Migraine Poetry Contest Winners Announced

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • The entries for this year's Putting Our Heads Together Migraine poetry contest were, as always, magnificent. They had our judges going in circles for days trying to choose the winners. As I read them, some made me smile; others brought tears to my eyes.

    I hope you'll enjoy them as much as we did, and I hope you'll share them with other people. If there are people in your lives who still don't understand Migraines, encourage them to read these poems. You may find that these poems touch them in a way that nothing else can and help them understand better.

    Drum roll, please...
