Working With Migraines & Headaches

Working with migraines or a headache disorder — any misunderstood chronic illness, really — can be grueling and humiliating. If you’re lucky, co-workers who lack compassion and are resentful is the worst you’ll face. Often, though, supervisors and higher ups don’t understand the severity of your illness, your performance suffers and you’re a major topic of gossip.

Migraines in the Workplace is the subject of Wednesday’s HealthTalk webcast. With headache specialist Christina Peterson the expert guest, you’ll learn how to educate your coworkers and protect yourself legally. Migraine sufferer Cynthia M. will also participate in the discussion.

The program starts at 7 p.m. EST Wednesday, May 16. Starting about 10 minutes before the webcast, go to the program’s description page and look for a link that says “Join the Program.”

  1. Right now I am more concerned with my lack of working, as is my boss. Thankfully she is supportive but not nearly as fustrated as I am.

    I’m sorry to hear that. I wish you the best of luck with finding a treatment.

    Take care,
