it is a place where a cluster head and/or their supporter can come and vent, and talk, and support, and empathize, and help another...whether we happen to be nuts about them or not, or whether or not they choose to give us their full birth name and email address when disclosing something very personal, something that is considered taboo by most in this culture at this time. This board is for cluster heads. Period.
For all we know Charlie, Anon could be someone that we know, that we have seen on this board before, someone that we have seen hurting, someone pushed to the edge with pain, someone helping and supporting others...And now she is someone who shared with us what helped her stop this goddamn pain, and exactly how many of us said to her, "Thank you," or "I hope you stay pain free,"? She didn't come here selling anything or insulting any one of us or saying she had found THE cure for clusters. She stopped her pain and she told us how.
Charlie...try to see her post for what it is..a cluster head trying to help the rest of us who still battle this beast day and night..nothing more, nothing less.
Peace and love,
