Terrific Migraine Blog: Somebody Heal Me

Somebody Heal Me is a migraine blog that I’ve been digging. A migraine sufferer for 25+ years, Diana also struggles with depression. She writes poignant personal posts, provides regular migraine news roundups and shares links to helpful resources.

Excerpts from some of my favorite posts:

Short Cuts
“Depression has pinned me under its weight, making my household responsibilities next to impossible to meet. Laundry, dirty dishes, pet care, errands and finances all suffer from my inattention.”

Depression Should Not Lead to Dismissal
“[F]urther stigmatizing those with depression and lumping them all together under the umbrella of “danger” isn’t going to do a darned thing to keep anyone safe or get people the help they need. It will do nothing more than discourage people from seeking out help and getting the treatment they so desperately need.”

“I love to laugh. It is probably the only part of my uber depressed personality I’ve been able to retain, and I hope I never lose it.”
