I used to be a singer and music teacher. Now I write and run an altered vintage plate business.

With over four years of experience in Chronicpainland I mostly feel as if I am coping well and hope that I have something to offer others struggling through the grief, confusion, and darkness that can come with a migraine-filled life.

I also still need buckets of support, so this blog remains a way to connect with others who are experiencing similar challenges, share strategies and resources, and navigate my emotions in a way that is perhaps more constructive than crying into the empty pan that held an entire cake only moments before (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

Beyond that, I am striving to use my experiences and writing as advocacy tools. I believe western medicine and society as a whole have a long way to go to properly support people living with chronic pain.

You can find me on TwitterPinterestInstagram, and Etsy, and contact me by email: anna@migrainebrainstorm.com

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I have just started my own blog and have suffered with migraines for over 18 years of my 22 year life. I was wondering if you would maybe do a guest post and open a discussion about migraine? If not, would I be able to use some of the information on your blog (with links)
