Visit our forum any day, and you'll find posts from people whose main problem with Migraine care is Attitude — not theirs, but that of some medical professionals, some media, and much of the general public. Too many people still don't realize that Migraine is a genetic neurological disease . They still stereotype us, consider us "drug seekers," and continue to misunderstand Migraine disease. When Michael John Coleman, the director of MAGNUM , the National Migraine Association, and the rest of the MAGNUM staff discovered that Elvis Presley was reported to have been a Migraineur, they set out to investigate.

Nicole is an artist, a mother, a knitter, a spinner, and a chronic pain sufferer. She was diagnosed with chronic intractable migraines in 2000, while pregnant with her first child. That diagnosis marked the beginning of a quest for pain-free living, something she is still searching for. Along the way, she has met many other women with "invisible illnesses"- from PPD to lupus.
