A couple of weeks ago, I attended the American Headache Society's annual scientific and the American Headache and Migraine Association's fourth annual patient conference in San Diego. I was there for nearly a week learning, networking, meeting new people, speaking on advocacy, and much more.
One of the highlights of the trip — one that I truly want to share with you — was meeting Anna Eidt and seeing a spectacular video she created presented at both meetings. The American Headache Society, American Migraine Foundation, and American Headache and Migraine Association conducted our first annual Migraine Moment Film Contest, which encouraged people with Migraine to produce short films that express their thoughts and feelings about their condition.
Anna's Film, "This Day," was the first place winner. I have to admit that it brings tears to my eyes each time I watch it, and find it especially impressive that Anna wrote and performed the song that you hear throughout the video. It's a great song, one I get stuck in my head every time I hear it. But with this song, that's fine by me!
So, grab a tissue, and enjoy "This Day."
Congratulations, Anna! It was a pleasure to meet you and have some time to chat!
because a migraine is NOT "just a headache"
