One year ago today, my biggest supporter died. When I think of what my headaches put HIM through, I'm amazed he stayed with me for 11 years.
He broke up his welding duo so I could have a larger tank as a back-up and always made sure all the tanks were full. When I discovered coffee helped a little, the coffee pot was always clean and ready to go.
Many is the nights before I had 02, that he'd get up and drive me around at 3:00 a.m. so I could hang my head out the window getting the rush of air needed and many more are the times he sat in a chair with his head in his hands because he couldn't do anyting else for me and just had to wait it out while I, in another room, screamed or paced or banged my head.
He never once complained about broken dates, leaving a restaurant in the middle of dinner or having to make excuses when we were at someones house and had to leave really quick.

After all the negative things about these headaches, I'd sure like to hear some stories about your supporters.
And lets all give thanks and apreciation for them.
