If you wrote a book about your life, your community, your condition, or your Health Activism
Titles for fibromyalgia and migraines
And here are some migraine books on my reading list recommended by Diana Lee
Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn’t Go Away
All in My Head: An Epic Quest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable, and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache
The Migraine Brain: Your Breakthrough Guide to Fewer Headaches, Better Health
The Woman’s Migraine Toolkit: Managing Your Headaches from Puberty to Menopause (A DiaMedica Guide to Optimum Wellness)
Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches: What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You…That You Need to Know
And I would recommened for migraine awareness:
Migraine Expressions. The artwork is vivid and sometimes even tormented. There is something about artwork that can just tell a story so well. The poetry is full of imagery and compositions that really show a connection. I absolutely love some of them. The essays, so far are very interesting. One has the perspective of a woman living with a man who has chronic migraines, which was very revealing to me… as she had described is a pain she cannot reach, cannot sympathize and must let him handle it… and that he forgets conversations, his personality is muted and he is an absence of what he was. And of course my essay “To all those with Migraines: I too share your brain cramps”, on pages 28-30. It is good for a giggle trust me. Anyway, this does bridge that gap of personal experiences and the subjectivity of pain. I saw myself reflected so many times. I like that, that others know my experience, have lived it and are surviving it.
I’m sorry to say I don’t have any other recommendations. It is been too long since I have read any books on migraines and FM… since I was diagnosed in fact. Since I realized they said the same things or worse contrary things. I would like to read some on actual research and facts though and will look into others recommendations.
