That's what we're here for. We've all been there. I've been chronic for years. It's survivorable. Right now I'm in remission. Two years ago, I was screaming for someone to shoot me. This board helped me keep my sanity when medical science failed. Just hang in here with us.
Bang your head, Grab the O2, grab the imitrex, bang your head some more. Take a long walk off a short pier - Hot shower - Cold shower - Stick your head in the freezer - Ok take your head out of the freezer. I always found that taking a baseball bat to a Pine tree helped. Didn't do the pine tree a lot of good (or the baseball bat) but it took my mind off my head - sure played hell with my arm - had to go to ER with my shoulder one time.
Then come back to the MB and tell what all you did while you were having your "spell" and we'll all laugh about it. We're the only ones who CAN laugh about it because we've all done "dumber" things. Ask Kip about his "rape" incident sometime. We're still trying to adopt the puppies. And the "hot pepper" cream that missed the nose and got on "Mr. Winkey" instead. Oh yes, we've all had our experiences with what you're going through. But we've all survived and you will too. Just hang in there with us.
We DO understand.
