New Migraine Site Launched at Migraine.com

MigraineCom175w Migraine disease impacts 37 million people in the United States alone. Migraines can be debilitating, frightening, frustrating, and isolating. The Internet has opened many doors for Migraineurs. We now have more information available than ever before. Still, the need for educational information, support, and advocacy continues, and Internet sites that are accurate and unbiased continues.

Today, a new Migraine site is officially launching at Migraine.com. For a few months now, a team has been working to add content to Migraine.com, and I'm pleased to be one of the patient advocates and bloggers writing for the site. I'm impressed by the knowledge and passion of everyone involved with the site.

On Migraine.com, you can find:

  • Informative articles about Migraine disease, the types of Migraines, Migraine treatments, Migraine Triggers, and more.
  • Blogs by two great Migraine specialists, Dr. Susan Hutchinson and Dr. Dawn Marcus.
  • Blogs by patient advocates and bloggers whom you probably already know:
  • A discussion forum.
  • An "Ask the Experts" section where you can ask your Migraine related questions.
  • A Migraine Symptom Checker
  • A section of Patient Stories where you can read about other people and their Migraines.

The site has an online Migraine Journal with great new features coming for 2011.

To encourage Migraineurs to share their story, one of the first 500 people who register as a member at Migraine.com and write their Patient Story will win an Apple iPad!

One person has already asked me a question that I know more of you will ask - Does my writing on Migraine.com mean I'll stop any of the work on the other sites I write for or own? No. I will be continuing with my other work as well. We Migraineurs need all the good resources we can get!

Come check out Migraine.com soon!

Live well,

Migraine Info: Passing It On

SmileyCentral.comThis past week, I came across a post on MigrainePuppet, a blog written by a fellow Migraine sufferer. The title of the entry was "Pass It On," and I found it to be passionate, heart-warming, and inspiring. It made me say to myself, "This is why I love my work. This is why I do what I do."

Puppet has been working very hard to educate herself about her Migraines, her triggers, and other aspects of her health so she can work more closely with her doctor as a treatment partner. With knowledge behind her, she has become comfortable with asking her doctor questions and even sometimes disagreeing with her doctor.

At her latest appointment, she and her doctor even discussed her doctor's Migraine and triggers. Puppet may well have given her doctor some tips that will help HER.

I've been reading Puppeg's blog since she started it, and as someone looking in from the outside, I think I may see better than she does how much progress she has made. It's makes me happy for her and very proud of her. It also makes me grateful to have been able to help her learn.

From my own battle with Migraines, I know how strongly the disease can impact our lives; how it can reduce our quality of life. Ten years ago, I started treatment with Dr. William B. Young at the Jefferson Headache Center in Philadelphia. He helped me get my life back, and that's one reason I do what I do. I want to pass on as much information and support as I can because so much has been given to me. I want to "Pay it forward."

Are you a Migraineur who has learned about Migraines and gotten support when you needed it? You don't have to blog about it to pass it on. You don't have to work in the filed as I do. When you come across someone having problems with Migraines, share the information you've gained. Help them find the support they need. Certainly, if you have a blog, you can post there to help others, but helping just one person that you come across goes a long way. I've found that Facebook is another place where I can "pay it forward." It's a great place to post links to helpful information and support resources.

I hope you'll take a few minutes to read Puppeti's blog entry, Pass It On. It made my day brighter, and I hope it will do the same for yours.

Live well,

Migraines Are Curable - Not Yet!

MTruthWOfBlogMigraines Are Curable! That was the title of a blog entry that Arabella wrote about on her blog, Migraine Truth.

I don't have a problem with the title of the blog entry, but I had as many problems with the actual blog post as Arabella did. The author of that post had read an article by Dr. Allan Purdy, a wonderful Migraine expert, who had used the same title for a recent research paper he wrote. The difference is that Dr. Purdy was NOT saying that Migraine us curable at this time, but the blogger had taken parts of Purdy's paper out of context and made some statements that just didn't fly.

After Arabella wrote her post, several of her readers commented, as did the chiropractor who had written the original blog entry. I'm not going to say more here because I really hope you'll take a few minutes to read Arabella's blog and the ensuing comments on her post.

Please read Migraines are Curable - Here We Go Again. I also encourage you to post comments and take part in the discussion there. It's interesting, AND the writer of the offending blog entry needs to hear from all of us.

To Arabella, great job! Thank you for your vigilance.

Live well,
