For the month of April I'm participating in WEGO Health's Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Prompts. If you'd like more information or want to participate, too, please visit: Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge.

Today's WEGO Health Activist Writing Month Prompt is: "Gobbledygook Day. Make up a new word (it can be a combination of words or complete nonsense). What is the word?

Some of my twitter pals use the word "painsomnia", which I absolutely love. It means insomnia caused by unrelenting pain. Isn't it just perfect? I know most of us can totally relate to it.

A phrase I coined recently is "migrainous interruptus". This occurs when an activity becomes interrupted by the symptoms of a migraine attack. Something we all know well. And how fun to have a flashy little phrase for describing it.

What made up migraine words have you thought up?
