its 50/50 on this subject. I am glad we can agree to disagree on this board without hard feelings. That is what makes this board so wonderful.
I do want to clear one thing up. I believe in disablity, but I have seen it abused. Carl D has other heath problems than clusters and with that combind I am all for it and am glad to see him get it. Margaret who I admire a lot also has good reason for disablity. Claudette I do not know her problems and can not say. I can say that I did not post under her post, because I was not answering her post, but was voicing my opinion on clusters and disablity alone. I am sorry if she feels I attacted her. I was not attacking anyone by my above post.
I being chronic, and having as many as five clusters a day for years without medication, feel that clusters alone, with no other heath problem is just not a good reason. No body knew anything to help clusters for years, now there is imitrex and so much other medication out there for us to use and try. I found what helps me in the last year. I agree with orian that these are very very painful. I just refuse to let them run my life, the day I say I can not work and can't do everyday things,then I lose. So I don't believe in disablity just for clusters.
Thank each one of you for posting and I respect each one of your post weather you agree or disagree. Each one of you made good points and the posts were great. Thank you all! I wish you all a pain free day.
