Photo Fridays – My Broken Brain

This is one of my favorite migraine awareness t-shirts. Designed by Don Vanderpool, who runs a Facebook group called “My Broken Brain.” He created this shirt last year and I wear it all the time, especially when I’m about to go into migraine battle!

The back of the shirt covers just about all of the symptoms that go along with migraine attacks that I can think of.

Are there any words on here that describe your migraine attacks? Hiccups, food cravings, anger, cognitive dysfunction, and restless leg are all ones that I deal with.

As Don explains: My Broken Brain is intended to be a place those of us who suffer migraines can simply find others going through the same things. Family members too! I know this disease affects them terribly as well. I would love to see friends and family represented here as much as the migraineurs. Won’t find any cures here, but hopefully some good advice and some neighborly support. There are a lot of great resources out there and I hope to share them and point you in their direction. I hope to have some good info shared here by members as well.
