05 Nov Headache Poetry: Headaches Suck
In the fall of 2006 the NHF’s Headache Education and Support Group facilitators invited their attendees to submit headache-related poetry. Because interest in this project grew, it was opened up to all who visit the NHF’s web site, as well as those who read NHF HeadLines.
The NHF received a variety of headache-related submissions. We have selected poems, limericks and verse that are relatable to those who suffer with this disease.
We extend our sincere thanks to all who submitted their work.

I once had a pain in my head,
It started when I was in bed;
But it is my curse it later got worse,
And now I wish I were dead.
