Todd, I'm not here for, nor do I have the time to get into a battle of finding quotes to site with you. You made my point for me. We can go back and forth all day, without accomplishing anything, until one or both of needs to stop due to our cycles, (I'm in mine, I pray that you are pain free). I have been unfortunate enough to suffer from migraines all my life, as long as I can remember. I even had a migraine that lasted 3 1/2 months, without a repreve of one day or even one hour! I was diagnosed this year with having CHs also, in fact, I resigned my teaching position in June because I couldn't teach thrid graders and get an attack at the same time. I couldn't do it, and it really saddened me. Because of my history, I deal with pain differently than most people. At the first sign of an attack, I try to force myself to go to sleep. Sometimes I wake up crying from the pain, sometimes I don't. But finally, my point is, all the citations and quotes always contain, "almost", "most", suffers, etc. There is no definative "typical" sufferer. We are all "a-typical", in someway or another. People find there own ways of dealing.
