If you’ve been on my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you’ve seen my onslaught of shares from the new #SpeakYourMigraine awareness campaign sponsored by Amgen and Novartis. Remember when I wrote that I visited New York in May but couldn’t tell you why? Well, I participated in this very campaign. It was an eye opening experience for me. The questions I was asked during the photo and video shoot were personal and heartbreaking. Even though I am a migraine advocate, it’s still tough reliving moments that are most emotional for me. You’ll see it all in this campaign. I hope that people who aren’t familiar with migraine -OR- have loved one’s with migraine and throw the first stone will start to understand what it’s like for us. We are not making it up! Migraine is real!
