Hi Bob,
Could be something in that. I doubt for all cases, but I'd bet we didn't help ourselves anyway. I quit using drugs over 15 years ago, quit drinking 6 years ago. Started getting clusters 4 years ago. And each year they get worse than the last. They even started about two weeks earlier this year. Course, that really is the only thing that could be worse... longer durations.
So (and sorry Jack if you're out there)...what will happen if I quit smoking! : )
There are some mighty tough people in here Bob who are chronic sufferers, they have got to be the strongest people this world has ever known!
Mine have been "only" 2 month bouts once a year.
Gotta feeling this one's going to be longer.
I've read it often, that the older you are when you get clusters, the more likely they are to become chronic. Not that they WILL become chronic, just more of a chance. I'll admit I sometimes worry about that possibility, but realize I'd be better off just thinking they will go away. And that too does happen. So, lets just say we aren't going to have to go that route : )
Oh wait! : ) How long inbetween cycles?
