My doc has me on this regimine to curtail each and every CH-attack BEFORE it gets out of hand. The theory is that once the CH-attack cycle gets going on its own the momentum builds, the stress and fatigue builds, the depression kicks in and then its a real mess to clean up.
Over the past two months I've had only 2-3 attacks per week, on average. Considering that my life is currently about as stressful as you can imagine that is really good. I know that you discount stress as a trigger, but for me it is one sure fire way to bring one on.
I am fortunate to have been able to afford the insurance to pay for the meds, so far. My divorce will be final in a couple of weeks and I'm not sure what my insurance situation will be after that. I'm looking around for a new insurance plan now. If you have any suggestions for an insurance company that is hip to the real problems encountered by a CH insurred, I'm sure we would all like to know.
