...a big fat lie. Tell them that you are an actor practicing for a death scene in a play. Or maybe it's the part of a genius in the creative throes of discovery. Tell them that you have become so obsorbed with it that you don't give a rusty hoot whether they like it or not because some day soon you will be rich and famous.
Or something other lie :)
Don't worry, however...There will always be something you can do with your life, maybe.
Take me, for instance...I go fishing now and then.
And I don't take pharmaceuticals at all any more. I do take oxygen, which you can take a small cylinder of it with you everywhere you go (except on most airplane flights.) I also take some bizarre treatments -- I use the cayenne pepper up the nose (harsh, but effective) and I rub Tiger Balm on the bottoms of my feet, or I snort ice water, take a hot shower when convenient, use acupressure on certain fingers and earlobes and on the top of my head. I carry acupuncture needles with me wherever I go which I stick into six spots I have learned about on the back of my neck and on places in the hand nearest the headache. And I take Feverfew every day. Also, regular old Excedrin Migraine now and then which only helps to ease the severity sometimes.
Best of all, of course, is the LSD (which I still do not advocate using illegal substances) and it always worked fast and long in the olden days when it was legal.
Or certain mushrooms.
Also, I have tried quitting smoking. But, I started having horrible headaches similar to my Clusters, but they didn't go away for weeks. I finally stole a cigarette from a friend and the second I inhaled the smoke, the headache quit. Go figure.
Some of this late-night post of mine is goofy -- But some of it is serious.
Best of good fortune to you in your well-known misery; You have our utmost sympathy and understanding.
