The video is hard to watch as you know what people are going through when they have a CH.

Fairly good, but a bit too much of a focus on how bad they are, not really covering preventives although abortives are covered.

Thanks for the warning before I clicked on the link, Mike.

I've tried to watch CH videos on YouTube put up by fellow ClusterHeads but have failed miserably. A couple of moments in and I fall apart completely because it's simply too close to home.

(Don't know how our Supporters put up with us.)

Was having a beer with a ClusterBuddy in a lovely pub here in Cairns when she got hit and I was no more use than a jellyfish on a bicycle.

Let's hope only good comes out of the program,

Brian.

It's hard to see MIke.  I cry a lot of tears for other CHers.

Hi MikeNZ,
I certainly do appreciate a recent article that can raise awareness of the condition, but CH videos are difficult to watch. One of the things that concern me about these videos is the fact that, unfortunately, some viewers get the idea that it's faked or the person is being overly dramatic. (Just read some of the comments--some people are not very nice!)

I personally am not a "screamer" or a "crier" when I have one which means I'm probably in the minority. But when I see these folks in the videos, I know where they are coming from. Not a good place to be!

Thanks for posting Mike....I forced myself to watch and got what I expected....vivid gut wrenching recollections. It seemed too short and choppy...but typical of a 'news segment". Found remarkable the supporter of the first patient participated in the head slapping...I've done same...or worse to myself...but cannot even imagine letting someone else do same...I didn't want anybody in the same room...let alone touching me. Ah well...supporters are GOLD and whatever works for the clusterhead works for me....................

Best

Jon
