Yesterday Migraine.com published an article I wrote about the piss poor media coverage of Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann's health situation.

Like you and me, she lives with migraine disease. Like me, it's chronic migraine disease. Unfortunately some media outlets have resorted to the most antiquated, sexist ways of referring to migraine disease, including calling it "stress-induced episodes." We know stress doesn't cause migraine attacks, and calling it anything other than migraine disease is ridiculous.

I'm incredibly proud of this article. I hope you'll take a moment to read it and pass it along to your friends and family.

In Defense of Michele Bachmann, Migraineur, Congresswoman, Presidential Candidate
