Day 27: Titles- if I were to name some book titles this would be them: WEGO 30 posts in 30 days

If you wrote a book about your life, your community, your condition, or your Health Activism

what would you title it? Come up with 5 working titles.

Titles for fibromyalgia and migraines

1- Brain on Fire: when migraines and fibromyalgia merge
2- I see Sparkles: The persistent migraine aura
3- Brain of Pain: Fibromyalgia and a brain designed for pain
4- Dualism: Me and That Damned Body
5- Misfiring Brain: chronic migraines, persistent migraine auras and migraine associated vertigo working together to distort your reality.

And here are some migraine books on my reading list recommended by Diana Lee

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.
