I have been visiting this site for the last few months to read the message board, trying to get any information that may help me. I was diagnosed with CH last year. I also get migraines - sorry if that doesn't sit well with some people but there you are. When I first found this site I actually cried because I thought at last I had found people that knew what I was going through and would care enough to help another human being in pain. The point of this post is that I am REALLY disappointed. In order to find information that may help, visitors have to trawl through the vitriol, spite, nastiness, bitterness and plain rudeness that some CH sufferers think they have the right to inflict on other users of this site. If someone comes here looking for help for migraines, all you have to do is redirect them. If that's too much of an effort for you, then let someone else do it. You complain that migraine sufferers clog up the message board making it difficult to find info on CH. WRONG. Nasty replies from spiteful people clog up the message board. If you suffer from the sort of emotional incontinence that prevents you shrugging your shoulders and looking past 'migraine' posts, then I suggest you need another sort of support group. I came looking for help and found ignorance. I very much doubt that I will be back. Some of you need to look up 'support' in the dictionary.
