Building Resiliency: September 2011 Headache & Migraine Carnival

Welcome to the September 2011 Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival

You may have noticed the carnival is being published in the evening today rather than the morning, as is typical. My husband and I spent a wonderful week on vacation in San Diego, and when we got home Saturday I was so tired blogging was the last thing on my mind. I decided to let myself have some extra time to recover, so that’s why I’m about 12 hours later than usual in putting up the new edition of the carnival. (Photos & stories will be coming soon!)

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 September carnival is “Building Resiliency: How do you bounce back when life kicks you in the chin? What can you share with fellow migraine & headache patients about how to build their coping skills to better handle unexpected, tough situations?” I received a bunch of wonderful entries on this topic. I’m so pleased this many migraine & headache bloggers were able to participate this time and share their thoughts & experiences on this topic!
