Migraine Awareness Month #6: Name That Tune!

Today’s question set by the team from  www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com. for June’s Migraine Awareness Month in the USA was –

“Choose a theme song for Migraine disease”

If I am honest songs of pain and sickness did not come to mind at first – but songs which embraces the love and support I get from my virtual migraine family…… in the early days without the support of these people on the fourm and facebook groups – I would have gone under time and time again….

Close family and friends are a must and their support can not be underestimated and I cannot thank my husband enough (he even won carer of the year in 2011) – BUT even with the best will in the world illness fatigue sets in after a few years of this day in day out and the stress (and boredom lol) begins to show on them too…. so having a support network that TOTALLY understands is a life saver…. and I thank you all xx

I also like to think that over the past few years I have also been able to help, support, encourage and virtual hug a lot of people – setting up the forum came in just one afternoon – I am known to plan stuff – this ‘I just did’ and within a few weeks I was talking someone out of suicide……….. things really do happen for a reason x

Music for my migraine family:

As to the answer to the question –  ‘a song which sums up migraine’ – there can only be one……….

No idea what a migraine feels like – here is a song to experience a migraine.. This is a odd one – but watch the video and feel the song – see the aura, the sadness, the despair…. then the hard hitting pain……….. then the realisation ‘you are not alone’

And finally if you are a chronic migrainer – I hope the angels hugged you while you slept last night and this morning you woke with no pain …

and if not – may you find the strength to fight on…..

  1. My thought for a song is; All by myself, by Eric Carmen. Because that is how I truly feel when I have a migraine. No one around me understands the pain I am in, so I am truly all by myself.
