Welcome to the November 2008 edition of Headache and Migraine Disease Blog Carnival.

Generally speaking, a blog carnival is a collection of links to a variety of a blogs on a central topic. The Headache & Migraine Disease Blog Carnival has been created to provide both headache patients and people who blog about headaches with unique opportunities to share ideas on topics of particular interest and importance to us.

For the November 2008 carnival, we solicited submissions on the topic of the complex relationship between migraine disease and depression. Diana also welcomes entries of general interest to headache and migraine sufferers. Please continue reading for this month’s collection of posts.

Debbie presents her perspective on migraines with a poem and artwork, posted at Down the Rabbit Hole.

Kelly presents My Hospital Migraine Art posted at Fly With Hope.

James presents a collage of Migraine Art made into a video at the Headache and Migraine News Blog.

Jenny Mannion presents Art – Spiritual and Healing at Heal Pain Naturally and has an excellent review of artists and their effect on healing and spirituality.

Diana Lee presents Appealing Art Shown to Ease Pain posted at Somebody Heal Me.  She gives a great summary of research on how art has an effect on pain levels.  She also has one of my favorite paintings shown on the post!

That concludes this edition. Thank you all for your participation in the November 2008 carnival!

The posts are great this month especially James and his video of art. I usually post to the Carnival blog but didn’t this month due to increase work and four (!) head injuries in sports, one of which was a concussion. Tennis can be tough.

That and the fact that posting and doing art is very time intensive meant I just didn’t get it done this month..and that’s OK..sometimes I remind myself it is perfectly OK to let go of things..

I have suffered from migraines for nearly 10 ten years. I never had them before that, but when I turned 26 I started getting them at least once a week. Last month I started using a hot pepper nasal spray that my doctor actually recommended. I didn’t believe it at first, but I tried it and it really has helped me alot. It’s called Headache Buster with capsaicin, feverfew and peppermint. It burns at first but it really helps me beat back the migraines before they develop all the way. Has anybody else tried buster.
