PRESS RELEASE: The National Headache Foundation and I are pleased to announce that the first meeting of the Western New York Migraine and Headache Disorder Support Group will be on Tuesday April 19, 2011, at 7:00 pm. We will meet at 6095 Transit Road, All Care for Women, in East Amherst, New York 14051.
Migraine, a neurological genetic disease thought to be caused by overactive neurons and genetics, affects over 37 million Americans and is the 12th most disabling disorder in the United States. Migraine for some is episodic (occurring occasionally) but for others may become a chronic condition. Living day in and day out with Migraine and head pain is an awful way to exist and can be quite overwhelming. The isolation we feel while trying to cope with these conditions not only affects us, but our family, loved ones and friends as well.
Although there is plenty of wonderful online support, another valuable tool is a community support group. These support groups are cathartic in they allow people to share similar experiences and coping skills in a compassionate setting, supply group members with up to date information and education on Migraine disease and headache disorders in addition to hearing from guest speakers.
I hope to see you there.
Thanks for reading and feel well,
