Your idea sounds plausable until you throw in the Y factor. Y=self awareness, if you become able to control the depression and don't allow your mindset to fall into that self feeding trap you mentioned all you have left is Y instead of Why me?
I use to get down because I constantly saught a chemical abatment for this condition which seems to elude almost every medical preventitive.
After many years of going to the Why me, what did I do to deserve this, I can't take much more place, I had to face the fact that the emotions of the syndrome are just about as prevasive as the condition itself. Once I realized that and found I could survive with out the pain meds and have a better quality of life in the process it changed my whole outlook.
It's a given in my case that I'm going to have 7 or 8 attacks a day so when they fall short of that mark it makes for an extra pleasent day. There by making me feel better mentally instead of making me more depressed.
so I cut the fuel off for self distructive thinking and end the X factor. When the headache is done its all over, not having to wait until the Drugs wear off, or even more involved is there affect on your ability to think absolutely clear. Just a thought, Y alone is self awareness,X alone is perpetual feeding of a downward spiral. X+Y=Stability in the face of adversity. Sailpappy
