Name the Spokesperson - (Day 10)

Today's blog prompt is as follows: "Choose any celebrity to represent Migraine (whether they have Migraine or not) who would it be and why?"

I'm not going to.

I don't think that Migraine needs to have a celebrity to represent Migraine, especially one who has never suffered from them. That just doesn't make sense to me. Instead, I think that we need more actual sufferers to stand up and make their voice be heard. We the migranures need to be our own adovcates, as hard as that can be. 

It really needs to be the actual, plain, average, everyday, ordinary people who need to speak from the heart and tell the truth as it is for them.No two migraine sufferers are the same, as our brain chemistry and wiring are all just slightly different. Therefore, we all have a separate voice and set of experiences. We need more events such as this month's blog challenge to happen on a larger scale, such that we can hammer home to the "healthy" world just exactly what kind of life we have to live when it comes to dealing with Migraine. 

So celebrity talking head? I'll skip and give you a world of Migraine heads instead.
