There's a lot of clusterheads out there right now afraid to go to sleep. They know that as soon as REM sleep sets in, the devil will wake them and say "Here we go again" and it's off to the races. It's been a long time since I've been in a cycle but not so long that I can't remember fearing sleep. If you don't get enough sleep the pains come more often and stronger and the more the pain comes the less sleep you get. Round and round you go. I did find that if I fell asleep in a sitting position the clusters would still wake me but it would earlier in the attack and was easier to fight it if caught in time.
