When I started my blog, I had no idea what it would lead to. I had no idea if anyone would even read it! What I did know was that I needed to write about this part of my life... I needed to put my voice, thoughts and experiences into the world for myself. I was exhausted from constantly explaining to a variety of people that chronic migraine is NOT "just a headache"... It is a neurological disease that has yet to be cured. Sure, there are things that I can do to help manage the pain, but there is no stretch, drink, vitamin, shake or old wives tale that will cure me. Chronic migraine walks alongside everything I do in my life, and I wanted to give the world a glimpse of what it feels like to be me.
Over the past year and a half, I have found a deep and beautiful passion for raising awareness for myself and the migraine community. Through just openly telling my story, there have been so many that reach out to me and say, "Me too" or "I thought I was alone in this, I am so glad I found your page!" Messages like those mean SO much to me and are to motivation to keep going. It has always been my goal to just help one person... and to know that I am actually reaching more than the one and helping several is overwhelming and humbling.
Through blogging and sharing on social media, different opportunities have come my way. Very few do I say yes to because it is so important to me to stay true to who I am and what I am physically capable of... and that includes any kind of partnerships that I could enter into. When I was first contacted by Lyfebulb I knew this was an incredible opportunity. Researching them, their mission and their organization, I was impressed and inspired. I am truly honored and proud to announce that I have officially joined them as their one of their first ambassadors for migraine! Patient advocacy, community connection and support are their main focus and it is a perfect fit for me since our goal are aligned. I feel so supported and welcomed by Lyfebulb and I can't wait use my passion and experience to help them raise awareness for migraine.
