Yoke (real spelling of her name is Joke, pronounced Yokah), asked me to post this for her about how she deals with clusters. I think she deserves big applause for her attitude and strength in dealing with what she has to.

Working with CH and its side effects.
I usually have no concentration left after a CH attack or after a severe CPH . I had two severe CPHs at work today each lasting 5 to 10 mins. I also had two short Phantom CH's at scale 5 duration 15 min no sagging or tearing eye just the pain. Normally I leave work to catch up the following day. Today I was on the offensive. I concentrated fully on my work and continued. My colleagues called for compulsory rest regularly for my benefit. I managed to do my work at the same speed and accuracy. I made no mistakes. What happened was a Joke on Joke (Yoke). We had good laughs. I was speaking as if I was drunk. If and when I was doing anything else than computer work I was totally confused. It worked and I had fun because I beat the devil at its own game.
On reflecting I think that I should not worry about my lack of concentration at work and laugh at my lack of concentration in daily events.
