Photo Friday- Write Like You’re Running Out of Time

I am a HUGE fan of the musical Hamilton. There’s a line that is repeated throughout the score: “Why do you write like you’re running out of time?” Alexander Hamilton kept immaculate records and diaries and used the written word to compel others to see his viewpoint.

I may not be writing to fight for the birth of our country, but lately I feel like I’ve been writing like I’m running out of time. And this is a good thing! I’ve had multiple projects come my way where I will have different platforms to not only educate but share other people’s stories. I’ve been blown away by the willingness to open up about the difficulties of living with migraine. Each story is unique, but all sound so familiar too. I can’t wait to share this project with you.

I wish I had been more consistent with my blog schedule, but I guess I have to figure out the balance between all things in my life. I’ll keep writing like I’m running out of time. I don’t think that feeling will ever grow old. It fuels my purpose.

Why I’ve Come to Capitol Hill

February 15, 2017

Organized by the Alliance for Headache Disorders Advocacy (http://allianceforheadacheadvocacy.org/headache-on-the-hill), over 100 patients, doctors and caregivers descended upon Capitol Hill to lobby for migraine research. We met with the offices of Senators and Congressman throughout the day to show how incredibly underfunded this disease is compared…
