was stuck in a DC-10 with 275 other coughing people on the ground for two hours with a maintenance problem, my nose said the air was in recir mode as it got very stale and I am sure the germs were having a ball, surer than hell, 3 days later break out with the flu, why don't sick people stay home! If the flu isn't bad enough, this triggered clusters in my left side that is unusual for me, I am a right sider and while the pain wasn't as bad as some of my right sided ones I would have gladly traded three times the pain on my right side than have a lessor one on my left side, just haven't learned how to deal with left sided clusters, still the same railroad spike driven into the left eye back out the left ear kind of pain with the left nostral all stuffed up. Oxygen concentrator knocks them out in about 20 minutes, been getting 5-6 headaches a day.

Still wonder why we get clusters? Is it in the nose structure? Too small? Or is it some kind of virus that lingers on? Why can't I enjoy the flu without these damn clusters? Or is some kind of gene out of wack?

Fortunately for my son with Crohn's a new medication was developed and he is on his way to getting his AS degree with plans on getting a BS, only five years behind his peers.

Damn, then my youngest once healthy daughter goes completely haywire, I am told that 1 out of a hundred kids with strep throat, some kind of anti-biodic is generated that crosses the blood brain barrier and attacks the brain causing OCD, depression, and manic behavior, hell to see such a smart young person go haywire at such an early age, worse if it's your own kid, may take years to get her back to near normal.

Something is amiss, maybe more than a blood test should be done before a couple gets married, maybe some chemical in the air, who knows? Just doesn't make any sense that so many people should be put on this earth just to suffer.
