not enough hours in the day to have 20 cluster headaches? gosh! silly me! then I must be out of my mind being here. I'll just tell the internist and 2 neurologists that they're wrong. and you don't mean to diminish my pain? please! how dare you tell me it's not possible to have 20 clusters in a day? maybe not the clusters you have...maybe yours are longer. are you having a difficult time believing me? tough! I have 5 to 10 minutes between h/a - not even enough time to take a shower, much less sleep or eat.
and, golly jeepers, maybe I really AM a fraud then!
and to whoever the hell wrote to me "get off the fucking board, bitch!" - I feel sorry for you because apparently you have the need to be the ONLY person who is in pain.
I AM truly offended by several of you. Perhaps you're really trying to help...it doesn't seem like it, though. I feel attacked.
I came to this message board for support because I don't get it from coworkers, family or friends. I came to this board because I needed support, not because I needed to hear (for the billionth time) that "it's not possible".
I have come back from near death twice in my life. I can do anything I set my mind to. I can get dressed with a KIP 6 or 7 - so maybe I forget my underwear, but still, I'm dressed.
