Just want to let a few people know, yes I try to be at my husbands side when he goes through one of his headaches. This is because this is what he wants from me, and I am glad to do it. This is not any easy thing for a spouse to do. I in good conscious would not be able to let him go through these alone, but would respect that, if that is what he wanted. I have got a few e-mails from people stating that they wouldn't want their spouses around them when they get their headaches, and wouldn't want to put their children through watching their parent go through one of these, alls I have to say is to each his own. We are not going to hide the fact that my husband has these terrible headaches from our children. I want them to know that if they are at home a lone with their dad and he gets a headache that they can handle what dad is going through just like if mom was there. If at all possible I want to help eliminate the fear that they might be having. It's not a normal thing for a child to have to see their father banging his head on a wall, but if it happens and I'm not there I don't want it to be the first time that they have ever seen him do it. I guess you might say I am there and my children are also there at times for our own good as much as his. I am sorry to be ragging on, but I am here for support for what I do and not for criticizm.
