New board specifically for supporters!
« on: Feb 14th, 2002, 10:50pm »

So many people have asked previously about adding a special section specifically for those who have to put up with us clusterheads, our supporters.
 
If you support a husband, wife, son, daughter, loved one, friend, co-worker who had clusters, this section is for you!

oh - VERY COOL, DJ!!!  Thank you SO much for doing this for us!!  K, no peeking - us supporters might say nasty things about youse guys in here.  Again, DJ - this is awesome that you did this.  This totally rocks.  And, one good thing about the new board is that it's REALLY nice to see the webmaster posting again.  You better be careful, dude or folks are gonna start calling you a ClusterGod again.  Tongue Cool

Isn't it AWESOME that DJ has done this for us? I think we're making history here, gang.  
 
I think it's also important to remind the supporters out there about the Family Services Team at the OUCH website too.  Here's a link to our pages there:
 
http://www.clusterheadaches.org/family/index.htm
 
Hmmm....this is so cool to have our own little area now.  I just feel like nesting, now!  We'll have to get some nice plants and do some feng shui to make it all comfy in here.  We'll get some comfy couches, some punching bags and tons of kleenex.  I think we'll get a dart board too.  We can hang pictures of Hub and Jackie Boyd up there for practice.  
 
Yep, this works.  Thanks, DJ.

Well, I'm glad SOMEBODY finally asked! She's a supporter gorilla, he's a gorilla clusterhead.  She's giving him a neck massage and trying to keep him calm through the attack.  She's a good little supporter.
 
What did YOU think they were doing?  I think you've lived in the Canadian boonies too long honey.  We gotta get you out here to the big city.  You've a dirty little mind, Mrs. Roadknight.

Just when I thought it was good, it got better.
 
This is a great idea, a great place to be and we have a great coach for our little rooting team here.  Only, why are your stars green, Margi?  Too busy to polish them?  Whats a girl gonna do!

Dear Rach,
 
it is nice the cluster supportgroup is so appreciated. However...
 
If you check you'll see that many of the people who post here are not in cycle/have no partners etc. in cycle. They don't need to come here. Yet here they are to support others through agony.
 
And though DJ and Margi deserve all you said in praise, it might be an even better  idea to give some support now, before it is August, share your knowledge, share your compassion.
 
Thanks for listening,
Ave

Hey everyone.
 
I'm the wife of a cluster headache sufferer and was looking for a place to interact with other supporters.  My husband has had chronic clusters for 3 years now.  Just wondered if I could join up with you guys.  It is SO COOL to see a website with a place for supporters to message.
 
Thanks for being here.

Hi Jenny - Welcome!  Smiley
 
Pull up a chair and read everything you can find that's been compiled here for sufferers and supporters.  We're here to help.  Check out our Family Services Team at the OUCH website, in the menus above the map.

CryHelp!  My husband was just diagnosed with Cluster Headaches.  It was a guess on the doctors part.   So please those of you that know could you answer the following questions.  Do they occur at anytime of day and sometimes many times.  Do they stop only with pain medication.  Does it take several doses to make them stop.  Does anyone you know have the headaches without the other symptoms?  Do they just start out of no where.  This whole mess started for us 8 days ago.  Everything I have read doesn't seem to fit the Headache profile that my husband has.  If you know the answer please help ???

Hey, I think you came to the right place if your husband's doctor suspects he has clusters.
I'll share my experience with you, and answer your questions according to what I've found to be true.  (I'm the wife of a c.head too.)
 
Yes, they can occur at any time of the day or night.  However, they don't usually respond to "traditional" headache medications.  And after a while they would probably have some sort of pattern.  Does he just have them at night?  Or a certain time of day?  My husband is a chronic sufferer, and he is in the 4th year of his cycle.  
 
What is your husband's headache profile?  That might make it easier for the people here to answer the questions you have.
 
Hang in there...there is hope.

Greetings to all supporters from New Zealand.  
Great to have this site.
I don't have much to support with, but find that living day at a time is too long - minute at a time seems to work best, that way we get a few good minutes in every day even if they're bad days.
 
It's easy to get lost in the doom and despair and miss the odd moment of happiness, and they do occur!
 
In the midst of all this anguish, a strange thing happened. A horse, long abused by its owners arrived at our place to use the paddock by the house. He was dropped off there and no-one came back to check on him.A bit of a farmer in my past, I couldn't ignore this poor fellow, and took time to check him out. He'd been bitten all over by a particulary nasty stallion, had been beaten mercilessly, and was to be fattened for dog food!!
 
NO!!!! Off to the vet - (more medical expenses?) wormed him and fed him regularly. Three days later he seemed to snap out of his misery and decided that not all humans were a bad lot. Our daughter arrived and bathed him, and after that, he wouldn't leave me alone. I call him Follow now as he had no name, and this is what he does.
 
Turns out he's a thorobred and had fallen on hard times when a teenage owner left for education. He passed into cruel hands and ended up with us.  
 
It's strange how it has given us something new and exciting to focus on. It'll be summer B4 I can ride him, he's so thin, but he'll bring us moments of joy in the summer. It was good to do something for him and see a result. He's definitely getting fatter.
 
Funny how things come along at times when you need them to?
 
Even if you're not loooking for them.
 
This site is good! I'm a freelance writer, so if I can be of any assistance, just let me know.
 
Kind thoughts;
Love, peace, health and happiness always. Kaos

Thank you Kaos, for posting such a touching story.  My father always said God will give us something, when we most need it, to help us remember what is really important and where we are supposed to place our focus in life.  I would say then that God is blessing you through Follow.
 
PFDAN!
