I've had clusters since I was 19 (32 now), and almost as bad as the pain itself is the lack of understanding about the beasties, even from many doctors. I can't tell you how many times I've almost lost it when someone said "Oh, yeah, I know how you feel - I had a really bad headache the other day. I was really stressed out at work". Might as well say "Dude, I know how it must've been for you to have your arms torn off by that threshing machine; I got a paper cut last week".
At any rate, it's a tremendous comfort to have this web-page and message board. I look forward to learning more about the headaches and the folks who suffer from them. I'm generally shy, but I can already tell I'd like to shake hands with & hug anybody who cares enough to post here. I'll do my best to help whenever I can, too. So thanks for being here.
