The good news is that these are the very same people who are often extremely motivated to get better, so you can benefit from the wisdom found on their Web sites.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • There are many blogs devoted to migraine and chronic daily headaches. Find one that resonates with you and participate in their forum or contribute comments. You might end up creating a valuable community of friends who can support you when you need it most.
  • Men are underrepresented on blogs, as women make up 70 percent or more of migraineurs. If you are a man suffering with migraines, consider starting your own blog. Your experiences can be a source of inspiration to other men experiencing the same condition.
