As a forensic nurse and former death investigator for the State of Maryland’s medical examiner’s office, George Mason University researcher Katherine Scafide has long served people who fell victim to violence.

“One of the challenges I would face much of the time was examining injuries on victims of violence who have darker skin," said Scafide, who is a professor in the School of Nursing in George Mason University's College of Health and Human Services. “If we can't see the injury, then we can't document it. That documentation serves as really important evidence in court.”

There is no cure for migraine.

No medication. No supplement. No lifestyle factor. No holistic therapy. There is NO cure for migraine.

Migraine is a genetic neurological disease- it cannot be cured.

Luckily, there’s still A LOT of room for hope. Our migraine attacks can go into remission, and it can be to a point that we never experience a migraine attack ever again in our lives. Every day we can take new, small steps into improving our health and getting closer to managing our migraine disease.

We can use a combination of all of these methods- medications, supplements, lifestyle factors, complementary medicine, and so many others- and we can take control of our health. Does that mean all of us can easily achieve full remission? No! We can do every single thing “right”, and we can still get a migraine attack. Some of us may do everything by the book and still experience attacks every single day. Migraine is NEVER our fault.

Recognize your efforts, regardless of whether you are seeing progress. That effort alone is worth celebrating.
