NOTHING works for me - I'm frustrated, my husband is frustrated, Friends are frustrated even all my docs are frustrated!!

We took our annual vacation to the Oregon Coast. Every airplane take-off triggered the beasts above "10" everytime. Foolish of all of us to think that being at sea level during daylight savings time (we tried at Christmas too) might bring on relief. No change - but I can say that it is a whole lot easier to deal with a CH sitting on a sand dune looking out over the Pacific. (Just venting, bear with me)

Today was HORRIBLE!! I was awakened about 7:30am with a "10", then another and another - I finally gave in at this point and gave myself my IM injection of phenergan and Nubain. No relief!! Called my neuro and thought about the ER. He said another shot. This one at least took the edge off. After a total of 8CH's and about 1:00pm they were gone. Needless to say I was toast. Then the beasts had the audacity to return around 7:00pm at soccer practice due to the 105 degree heat. I am losing my resolve, my ability to cope, my marriage, my children, my friends etc. etc. There has to be an end in sight, there just has to be!!

Thanks for allowing me to have a "pity party" and unload, you guys are all I've got!! I will always be anxiously waiting your reply! (E-mail works best for me because I don't know how to search the board.)
