Migraines & Spirituality: July Headache Blog Carnival

Welcome to the July 2008 edition of the Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival.

Generally speaking, a blog carnival is a collection of links to a variety of blogs on a central topic. The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with unique opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

For the July 2008 carnival I solicited submissions on the topic of “How Spirituality Help Us Cope with Migraines”, but also welcomed entries of general interest to a headache and migraine sufferers. Please continue reading for this month’s collection of posts.

Sue presents Hope posted at InnerDorothy, saying, “My diagnosis was recently changed from Chronic Daily Headache to Migraine without Aura. I was surprised by the deep spiritual impact of this shift in understanding of my disease. The good news is that the headache neurologist offered me hope, something I needed desperately. This post is about the importance of that hope for all of us.”
