I guess I've been fortunate. My ex husband was and still is my biggest ally when I'm in an episode. If it hadn't been for his love and help during these past 15 years, I'm sure at some point, I would have done something stupid like hammer a nail into my head! I was very up front with my current boyfriend too. I explained CH to him, let him read some stuff on this site and prepared him for what would happen. The first episode happened almost a year after we were together and he went through it with me beautifully.
I would love to say hormones are the culprit but I really doubt it. My episodes are seasonal and can run for two months. I've had them before, during and after my period. I was however PF during my pregnancy, but I could have been between episodes.
I believe hormones are just one of the chemical imbalances that contribute to CH.
