#MHAM2018 Article Round-Up

I didn’t get to participate in #MHAM this year (more on why later), but I’m happy to report that many of my fellow migraine advocates were out in force, writing fierce articles and attending various events throughout the U.S. and beyond in order to spread awareness of this chronic, incurable disease. Here are a few of my favorite picks from the month for anyone who might have missed the flurry of activity:

The Unpredictability of Life With Chronic Migraine, from The Mighty

CGRP Approved, Now What? from Migraine.com (Not sure what CGRPs are? Read this.)

Why Does Migraine Matter? from The Migraine Mantras

When Coworkers See You Work on a Sick Day, from Migraine.com

How to Show Kindness to People in Pain, from Migraine Again with Shaunti Feldhahn

Diagnosis Isn’t a One-Time Thing, from Migraine.com

Migraine Community Mobilizes in Response to Recent ‘Migraine Pose’ Article, by AMF

Note: If you missed the backlash against Elle Magazine’s “Migraine Pose” article, do yourself a favor and check out Instagram and Twitter with the #migrainepose and #truemigrainepose hashtags. The community’s response was inspiring. (And it is the one piece of advocacy I was actually able to attempt last month.)

Here’s wishing you all a healthy, happy, and peaceful summer. 🙂
