I've been a clusterhead supporter for 16 years now. I FULLY understand what Mike goes through. No, I've never phsycially felt that pain, but I am here to tell you that emotionally, I have.
Supporters feel cluster pain in their hearts. What we go through watching our loved ones get tortured leaves us with the feeling of sheer and utter helplessness. We get angry. We get frustrated. We cry. We hurt.
Maverick, please know that there ARE supporters out here who try very hard to understand what you go through. If you don't have support at home, please understand that any one of us here can help you. If you ever need a shoulder, please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, if your wife would ever like a lesson on how to be a supporter, please -- let me teach her.
