Sept or Oct

Visiting Georgia from N.C. for a long weekend. Went out to dinner, returned to my then-girlfriend's apartment and suddenly felt "off". My nose clogged up on the right side, my temple began to ache and I somehow knew I was in for something bad. Did the only thing I could think of....went and laid down on the bed.

2 minutes later my first CH hit. At the time I compared it to having my finger chopped off with an ax when I was a child. Today, I'd say it was maybe a Kip 4.

Lasted about 45 minutes. I swore I could feel my hair hurt (yes, I had a bit back then). Was afraid to move for fear it would exacerbate the agony, but struggled to stay still. Clenched the bedcovers in my hands and squeezed for all I was worth.

This repeated for the next two nights. The following day I drove back to NC. Had about a K1 during the drive, but they disappeared once I returned home. Chalked it up to a probable allergy to something in the air in Georgia.

Next cycle was 2 yrs later, and fit the classic profile almost to a T.
