Your response to the 30 Things About My Invisible Illness You May Not Know meme from Invisible Illness Awareness Week last year was so enthusiastic that I’ve adopted and adapted the idea for Migraine and Headache Awareness Month. Since not all headache disorders are the same, I’ve come up with slightly different lists for different types. If you fit multiple categories, you’re welcome to respond all those categories. Links to each set of questions are available at the end of this post.
You can submit your responses to be published on The Daily Headache. Each one will have a unique URL so you can share it any way you’d like. Directions follow. I’ll be highlighting some answers through Migraine and Headache Awareness Month, which starts June 1.
Even if you don’t wish to share your answers, answering them is a helpful way to think about how having a headache disorder has affected your life in both good and bad ways. Filling mine out made me cry happy and sad tears. It also reminded me of the incredible feat of living with a headache disorder, which made me feel proud.

I hope I haven’t made this too complicated in the name of inclusivity! Please let me know if you have any questions. Many thanks to Invisible Illness Awareness Week for this great idea.
