This is my first post and I'm sure alot of you are going to think I'm nuts.
I haven't had CH's for 12 years, but they have returned with a vengence. I've been in this cycle for a little over a month now and I've found this site and it's members very helpful (water, water, water)
After the first week the CH's were getting up to about 8-9 in intensity. I was going nuts. I began looking on the internet whenever I got one (how I found this site) but could not really concentrate well enough to comprehend what I was seeing. I did save some sites for later perousal.
What I did find was that I could play simple games. I don't mean anything at all complicated that actually takes real concentration. I settled on "Slingo". It is a game available on AOL. It is much like "Bingo" and is a real no brainer. You can play it with one eye when your other one is tearing so bad you can't see. It seems that when i try to concentrate on this it takes the intensity away from the pain (only a 5-6 now) and they go away quicker. I still get 2 or 3 a night, but they are WAY more bearable. I also drink alot of ice water when I get up.
I'm sure that there are simple games on whatever server that you are on and if this helps just one other person, than I'm happy to be "nuts".
Wishing you all a painfree New Year...... Larry
