Newsweek, back in January, had an cover-article on headache. It had only a couple of sentences about clusters, but one of them did point out that cluster pain is the most severe sustained pain that a human being has to endure. Yet, you canít get a doctor to prescribe Stadol because itís only for severe pain! Thatís pretty fucking ironic! The only way to get Stadol is to be in severe pain, but, if youíre in severe pain, you canít get Stadol. Itís still another version of Catch-22: the only way to get out of combat is to be crazy; but being crazy wonít get you *out* of combat, because youíd have to be crazy to want to be *in* combat.
