I'm Lauren, the girl with the headaches. I was diagnosed with both chronic migraines and chronic daily headache in 2010. I have been on a quest to find a cure ever to my debilitating, invisible illness ever since.
The idea to start a blog was not my own. Family, friends, and colleagues have seen me struggle with chronic pain for many years and have encouraged me to share my story.
In a world where social media encourages us to share only our successes, I am doing the opposite. This is my ugly, unfilitered truth.
I hope that sharing my journey helps others struggling with migraines and other diseases -- and breaks the stigma surrounding invisible illness.
