Howzit guys,
I'm 27 next month,and I think (hope) I just finished my second cycle today.I've found a lot of these posts reflecting my own thoughts and experiences,especially those regarding how other people view us.I constantly feel like a wussy,like I should just suck it up,and not complain.Whenever people ask me what's wrong with me during an attack,they just say "oh,a headache.gee,I had one last week,take an aspirin." When you point out that CH is not a normal headache,they just look at you like you're blowing it out of proportion.Makes you wish sometimes that THEY could have an episode,just once,so that they could then be more informed..
Nasty thought,I know.I just feel so frustrated sometimes,but then I don't have to tell you guys,right?

Best wishes to you all.
