Teri Robert is hosting the blog carnival this month at My Migraine Connection. There’s a great collection of posts on caring for yourself such that you can actually enjoy the holidays. My contribution is just one post down on this page (unless you’re reading on Facebook, if you are, please hop over to Free my Brain). For the rest of the carnival, please go to December Migraine and Headache Disease Blog Carnival: Holiday Stress. And whatever else you do, remember to slow down and breathe!

October Blog Carnival Coming Up – On Alternative Therapies

September 26th, 2009

Diana Lee of Somebody Heal Me will be hosting the October 2009 Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival on the theme “Alternative therapies – your experiences (good or bad), thoughts about trying them or any other take on the subject.” To participate, send your link to a blog post on the topic, new or old, along to Diana, through the form on the carnival website or directly to her by e-mail.

Submissions are due by midnight (the end of the day) on Friday, October 9. This is a great opportunity to gather a number of posts around a topic of interest to many of us. About 6 weeks later Dr. Christina Peterson will be addressing the same topic on the November Managing Life with Migraine Teleconference, so between the two events we should gather a lot of great advice!

Blog Carnival Time Again!

July 12th, 2009

It’s your hit and run blogger here, catching up to let you know about two wonderful blog carnivals.

How to Cope with Pain published the June Pain Blog Carnival about a week or so ago (told you I was catching up) with lots of great posts on living with chronic pain.  She has kindly listed teleconferences as one of the posts.

Tomorrow tune in to Somebody Heal Me for the July Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival. There is no theme this time, but there are sure to be a number of great posts as usual.

Hope to talk to you again soon!

Headache Carnivals and Awareness

June 8th, 2009

It’s a big week in the world of headache – first of all it’s Migraine and Headache Blog Carnival time again, with this month’s topic of “What people don’t understand about migraines & about what it’s like to live with them” posted over at Somebody Heal Me. Lots of great posts, both on and off topic. If you haven’t checked out The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival before, it was been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

But even bigger news is that it’s National Headache Awareness week, sponsored by the National Headache Foundation.  Educational events are going on throughout the country this week to raise awareness of Migraine and other headache disorders.  A great new tool on the National Headache Foundation web site is Headache U, an on-line resource where you can look up your experiences with headache, create a personal headache profile, and get matched with the right resources for you.

A great week for educating both ourselves and the other people in our lives about Migraine Disease and Headache Disorders!

May Headache and Migraine Blog Carnival

May 12th, 2009

The May Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival is posted at Somebody Heal Me.  Diana Lee created the carnival to provide headache patients and people who blog about headaches with opportunities to share on topics of interest and importance to us.

This month’s carnival was on the topic of “Talk about where to find support: Where do you find it & where can other migraineurs find it?” It’s a very important topic – Headache disorders and Migraine disease are very isolating and we need support! Head over to Somebody Heal Me for a lot of good reading.  Enjoy.

The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

For the March 2009 carnival Diana Lee solicited submissions on the topic of “Advice for Creating a Migraine-Friendly Living Environment,” as well as welcoming entries of general interest to headache and migraine sufferers.  Happy Reading!

February Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival Coming Up

January 28th, 2009

Believe it or not it’s almost February. I can tell because: 1. Winter has already gone on quite long enough and it’s not even half-way over – it will be halfway over next Tuesday, on February 2nd; 2. it’s my dear husband’s birthday in two days and that means it’s my birthday in a week (on February 4th) and we’re both going to be 50 which is really ridiculously hard to accept.

So what does that have to do with the blog carnival?  Ah, well, lest you accuse me of creeping senility, I did have a point… it’s almost February, and Diana Lee gave us lots of warning for the fabulous February Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival – on the Valentine’s Day appropriate theme of “S*x & Migraines: having a s3x life despite migraines, migraines caused by six, when s&x can help with migraines – anything goes! Entries are due by the end of the day on Friday, February 6th. (Notice my clever attempt to foil the spammers – I’ll let you know if it works.)  Submit your carnival posts to Diana through the form on the carnival website or directly to her e-mail – find her through Somebody Heal Me.

The February carnival will be posted on Monday, February 9th at Somebody Heal Me.

Have fun with this theme – and stay warm! BRR!
