We've still got a long way to go to get recognition of our malady.
I was at the the grocery store this morning. Wearing my OUCH t-shirt as I do every weekend (I've got 4 of them but 2 are mispelled). I notice the clerk reading my shirt. I'm thinking, cool! Then the conversation starts:
"Do you get cluster headaches?"
"Your shirt is mispelled."
"I'm suprised you're not asking what cluster headaches are."
"I know what cluster headaches are, my dad gets them. He won't admit it though. When he gets one I give him my migraine medicine and it helps."
"How often does he get them?"
"He gets ONE every couple of months."
End of conversation.
Still a long way to go.
