Thankfulness: November Headache & Migraine Blog Carnival

Welcome to the November 2010 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.

The theme of the November carnival is “What are you thankful for despite living with migraine disease?”

Please read on for this month’s collection of posts.
