OK, I'm seldom at a loss for words, but I just saw a book that leaves me feeling inadequate to express my thoughts about it in words.
All of those words come to mind, yet none seem adequate for this book. Migraine Expressions, edited by Betsy Blondin, is the first book of its kind. Through the words and images submitted by Migraineurs, this book takes you into the world of Migraine sufferers. I am in awe of people who can express themselves in this fashion.
Please, please, please, go to www.MigraineExpressions.com and get a copy of this book! If you have Migraine disease, you will find yourself in its pages. If you don't, this book will help you understand the disease and its sufferers better.

NEW MIGRAINE ART
Groundbreaking book depicts migraine in insightful visual and written art from migraineurs worldwide
No other book expresses migraine in both words and art of people who suffer the symptoms and survive the disease; most books about migraine are from experts who define, explain, and offer advice on how to manage it. This book will complement existing information, be instrumental for people with migraine to share experiences and communicate feelings, and serve as a tool for furthering understanding among non-migraineurs.
Migraine is a neurobiological disease impacting more than 30 million people in the
Suzanne E. Simons, Executive Director of the National Headache Foundation, commented, “Congratulations! The images and the words are compelling. Migraineurs will relate to the visual images and poems. Those who don’t suffer may be better able to empathize after reading the book.”
The book includes a foreword by leading migraine educator, advocate and author, Teri Robert, Ph.D., who says, “Projects such as Migraine Expressions are rare, priceless, and sorely needed. They offer an intimate view of the impact of migraine disease. The works of art in this book are deeply personal and revealing. They are heart-wrenching and inspiring, filled with both terror and hope.”
