.. sometimes if I've had attacks at night I've got out of the house to avoid waking my partner and because exercise sometimes helps me a bit, especially if it's cold out. To make sure I don't get mistaken for a wandering junkie, I have a laminated sheet which I keep by the front door with the following written on it. Thankfully, haven't needed it since dosing with shrooms. It may not all be medically accurate, but it gets the message across if needed. I'm not hiding my address or phone details from you guys, but as we all know we do get the occasional weirdo here (me included!) Hope this helps Ann.
My name is Colin Morris
I live at XXXXXXX
My home phone number is XXXXXX
I suffer from a syndrome called Cluster Headache.
This is an extremely debilitating illness caused by a deformity in the hypothalamus region of the brain.
The severity of the pain means that I have trouble communicating during an attack.
My face may look distorted as though I have been physically attacked or assaulted.
Exertion such as fast walking or running helps to alleviate the pressure on the blood vessels in my brain.
Please do not call an ambulance for me, once the attack subsides I will be able to make my own way home.
