My head hurts, although there was some marked improvement following the quarterly lsd regimine. ~~~ I still hold fast to my views on the root cause of CH, that being that the pain is a distraction mechanism, little more than a child-brain temper tantrum. ~~~ Today, I use O2 and Imitrex to abort attacks with much success. ~~ Quite frankly, I do not know how to report on the past six months of CH. Overall, I would suggest that there has been a decrease in the frequency and intensity of the attacks, but never a sustained break in which I was able to feel comfortable leaving my meds far away. ~~~ At this point, I will repeat the lsd treatment with hopes of another reduction in the frequency of attacks. I guess that my greatest relief from the psychoactive treatment has been in the reduction of the intensity of individual attacks. Despite nearly continous attacks, the fear of the pain has dimished, which in itself has brought about a reduction in the total CH pain experience. The lsd is perhaps an agent that has allowed me to disassociate the pain from myself. Today, I feel that I am more able to deal directly with the pain process, only occassionally losing control of the pain process and secumbing to the pain itself. ~~~ Perhaps I will try to prepare a more comprehensive report from this chronic's viewpoint. ~~~
