I was chronic for almost 20 years, and I was afraid, of sleep, of people thinking I was nuts. I was afraid, of everything. I spent every minute wondering when the next one would hit. I feared the pain. Oh how I fear the pain.
I found that I was making things worst. All the fear made me lose sleep, and energy, and I lost a lot of time. I still fear the pain.
I started living again, and got rid of my fears. In between I make up for that lost hour or so. I sleep when I can so I have the energy to fight the demon. I fear the pain, but I found tools here on ch.com that helped me fight the old demon. Verapmil , and Imitrex. I been here two years and it took over a year researching and reading post and information, before I found the right dose that worked for me. I never gave up.
I been pain free for months now, with only a few attacks breaking through.
The best tool I had was, the friends here that have supported me along the way.
Study and read, and keep your mind open. You will find the tools that will works for you.
