Photo Fridays- Migraine.com Connexion Conference

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Health Union (parent company of Migraine.com) invited all the HQ staff, writers and moderators to join together for the first time at their new space in Philly. One of our co-founders said it best- “Welcome Home.” And that’s exactly what these 2 days felt like.

If you’re not aware, Migraine.com has 21 other sister disease-specific communities (link below). There were representatives from all sites. We learned about the history and future of the company, had break-out sessions on moderating, mindfulness and breathing, personal branding, story-telling and brainstorming sessions for each community.

It was amazing to meet people you’ve known for years, but never met in the flesh. We all have some fangirl experiences, having followed each other for years. Bottom line is that Health Union and all of its sites are dedicated to creating communities where the members are always our main focus.

“Health is about people. Not technology, not cost. It’s about supporting each other.” It was refreshing to hear from leadership what we’ve all known for years, but this reminder urged me to work even harder to help all who come to Migriane.com. It was an inspiring meeting, but also a little taxing on the body- it was worth it.

If you are interested in any of the other Health Union communities that may also help you address other health concerns, you can find them here: www.health-union.com/communities

I’m blessed to be part of such an amazing organization!

Hospital Bill #2

February 6, 2017

This is the second post on a 3-Part Series, dealing with one particular medical bill. Called 9/8– I now had the information the last person asked for. It was on their website. I mean, if I can access it via their website, shouldn’t they be able to find it? There were 3 fairly large charges…

Grandma’s Gout Story for Gout Awareness Day

May 22, 2017

My colorful grandmother, whom I am very close with, relayed to me her personal story about living with gout. May 22nd is Gout Awareness Day and I found it fitting to share this today. As always, Golden Graine is not just about living with chronic migraine, it’s about understanding all forms of chronic pain. In…
