Migraine Awareness Month #16: "Lead, follow, or get our of the way."

Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge #16: “Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”

Which role fits you and why?

I’m a bit late on this one due to having to get a new computer and then spending a day on set up.

I can say I have never been much of a follower.  Sort of the whole antisocial antiauthority personality of mine doesn’t like to follow.  I like to collaborate certainly, but definitely not a follower.  But not a leader either.  Because really I have never been a team player or much for group work per sa, so I’m not about to lead anyone to push boundaries or anything.  I more of a solo player.  In the background sort of speak, unless someone asks for my assistance with a project and then I’m game.  Especially if it tweaks my interest and then I get all into it.  Mostly I do my own thing.  I mean I have a blog… not run a forum.  I write articles freelance which is a solo gig.  I do things like this to throw my voice in the mix and I do as much as I can to promote awareness.  I’m a writer.  Generally that means I’m not a follower or a leader.  I’m a hermit plunking away at a keyboard in the wee hours of the night.  Frankly, I’m lucky if I notice or interact with people.  If I didn’t work then I likely wouldn’t.  Which is why I like having a blog and going to forums because I can be involved in communities and get support.  But when it comes to advocating awareness I’m neither a leader nor a follower, but certainly a contributor.  Or at least I try to be.

National Migraine Awareness Month is initiated by the National Headache Foundation. The Blogger’s Challenge is initiated by www.FightingHeadacheDisorders.com.
