How do you all live with this? I've been having these ch's for around 8 years now, and they would be gone within two weeks, and while the pain was bad, it didn't stop me from living my life. This bout I'm in now though...I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't think, it's horrid! I'm in my third week now and there's no sign that it's going to be letting up. I'm thankful that I have doctors that are actually trying something now besides motrin, but, I'm on prednisone, Esgic-plus, and inderal, and nothing is helping, they just keep getting worse and I'm having them more and more every day. Yesterday it was five times and today I'm already on my second. I haven't been able to go to school because of these things and I know I've blown my semester. How am I supposed to live my life, go to school, work, anything? I just want to die!!! I'm sorry this post was so long, I just had to get this off my chest. My parents are bugging me to go to school regardless of the ch's, and my girlfriend has been wonderful, I know she's suffering through this with me, but I feel like no one else can possibly understand what it is I'm going through with this. Thank you so much for being here. I don't feel so alone anymore.
