Life hasn't slowed down as some people thought it might after I hit 60. I'm busier and busier between my "regular" job and volunteer activities. My personal site and blog have fallen behind, but I've been taking time to update them and get them back up to speed.
This is quite an exciting time for me as I've been invited to do something I've never done before — be a co-investigator for a research study. Dr. Todd Schwedt and Dr. David Dodick, both at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, have set out to determine the best strategy for treating patients who have both chronic Migraine and medication overuse headache. This is a huge problem for patients, and years of experience with the situation haven't revealed a "best" strategy. Thanks to funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute, we're embarking on a five-year study to find the answer.
Reducing Confusion! Over the last several years, I fell into the trap of registering domain names I thought would make great web sites. In the end, having too many web sites ended up being confusing for you and for me. So, I'm in the process of making MigraineDisease.com my main personal web site.
There's a lot going on in Migraine and Headache research. Unfortunately, people are having problems holding onto the hope that the research is going to help them. On my blog, Putting Our Heads Together, I'm trying to do more to look at all the issues surrounding Migraine and other Headache disorders and give people reasons for hope.
You can find a lot of my "work" on Remedy Health Media's HealthCentral Network Migraine site. I write informative content for them weekly, and Dr. David Watson and I answer patient questions in our Ask the Clinician column.
The American Headache and Migraine Association is a nonprofit organization for patients who live with Migraine and other Headache disorders, as well as their families and friends.
