Misunderstanding Migraine: June 2009 Headache Blog Carnival

Welcome to the June 2009 Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival.

The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

For the June 2009 carnival I solicited submissions on the topic of “What people don’t understand about migraines & about what it’s like to live with them.”

Please keep reading for this month’s collection of posts.

James Cottrill presents a creative take on the topic with the information post Major Shift in Migraine Thought (Part 1) posted at the Headache and Migraine News Blog.

Megan Oltman shares a poem about telling others about chronic illness called Catching Up posted at the Free My Brain From Migraine Pain blog.

Stephanie presents Love Hurts posted at Head Wise Woman.

Sue presents Solid Walls Just Pretending posted at Inner Dorothy.

Andy presents Dancing For Rainbows posted at Against the ‘Graine.

Jasmine presents Understanding Invisible Illnesses posted at Jasmine’s Cove.

Rosalind Joffe presents 5 Things I Want You to Know about Working While Living with a Chronic Illness posted at Working with Chronic Illness.

We also have three great submissions this month that are outside the theme.

Kelli presents Are My Migraines My Own Fault posted at Kelli’s Migraine Daily.

Emily presents Bad Headache Days 26 & 27 2009 posted at No Extended Warranty.

Mike presents TMS and Migraines posted at Brain Stimulant.

Submit your blog post to the July 2009 edition of the Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival using our carnival submission form or by e-mailing your submissions to me directly. We won’t have a theme for the July carnival. Instead, submit your favorite post from the past month. Entries are due by midnight on Friday, July 13, and the carnival will be posted right here at Somebody Heal Me on Monday, July 10.
