Another Reason to Stop the Stigma

Image if this was your child, nephew, niece, cousin or grandchild.

Not only do these three have to live life with pain from their cluster headaches or migraines they also have to deal with all of the negative stigma surrounding their headache disorders.

Each joke made at their expense. Every person doubting the severity of their migraines or cluster headaches is hurtful and unnecessary because this is a genetic disorder….NOT “Just Headache”

Words hurt, but what hurts worse is society thinking this is not a serious enough medical condition to deserve funding towards research efforts. Efforts where more effective treatments or possibly a cure could be found for millions of Americans that live with some type of headache disorder.
