... There's this Texan named Red Adair who fights oil well fires, like the ones in Kuwait, with major explosives. It doesn't make sense until you realize that the explosion sucks all the 02 out of the area leaving the buring well without air and *poof* the fire goes out.

(Someone else can investigate the CH/Nitro/O2 angle here.)

Anyway, I have found that, for me, *shock* doses of certain drugs, last time it was Wellbutrin, were part of the holistic approach to abort a mighty CH-cycle. (Nothing near an OD level.) I can't say which element in the therapy worked the magic, or if any had any effect at all. I do know that within a matter of a few days after starting the regimine the cycle was busted.

Sometimes CH-attacks seem like my brain is trying to kill me. Maybe it can be mind over grey matter as part of the solution. Maybe some higher power is to be credited. Maybe the little demons got captured and had to leave for who knows what reason. I believe that there need to be all sorts of magic bones in my CH medicine bag. Psychological warfare, along with spiritual approaches, should be considered, as long as there is a proper medical team involved as well. I'd hate to see someone get hurt because they put all their eggs in one basket.
