Hi Bryan, I have been where you are. I lost my husbands love also, I guess he got tired of to many not to night I have a headache. I lost a few jobs ect.. Not only did my friends and family think I was nuts but Doctors too. I found this site and through it I have found ways to cope. I have found the right medication here. The best thing I found were people who understood. They have become dear friend. Friends I do not want to live with out.
Bryan read every thing on this site. I am chronic have been for 20 years when I came here I was having as many as eight a day just like you. I did try to kill myself. I sure am glad I didn't I am down to about four clusters a week now. I take Neurontin and Calan every day and I use imitrex injections for the clusters I get. I am not a doctor. I am not saying this will work for you. But check out the drugs people use that have helped them and ask your doctor about them.
A lot of people fear sleep. I use to, but I found out without sleep fighting the demon was harder. I found they come any way so I now sleep. In between them I enjoy as much as I can. I got CH and there is nothing I can do about it, so I go on as best I can. People who do not understand my pain it is there problem not mine. I learned not to care what they think. When I have a cluster I excuse myself and deal when its over I return. It is all I can do.
Please do not give up we are here and we do care.
