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!
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).
