Anyone else had a chance to read this article yet? With a lovely 4a.m. wake-up call from the beast, I was startled to see the headline "New Headache Research" on the top right corner of the cover. Interesting reading. They covered clusters quite well, by dispelling a number of the myths that are out there, while not publishing any of the legends we all know to be false about CH. They included some info on the high cost we pay to fight the beast in terms of medication, but little on the psychological effects on us or our families, save one sentence.

'Doctors call clusters "suicide headaches," since some patients have been known to opt for the ultimate remedy.'

Otherwise, seemed to be a very good piece. Just a little nugget of knowledge going out to the average person to let them know we are out there.
