NPR has added a section to All Things Considered that every first-Saturday of the month, they have an author read a story submitted by listeners. The story must be a true story in which you were involved with. Now, I'm sharing this because I still firmly believe that we'll have a better chance of being understood by others -- bosses, etc.,-- and a better chance of Drs knowing about CHs and researchers getting more $$$ if we get the word out as much as we can. So, if those of you who are inclined want to write a story it would be good to write one dealing w/CH and an event that transpired or how a headache, cycle or having them in general has made an impact on your life. At first when I was considering it I was thinking that it should be the most harrowing and dramatic thing to be told. And that may be beneficial. However, if you want to write about something funny that may have transpired (in retrospect it may have seemed funny, at least)that would be good too. As long as the word gets out that we exist and the name of the disease gets put in people's head, at a later point and time we can associate that new word to them with what it really is. So, for those of you who will write a story click on the link and good luck. I hope that yours gets picked.
