I don't think I'm bi-polar.
I don't think I'm depressed.
I know I have clusters.
When the clusters are active, I'm not a happy person, but I deal with it. One day at a time.
I know depakote has been used by many people for CH. I also know I'm not one of them.
I know many mood disorders, emotional swings and "mental" illnesses are connected with 5-HT (serotonin) which is the same neurotransmitter that many CH drugs either block or mimic.
I don't think all clusterhead are bipolar, nor are all bipolars clusterheads.
I agree with you. There is nothing wrong with being bipolar or depressed or a clusterhead, as long as you're trying to do something about it. It's when you stop trying that you're fucked!
That's what I think.
