Hi Doug,
Iím also a happy male. I also have Cluster Headaches. I kind of know how you feel. I reached a point a couple of months ago when I thought about ending it all. I was in between preventative medications. I was getting a Cluster attack every two hours for several days. I was tired. After one particular nasty headache my wife came in and asked how I was doing. I told her that I was sick and tired of getting Cluster attacks. I told her the next time that a Cluster attack came that I was going to kill myself. She walked away. Five minutes later she returned. She smacked me in the back of the head. She handed me a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles on top and asked me if I was an idiot. She told me that she was tired too and that she really didnít want to attend my funeral just yet. I told her that I didnít like sprinkles on my ice cream and that I wouldnít kill myself.

I guess my point is this. Ice cream and sprinkles are much more inexpensive than getting oneís stomach pumped in a hospital. Perhaps the next time that you or I think about killing ourselves, we could simply come to CH.com and title a post that says (To Whom It May Concern). Inside the post we could type this: ďHi, Iím thinking about killing myself. Iím going to go take a nap now. Iíll come back in an hour or two. If anyone can think of a reason or two as to why it may be more beneficial not to kill myself I would appreciate it. Thanks for your timeĒ.

Although I donít ďknowĒ the people that post to this site. Iím fairly certain that they are some of the kindest people that I have never met.
