Migraine Awareness Merchandise: Achy Smile Shop

achy smile shop

Migraine awareness merchandise is easy to start a conversation with, lower stigma, and takes pride in the cause you are fighting. What better way to kick off migraine awareness month than wearing migraine apparel all month? June is migraine awareness month, and Achy Smile Shop has many options for you.

Achy Smile

The designer behind this migraine awareness merchandise is my friend Erica. Erica is a powerful woman with a big smile! She is a mom of 2 teenagers and lives in North Carolina with her husband. She was diagnosed with a rare illness known as Hemiplegic Migraine (HM) in 2009 after battling symptoms of stroke and epilepsy since 2004.  Since she started her blog and rocketed into apparel, she has been a strong supporter and voice for the chronic illness community. Achy Smile and My Migraine Life have been friends virtually for years.

Last year at Retreat Migraine, I was VERY sick! I stumbled around the conference back and forth from my room, trying to get as much out of the weekend as possible. On the last night, I was barely walking but needed to eat. Erica and I sat together. Her kindness and understanding were felt through our mutual respect for migraine and their effects on our bodies. As I sat in my PJs, we talked (she mostly talked while I stared at the roll I was trying to stomach), and she distracted me from my pain for the entire meal. This is the only picture I took from the weekend with someone else. I knew many people, and Erica was the only one I could muster up a smile for. My buddy!

Migraine Awareness

The most amazing thing about being a migraine advocate is finding others to connect to. I didn’t have to explain myself. She just got me. With that said, I encourage you to look at Achy Smile Shop and use code MYMIGRAINE to support Erica as she did me. To express that migraine is way more than a headache, and it’s something we all hide so well. Behind that smile, I had a migraine, upper respiratory infection, and double ear infection (all discovered after flying home).

I received the Radiance diffuser and Master Aromatherapist kit to review. It has been a gift that my whole family enjoys blends. The exciting thing about having chronic migraine is that smells are very personal and a constantly evolving sense. Some days I diffuse oils for an extended amount of time. On other days I can’t…

Bright snow triggers migraine attacks in me. I live in the snow belt of Cleveland. We currently have mass amounts of snow. It’s crazy cold out, but oh well. I’m used to it. So we hibernate. But unlike those cozy, dozy bears in a dark cave, I am forced to face the dreaded snow glare.…
