How many total CH days so far?

Quote Quote Modify Modify

Okay, maybe I have TOO much time on my hands and maybe someone has done this before, but I was wondering approximately how much time we have each spent with the beast.  Obviously, this is not a scientific study and it won't be exact or specify shadow days vs. really bad days.  It is just interesting to me and like I said, it is a slow day around here!
 
For me:
 
2003     September - December     12 weeks=84 days
2002     July - November                16 weeks=112 days
2001     August - September            6 weeks=42 days
2000     June - July                           6 weeks=42 days
1999     March - April                        6 weeks=42 days
1998     Pregnant                             0                    0
1997     July - August                        6 weeks=42 days
 
The beast owes me around 392 days or so, but I'd call it even at a year!

I would like to be able to help but .......
when the cycle started I would go to the Dr. and get prednisone to break the cycle.  
This time I had been on pred. 2 times for 1 week each, and it didnt work.  
so far Im at 3 weeks down and out, I will try to keep track for you and report.

Yeah, what she said.
 
It wouldn't be fair to compare chronics with episodics. The chronics would have more days total and win. Or would that be the chronics would lose.
 
I hate those chronics.

Thanks Thomas!  I feel so welcomed! (Genuine, not sarcasm)
 
Okay, so the general consensus is...
 
I need a hobby?
 
Not a contest, not a study, just wondering on a slow afternoon...

Well lesee, about 23 days this cycle at an average of
2 1/2 a day times 5 minutes (yeah, the O2 is working that well) comes to about 300 minutes using fuzzy math divide by 60 = abot 5 hours so far. BUT when I was chronic it was every day, at least 1 and up to 8 times a day for 1 1/2 years so a conservative estimate would be 1800 hours. Chronic sucks.

Hard to say but it would likely average out to close to twice a year for 4 or 5 weeks for 22 years (sometimes a third times for a week or so)  Odd, I know.

I used to keep a journal -- but it depressed the hell out of me so I quit.
 
Now that I went chronic I really don't want to keep track.
 
Some day in the future I'll be in total remission.  I'll be taking a dirt nap -- but I'll be in remission.

Ok let me think ... ummmm ...mumble, mumble, mumble, carry the 2, ahhh ... figgure, figgure, figgure, and carry the .. Um what was it I was suppose to carry?  Kerap!  Now I lost count ...

Thanks everyone!  It is really interesting to me how very different cycles can be and how strong we all are in dealing with this.  Especially all the chronics.
 
Paige - I'm thinking scrapbooking or crank calling...
 
Linda H - Wow, I don't even know what to say except you must be an amazingly strong person and I hope something changes for you soon
 
Chuck - Joe and I haven't laughed out loud like that since... since... the last time we saw YOU!  Of course we weren't laughing with you, but AT you...  laugh
I have to tell you that the picture you have of the "beast" rising up is disgusting... eeewww... accurate... but disgusting
 
On top of needing a hobby, my post was moved.  I hang my head in shame. I'll get the hang of it eventually, but meanwhile you all have to suffer.  Ha.

Karyn, I think your post was moved because DJ thought it was worthy of jump-starting the new topic He created, not because it was in the wrong place!
 
Your post made me at least TRY to quantify what I've been through over the last few years.  The fact that I'm still alive and functioning after all the CH attacks certainly does help my self-confidence about dealing with this in the future. Thanks.

New here!
 
I have been suffering for so long.  After reading this site, I wonder if they are clusters.  My eyes hurt, my sinuses get plugged up, ice helps, and pain killers don't.  I have 3 little kids, and my husband is not all that understanding.  I feel like I have abondened my family.  Last night I went to bed at 6 without dinner.  I got back up again at 8 and the kids were getting ready for bed.  What can I do??  I am now at work and ready to burst into tears!   I have read that clusters come and go throughout the day, I get one and it lasts all day.  Then goes away when I sleep and comes back slowly through the day...by dinner time, I want to cry.  What do you all think?
 
Thanks
