Migraine Awareness Month 2016
Migraine awareness month 2016 is here. June is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month and I have a few things planned to raise awareness and have a little fun.
I’m going to show you how I wear migraine awareness (and give away some things to wear yourself!).
I’ll mention some great causes you can donate to, give you other ways to support migraine awareness, and Giveaway some of the things I use! It’ll be even better than last year!
***********STAY TUNED DAILY TO SEE UPDATES***************
Rule your Headache Disorder
This year’s Awareness Month theme is Rule Your Headache Disorder. To “rule” our headache disorders, we have to take charge of our health and health care. Stay actively engaged in your own treatment. Read more at Health Central.
Each day I will be posting a prompt for you to learn and pass on through social media. Please be sure to follow me on:
I am posting facts and you can share them to make some “noise.” It will get people talking about migraine and headache disorders.
