I was 15 years old, helping my stepfather build a cabin in Eastern Washington.
One night I was awoken by this intense pain in my head. I could not understand what I had done to feel this pain.

At first I thought I was going to die. It was like no pain I'd ever felt. It only lasted obout 15 minutes, and I thought, Well this must be from something I ate, or something.
Or something I had done to piss GOD off. So I woke the next day, thinking I had a very bad nightmare, HA!!!!!!!, no such luck.
It returned the next night with the same result. I thought WOW!, how long do I have to live with this?
This continued for the next three nights, so I had Butch,(My stepdad), take me home, thinking it had something to do with being away from home.
But NOOOOOOOOO!!!!. The thing hit me at home too. My mom thought I was just whining or whatever, she was an active alchoholic at the time, so she had her own probs to worry about.
Then they stopped after about ten more, all very brief, but intense.
After the first remission I thought HOORAY!!!! this thing is gone. HA!!.Silly me.
Year after year they keep coming back to haunt me, getting worse as I get older.
The first doc I saw was'nt until 1990 or so. It's hard to keep track, I'm sure Y'all relate 100%.

Anyway, as to not bore Y'all too much, I never knew anyone suffered like this, and it rips my heart and soul to shreds to know others experience this "HELL".
This site has opened my eyes to how "Worldwide" this monster is.
I thank all here and even though I'm not religious, I pray for a "CURE" for all of us.............someday.........

If I can do anything to help, please just ask. I'd be enthused to help if I can.
I'm new to the net, so bear with me. And to all that I was rude to on the board in the past, I beg for your forgiveness,and now I realize that I need you all.
No matter what!

Sincerely, Gary Pinney
