These things wipe me out.
Try to eat as many 'carbs' as you can and enjoy.
My boyfriend takes on more chores 'round the appt. when I'm in my cycle.
He loses some sleep too when I wake him with an attack.
He gets my water, ice packs and tissues for me.
Sometimes he just holds my hand if needed.
I know not everyone can take time out of their lives during clusters, but it is important to not overdo it and get help as much as possible.
Another point of view is that after they are done depression sets in which can create fatigue. Again a good, healthy diet can help.
Laughter is great medicine as well. It can be like an adrenaline rush! Anything of that sort will help with the blues.
I personally smoke pot for the nausea.
I don't advocate that tho.
