Just wanted to tell you guys how awesome it is how you support each other! I definitely don't have CH-I had other problems, similar but by no means CH-but I would have given anything for someone to tell me I wasn't crazy before I had my surgery earlier this year!! My outward signs were similar....not knowing what the hell is causing the pain, wondering if it's all in my head(oh that's a pun..haha), thought about 'ending it' all the time, tried a million doctors (one who told me that he didn't want to take xrays because insurance companies don't like tests!! WTF???)who did nothing but treat the symptoms and acted like I was nuts!! And taking all those stupid useless perscriptions!! AAAAGH! I want my friggin money back!! My 'flare ups' or whatever happened on average about twice a week (lasting anywhere from an hour to two or three days)all year round for 14 years...those were my '10's. The rest of the time was spent at about 5 (compared to now). And the real bitch was ya never knew when it was going to hit! One time I paid $75 to see Baryshnikov dance and spent the whole time feeling like The Man in The Iron Mask with watery eyes that were about to explode outta my clogged up face! Do I sound like I'm complaining??? Well..I'm not..it's just nice to know that someone else just might understand the mental strain, etc :) So if anyone's wondering why this non-cluster-head's been hanging around, that's why :) Thanks for listenin'!
