1% Thursday: Cousin Mig Returns

I was thinking this past week about some of the feedback I got from the post about Cousin Mig.  In fact, I still find myself using that analogy when it comes to my own migraine attack.

So I have a very simple suggestion for this week.  It’s this: talk about Cousin Mig.  Link to the article if you like.

If you use Twitter, you could tweet something like Cousin Mig came to visit today http://tinyurl.com/cousmig.  Or you could add to your facebook status: Missed the party last night thanks to Cousin Mig http://tinyurl.com/cousmig.  Or do the same in an email, or your instant message status.

Please note: The important thing is not linking to this post.  The important thing is helping people to understand the impact of migraine on your life.  If there’s another post or webpage somewhere out there that really says it for you, link to that.  Or write your own blog post, or Facebook note, and link to that.

However you do it, this week let’s show the world just how unwelcome Cousin Mig is – there’s a reason we don’t want him around any longer.

What is 1% Thursday?

1% Thursday

Every Thursday at Headache and Migraine News (weather permitting) we’ll talk about one measurable, practical thing we can do to make our lives just 1% better.  Usually it will be something very easy, sometimes it will be a challenge.  Let us know if you try it, or share an idea of your own – and maybe a year from now we’ll see that things have really changed for the better!

    My migraines completely totally went away after going fully, seriously gluten free for over a year. It’s been over 2 *years* without a migraine. Before going gluten free (I am not celiac), I had a monthly, 7 day long excruciating migraine with my cycle. Frova and Pamprin Blue (combined) would make it possible for me to survive and be a parent, but after going gluten free, one month, then another, then another, *no migraine* and I realized about a year ago that I just am not a migraine sufferer any more! I so hope that everyone who suffers so severely the way that I did almost all of my life (for over 20 years) tries going gluten free for a year to see if it works for you too.
