Migraine Awareness Band GIVEAWAY

IMG_7135 (1)

As the last week of June continues, so do the GIVEAWAYS!  To end the month, I encourage you to continue advocating throughout the year.  But how do you advocate?  How do you show support for migraine awareness and continue to help?  It’s not as hard as you think.

I simply wear purple.  Purple is the color of migraine awareness.  I like to wear purple in hopes that someone will comment on it and I can explain how purple represents migraine awareness.

Another way I show support is by wearing migraine gear.  I have t-shirts from events that I have supported and donated to.  I’m a walking advertisement for the cause when I simply wear my tshirt.

I also wear a  migraine awareness band from The Migraine Cause

What if you don’t have gear?  Here comes the giveaway!!!!!

I have partnered with themigrainecause to giveaway 3 bracelet bands

The migraine cause was created almost a year ago. The mission has always been to raise migraine awareness and to help find a cure through bracelets since 15% of sales are donated to the National Headache Foundation. The main goal is to expand the online shop with many more items that help support migraineur’s and spread awareness. She started the migraine cause because she realized how many people suffer from migraines and how many people don’t realize how debilitating it is to have them. The creator has had migraines for 5 years and her life hasn’t been the same ever since. She knows a lot of her triggers now and avoids them as much as she can but still finds it hard to manage. The one thing that has really helped with her migraines is eating cleaner and healthier. What you put in your body is very important because it will cause your body to react in a positive or negative way. Barbara really hopes to accomplish her mission and goals for the millions of people that are suffering. “ www.themigrainecause.ecwid.com

  1. I just found your blog. I think it’s amazing that you’re doing this to help spread awareness. As a migraine suffer myself, I understand how others can be confused and completely oblivious to what we go through on a daily basis.

  3. Up until recently I thought I was alone in the battle. I never knew there were so many that suffered from migraines the way I did or even worse. I wouldn’t wish these on my worst enemy. I have had them since I was 16 (if I had them at a younger age I don’t remember). At one time I could take 2 excedrin and lay down and it would go away. But the older I got the worse they got and everything that was OTC quit working. I went to the dr and was put on Triptans. They had to be changed over the years because they would quit working after a certain amount of time. Then at the age of 35 I had 2 heart attacks and since I showed no risk factors for them to happen the dr said it was possible that it was the Triptans that causes it since I had been on them for so long and had started taking so many. Funny thing though, after my heart attacks I went 2 years with no migraines, if I felt my head starting to hurt I could take 1 telenovela and be ok. But they have started up again and they are worse now than they have ever been and I can’t take Triptans anymore (at least I’m not suppose to) because of my heart attacks. So I finally get to see a neuro on the 19th and go from there. Until then it’s prayers, bc’s, and oxycodone when I can get it.
    I try to tell everyone I can about them and explain more and more to my loved ones because they are having a hard time understanding. Especially my 2 girls who are 13 and 11. My migraines have taken so much time away from them and my husband to. And with what he is going through right now he really needs me. He suffered from depression and is out of work right now.
    I had an awareness bracelet but I passed it on. I would love to have anothe time to wear! Thank you for what you are doing! I am so glad I saw your post about your blog!!!

    • Thank you for sharing your story. The heart attacks are so scary. Triptans really make my heart race and it scars me. It’s all a journey and I used to think I was alone too. I’m glad you found my blog too. I learn so much from my readers and hope to pass on support to you.

  4. I advocate for myself, and others who have migraines, especially those of differing degrees that are outside the scope of what most people think of migraine. It’s hard to not be believed about migraines when you don’t fit in someone’s boz
