Sometimes, we try to explain to someone why we are whimpering, banging our heads against objects, groaning, etc...
In response, they tell us that they know LOTS of people who get migraines and still go about doing their work/life/whatever.
In addition, the amount of money dedicated to migraine research(a LESS painful affliction no matter what you say...I haven't heard of many migraine suicides) is monumental compared to CH research.
So although we want to promote understanding, we're really goddamn tired of hearing the word migraine, and the constant confusion of migraine and CH by non-sufferers. That's the point Jonny is trying to make, in a very brief way. =)
