I am on day 11 pain free
You do not know what this means
I do not know what this means
I am freaking out!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not gone this many days in a row without attacks since January of 1998. I have nothing else to attribute this to other than the 2 doses of 'Shrooms I did last month. I was going to do a third dose, when it was brought to my attention that since I had already seen a shift in the cycle (they began to taper off), that a third dose might upset them further. I waited, and after about two weeks, they tapered down to none. I have been PAIN FREE for 11 days, and I have been taking advantage of my time wisely. All I can say is if this continues, I have my life back, and we must demand the government approve research on medicinal mushrooms. Right now that is impossible, since Psilocybin is a controlled substance. If anyone has any questions about 'Shrooms, search the archives for info. I was hesitant to try it, as I have had many 'trips' when I was younger, and the thought of having an attack while tripping out of my mind on hallucinogenics did not sound very appealing. I tried it out of desperation (why not, I have tried everything else under the sun medicinal and home remedies as well). So far, it appears to be working. For that, I am puzzled, yet grateful, and making the most of it.
I shyed away from it for the longest time, but now that I have done it and have seen results, I find the comments made on the medicinal factors of Psilcybin and CH. I guess I need to go back and do my homework some more to know exactly why it works and such before I raise a flag and wave it. I am not doing that right now. I am only sharing my experience, as others have shared thiers. Some may call it a coincidence, but after being chronic for 3 years - I don't think so.
I have been waiting to see what is going on and be sure of what I am saying before I left a post of the aforementioned. I have been lingering in the background watching the board on the slight few occasions I have been online the last two weeks, and have decided it best not to comment on anything that has been going on. I only want to see things get better for us Cluster sufferers, and I want to see more advances in research for Cluster Headaches. I would like to even see research done on medicinal mushrooms and thier effects on CH. Maybe we will stumble upon something that will change the course of things. Even if I stay pain free, I will not go away. I will stick around. If the book sees the public light of day, then CH will no longer be unheard of. If that happens, I will do everything I can to push for more research for CH.
So things are good, the book is (not yet done, drats - but...) almost complete. Will keep you guys posted on when you can get more info and I have my website up.
For now, and for whoever is interested (I know Jonny will be), You can download 4 of my songs from MP3.Com now. I am including a link to them. I recommend that you only download one track at at time, otherwise you might get errors or incomplete downloads. I wrote and performed everything on these tracks on a cheesy 4 track recorder with minimal equipment, but the songs are still there. Lemme know what you think. Maybe this will get the ball rollin' on my music now.
Peace, and love all of you guys,
