Submit Your Most Memorable Advocacy Experience

What is one of your most memorable advocacy experiences in your headache disease journey/daily life? Try to recall a time when you practiced advocacy. Perhaps you shared your story, posted on social media, or attended an advocacy event such as Headache on the Hill or a Miles for Migraine event. Looking back on that experience, what did you notice? Think about what was said, what you felt, and the outcome. Did you experience a negative moment such as shame, stigma, or a positive moment such as joy, hope or relief? If there was conflict, did you resolve it or was it a conflict that still affects you today? If the outcome was positive, how did that make you feel? Did the outcome cause you to advocate again for yourself? How has your most memorable story shaped you today? There is no right or wrong way to share your story. Try to recall who was there, what was said and how you felt. Notice the theme as it relates to your story – does it fit into one of these themed categories?
