What I want to say today is pretty short and sweet... well, perhaps a bit bittersweet.
It's been a tough couple of weeks for me due to losing our sweet cat Ali. Ali was my dear, dear Migraine buddy. She had been slowing down, which at first, I didn't worry about too much because she was an elderly kitty. We don't know how old she was, only that she was an adult when we adopted her, and she was with us for 17 years. When it appeared that she might be in pain, we took her to the veterinarian, where we learned that she had arthritis and breast cancer, and was, indeed, in pain.
Today, I want to thank everyone who has sent condolences and thank everyone for their love and kindness during this horribly difficult period. Your support means more to me than I know how to express. Undoubtedly, you've helped a great deal.
Do you have a special Migraine Buddy? When I told my editor at HealthCentral about Ali, she suggested that I write a about her for the HealthCentral Migraine site. Then, when I turned the piece in to be edited, she also suggested that I invite others to share the story of their Migraine Buddies. If you have a special Migraine Buddy (person or pet), and you'd like to share about them, please take a look at My Migraine Buddy Ali — Who's Yours? There's a link at the end of the piece to submit your story to be published on HealthCentral.
Again, thank you so much for your kindness and support!
