I'm not exactly a rookie here. I've had CH for 10 years now. I've come to a crossroads and decided to see what people were saying. I don't see why using a different name is such a big deal. I don't what kinds of things people have done in the past, but if you look at the questions I asked they are all relevant. If my questions had been sketchy or irrelevant I would understand, but what's the big issue. I'm just like everyone else. I'm looking for answers that no one has. What works for some, doesn't work for others. Some people are affected on the left side, some on the right. Some people are chronic, some are episodic. There is no exact science here to begin with, so all this research is helpfull, but not necessarily relevant for me. I'm not here to make trouble or enemies. I didn't think people would react so strongly to me having used different names. Had I known, I never would have done it in the first place. If you ask me, I sense an elitist attitude here. I haven't been here long and those of you who have seem to have rules that are unknown to newbies. Thses rules aren't in writing so if one is broken, people should at least be given the benefit of the doubt. I hope you're willing to forgive and forget. At the end of the day I still suffer just like all of you. I've never even met another CH sufferer.
