Reading Lonnie's post got me to thinking again (sorry) that of all the Clusterheads I've met -- other than on this site, anyway -- none of them are still married to the spouse they had when they began the clusters.
Except for me :)
But now, my wife is in her 20th year of dealing with my headaches and her 6th year of dealing with breast cancer. She needs me to be at my best, which I'm not as long as I'm doing this head thing.
So, I've decided to have a head replacement operation. I think it should work. But I am concerned about the new head they might give me. I mean, when I get home from the hospital, will she recognize me? And do you think they might give me a younger head with good looks and some real, working brains for a change?
Also, it had better be a head that they've checked for clusters...I would sue if they replaced mine with a head from someone on this board.
Yes, I have checked the box on my drivers license that allows me to donate organs. But I have made it clear that they are not to transplant my head onto some poor unfortunate who has never had a CH. I wouldn't wish that on anyone but the demon who invented these things.
If any of you have tried this operation I would appreciate any insight you might have, especially whether it helped with the headaches.
[My neurologist mentioned to me that his Clusterhead patients seem to have a greater sense of humor than the average human. I felt like slugging him.]
