There's this guy with no legs who sits in a wheelchair under a tree in the Park outside the Office Building where I work.
He lost his legs in Vietnam.
Every single day he sits under this stupid tree with a stupid cup in his hand and doesn't bother anyone. He just sits there.
Like you - I've been having cluster attacks every 3 or 4 hours around the clock. I don't know why, and I don't really care.
I've grown a bit tired of shooting myself up with Imitrex, so when I get an attack I leave my Office Building and grab 4 quarters and walk around the Building.
I hope like hell that no one bothers me while I'm walking, because I'll probably kill them if they bother me.
Every time I pass by the guy with no legs who is sitting under the tree in a wheelchair I drop a quarter in his cup.
He says, "Thank you," and I grunt and keep walking.
By the time I drop the 4th quarter in his cup, the cluster attack is usually gone.
I have no idea what this freaking Life is for.
Sorry, I hope you feel better soon.
