Been coming here for years. Never felt the need to post. It was enough to know that I was not alone.
Friday I was feeling so good I posted to the Guest Book that I was in between clusters. HA! Be careful what you write, your words will come back to haunt you.
Got 2 shadows and a level 3 cluster on Sunday. And I am just petrified about going through this again. At least this time I am armed with my chiropractor and my l-tyrosine. I am also choosing to defend myself with this community. I need all the armor and weapons against this monster that I can get.
Help me guys. Tell me I can get through this again. Tell me that it won't screw up my new relationship, that it won't screw up my life. Remind me that life is worth living when I am not in pain and I just need to maintain that perspective for as long as the headache lasts.
The best part about the posts I have read is the unconditional sympathy and compassion that this community has for each other. And for that I want to thank you, even though no one has replied yet, even though no one knows who I am. I feel the incredible kinship of our shared fear, our fellowship of pain. That has been enough to sustain me in the past. I hope it is enough for the future. I wish you all joy and PFD.
Taking a moment to revel in my coherence,
