Over the months, we've had several cranks here, your first post looked like one of them.
You do have our support here. Many of us have wished to "end it all" at one time or another. But (speaking for myself here) life is too precious to cut it short. The CH attacks are a pain in the ass, and diminish quality of life while you are having them... but I enjoy the time (which is most of the time) that I'm pain free.
Do you have a significant other, children, grand children, or other family that would suffer if you were not around? I do! My disabled wife would likely have to go live with someone, she'd lose the house, our kids would be removed from the home and be placed in foster homes. No way would I do that.
Then something could go wrong too. I personally know of nine people who were shot in the head (four intentional). Of those nine people, two died... two recovered... and five are permanently disabled. Not very good odds... cause being a permanently brain damaged vegetable is much worse than CH (in my opinion).
If you believe in God, he won't be happy with you either.
What treatments have you tried for your CH attacks? Any verapamil, lithium, O2, Imitrex?
Plaease stay around for a while. We can help you get through this one.
