Cindy McCain's Migraines and Me

She has given some great interviews. And she says, and I quote, "I’m going to go to Congress... and tell them that it’s time. If you can give five million dollars to study flatulence in cows and its effects on the ozone layer, you can give me some money for migraine research.”

She's turning me on.

It's a glimmer of hope, having a new and powerful advocate. If nothing else, she is educating the masses in a way most of us could never dream. Even if Congress ignores her, she'll still be a hero to me. She's standing up, she's defying the "suck it up" attitude that many migraineurs have been taught/told is the appropriate response and she's making me feel like less of a freak.

You'll probably never read this, but thank you, Cindy, for doing this. It can't be easy. My heart aches with how much it means to me, and for the rest of the migrainous world. Thank you.
