Migraine & Headache Awareness Month: Special Edition

It's Migraine & Headache Awareness Month, and so this month I'm going to share some of the highlights (so far) from around the web.  We'll start with a few photos, then some blog posts, and end off with some tweets.

Obviously I could have listed double or triple of what I did, but this will get you started.  This is a great chance to meet some new people and check out some new blogs!


Blog Posts

Some of these are from the blog challenge prompts at the Headache Disorders Awareness Site, so we'll start with those (in order) and then add a few more.  I really encourage you to take the time to click each link - some of these are brilliant.
