Thanks for some of the responses thus far..He is gone to
work so I can be more opened,He is 48..overweight by 50lbs
he smokes,he won't go to his dr,and he is talking of killing
himself:His work is dentistry..the vision problem is affecting
him $$ at work as he has to cancel when the vision goes
and lack of sleep has him shaking so badly..I am scared to death.
Is his brain swelling so badly it is pressing on the nerves to the
eyes?Both his eyes are swollen,the cluster side is almost shut..Heuses
imetrex injections &keeps to the amount allowed..he takes prednisone&lithium also..
but you can only take the prednisone so long, the day after he stops taking it back they come. Please help if you can..I find him hiding from me and our kids,he is usually found in acorner, on his kees, sobbing and screaming into a towel he presses aginst his mouth...I can't watch this big macho man sobbing like a baby,because I know his pain is so bad.Please Spouse or actual cluster sufferers if you can give me some new ideas..on how to help this stubborn man..Sincerely, Nisha
