I use to stay up all night and only get a few hours of sleep and I found it just made things worst. I finally said this demon is not going to get the best of me. I sleep in between the clusters. I go to bed around 10 when I wake up with a cluster. I go for the imitrex.
Then instead of coffee like I use to want. I fix hot coco. Then I sit on the floor and rock back and forth. I also listen to music wile rocking back and forth. When the pain leaves me I drink my coco and head back to bed with my ice bag. He might be back in a hour but at least I will be rested so I can fight him.
I think when we fear sleep we give in to the demon. We give him what he wants. We are just to tired to fight back without sleep. Thats why it is so hard on people who can't sleep I think.
