Episode 106: The Migraine Diva Jaime Sanders

Overview

Jaime Sanders’ journey with migraine has been life-long. From a toddler with abdominal migraine to a wife and mother with chronic intractable migraine, Jaime has learned to turn her pain into empowerment. She also manages her daily life with depression and anxiety, surviving two suicide attempts, along with fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal stenosis and chronic back pain. Despite these conditions and their limitations, she strives to do her best to find her optimal health. Advocating for headache disorders and mental health are her passions. She is the author of the award-wining blog The Migraine Diva, and was the Migraine Patient Advocacy Coordinator for Global Healthy Living Foundation. Through her work with GHLF, Jaime contributed as a patient reviewer for their First Edition Migraine Patient Guidelines. She is also partnered with the American Migraine Foundation and Shades for Migraine and is a stakeholder with the Coalition for Headache and Migraine Patients and the Headache and Migraine Policy Forum. Jaime is a member of the Society for Women’s Health Research Interdisciplinary Migraine Network and helped to curate their Migraine Patient Toolkit. She also sits on the Patient Leadership Council with the National Headache Foundation. Through her advocacy work and blog, Jaime’s mission is to make a very invisible disease visible to the rest of the world and validate the real pain of millions. You can find her written work on Migraine.com, Teva’s Life Effects Program sponsored by Healthline Media, NewLifeOutlook.com, HealthCentral.com, and PracticalPainManagement.com.
