fool. Well sometimes I am but not always.

The debate about who's pain is the greatest is important because it is something we all experience.

My wife and my wife's twin both have migraines. In a weak moment I started a conversation with my sister-in-law about my clusters and told her that I now found some medication that works - I guess I was looking for some headache bonding. She replied that, are you kidding, I get migraines and I have never taken any meds. I retreated right there and said no more. She didn't undestand clusters and why should she. I thought to myself , that Janet, if you had these things not only would you be taking meds but you would probably run to the emergency room on occassion ( something I have never done ).

My point is this - if you don't have clusters you could never understand what they are all about and how can we expect anyone to. When we get into this thing about understanding I beleive it is hopeless and counterproductive.

Stoicism and Medication shall prevail.
