I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to say. The numbers on DJ's weekly poll fluctuate daily as people add their data. Remember, this poll merely asks if they have ever CONSIDERED suicide.
While there are many anecdotal stories about clusterhead suicides, there is no actual data that I'm aware of and the reality is that virtually no-one here can personally attest to any incidence where a clusterhead took their own life (R. Shockly is a possible exception).
Not one of the many neuros and GPs I've seen over the years ever had a patient that committed suicide over CH, to their knowledge. I'm quite certain it happens, but my personal opinion is that the suicide rate among clusterheads is probably lower than that of the general population.
