Diana Lee has brought us another great stack of reading with the October Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival. Generally speaking, a blog carnival is a
collection of links to a variety of a blogs on a central topic. The
Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to
provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with
unique opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest
and importance to us.
Exploring the relationship between Migraines and depression, there are a number of thought provoking posts, some on this topic and some on others. As if coping with the pain, nausea and disability wasn't enough, depression and Migraine are co-morbid conditions, often occurring together. When we have a Migraine attack, one of the effects is that serotonin levels are depleted. So even for those of us who do not grapple with depression on an ongoing basis, bouts of depression around Migraine attacks are common. I hope you go over to Somebody Heal Me and read some of these posts - and I hope they help you manage your own brain!
