I apologize in advance for a message full of complaints. I am 25yrs old and recently (1 1/2 years ago) discovered the joy of clusters. the first batch lastest on and off for 6 months, then went away. Then they came back and went away. Now, I am in a summer gradute program in French (ie- I signed a contract saying I would comunicate only in French for the 6 weeks I am here) and they are back. I am with other people, trying to study, write papers, and explain why I am constantly with a headache. People do not understand. I cried in classes this week, I am frustrated, angry and tired of the cycles of headaches. And I am one of the 'lucky' one because my cycles seem to like to daylight hours, so I do get some sleep... I cannot concentrate and I cannot function, but how can this be explained? Anyway, it is a comfort, however sad, to know that there are others who understand, so thank you for listening. Maybe now I can sleep!

PS- Has anyone else experienced a red eye during a cycle? It is the same side as the attacks..
