I owe you all a progress report. It won't be as explosive as CarlD's - I am only an episodic clusterhead and I didn't have the guts to wait till the shadows turned into proper attacks.
In short, I took the shrooms. Now I am a very serious person, not out for high kicks, or just highs even, but under the expert guidance of pinky and flash I dared to try. (I must also admit I didn't like the experience at all. I like clusters less. Nuff said)
The results were all right though. For three mornings I woke up with a feeling as if something was missing from my right temple. A few light headaches hovered near, but never materialized.
Then things stabilized themselves. Since I have had no shadows, only little bits of them - like an intense but tiny stab, an instant of hypersensitivity, or tears but no pain.
I get the feeling (but is is no more than that) that at the moment I am living through an intense episode,without feeling pain.
To be perfectly honest, I do not KNOW for sure and certain, that there was an episode in the offing that got turned of, or damped down or whatever. I only know that what I experience now, does not even touch the shadows (kip 4-5)I used to have between episodes (and could more or less live with).
Maybe inconclusive... On the other hand, I'll do it again like a shot, whenever the pain comes back.
