August Headache & Migraine Blog Carnival: How Do You Cope with Your Headache Disorder?

Welcome to the August 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 August carnival is “How do you cope with your headache disorder(s)?” It seems like a simple question, but there is an almost endless list of little and big things we do every day to cope with our headaches and migraines. From chatting online with our chronic buddies to cuddling with our pets, every single piece of the coping puzzle is important. We can use each other as the great resources we are for knowing how to make our lives tolerable and even good despite our headaches and migraines.

Read on for this month’s collection of posts.
