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 I could. On the last night, I was barely walking but needed to eat. Erica and I sat together. Her kindness and understanding was felt through our mutual respect for migraine and what it does to our bodies. As I sat in my pjs, we talked (she mostly talked while I stared at my 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 lots of people and Erica is 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 like 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).
