Express Your Migraines (Vol.2 – Basia Kowalska)
Description/Explanation of Work
“Headache” I took this photo with the intent to title it “migraine”, but ended up deciding that such a name was unfitting. A migraine isn’t just pain and a cold sweat, it’s a barrage of other symptoms that weren’t represented here. I don’t want to mislead people with the idea that a migraine isn’t much, it’s definitely much worse than having one’s head [safely] set on fire.

What Inspired you to create this?
I was challenged by a friend to create a conceptual image that represents something important in my life – migraines are my biggest weakness and getting them weekly has inhibited my successful development.
Anything else you’d like to share with us or the Migraine Buddy community?
We need the support of the medical research community to help us through this, and even if we are not in the field ourselves, we can all still do something to bring more attention to this issue and encourage others to work on a solution.
So let’s do what we can to make sure future generations don’t suffer as we do.
We understand how hard it can be to live with an invisible illness. This is why we want to help share your artistic creations in hopes of inspiring others and also motivating those in the community to push on! Express your migraines today here: http://bit.ly/ExpressYouMB ?
