect the position or views of CHAMP or MigraineHeadacheAwarenessMonth.org.
