Dreams of Our Future with Migraines - Holiday Migraine Tips
This is a time of year when many of us who live with migraines start dreaming of things we want to do in and with our lives despite the impact of migraine disease. I certainly do, and I dream for the entire migraine community, including our grandchildren who have migraines. Today, I want to share some of my dreams with you and ask you to share some of yours with all of us.
So, here goes. Here are some of my dreams:
- Going a month without a migraine.
- Seeing more success stories in our Facebook group.
- Adequate research funding for migraine and other headache disorders.
- An end to people losing hope and taking their lives because of migraines or headaches.
- Unity and cooperation among everyone in the online migraine community.
- Seeing spammers, scammers, and snake oil salesmen get what they deserve.
- The 36 Million Migraine campaign successfully meeting their goals.
- The completion and release the fabulous migraine documentary, Out of My Head.
- More qualified migraine and headache specialists so we have at least one in every state.
- Increased public education about and awareness of migraine disease.
- Elimination of the stigma associated with migraine and all diseases and illnesses.
- Preventive medications actually developed for migraine prevention as opposed to all the "hand-me-down" medications we now use for prevention.
- Abortive medications that we can all use safely.
- Better, more successful migraine management for all of my migraine family.
- Growth in the membership of the American Headache and Migraine Association (AHMA).
- An end to the fear of our next migraine, a fear so very many of us live with.
- An end to the guilt so many of us have and the feeling that we're a burden to our family and friends.
