Some people consider themselves extremely unfortunate to have suffered cancer. Try having cluster headaches and cancer together. Some people are considered unfortunate to have heart disease. Try having heart disease and clusters together. Financial problems and clusters. Marital problems and clusters. Kidneystones during a cluster attack (that's a killer!).
The point is that CH'ers suffer the problems that all other people suffer, but have extremely excrutiating head pain in addition. Clusters do not excuse us from marriage, parenting, paying bills, or any other obligation. It is an additional burden to bear. That is why each of you have my deepest respect, no matter where you are, or what your personality is.
Then we find a place where we try to support and help each other, and some idiot wants to take that away, too. It is just another of life's little tragedies, as one song put it many years ago. I am a quiet and gentle person, so if you see a post in my name of any other nature, know that it is not me. Thank you all for being here three years ago, when I found you. Let's continue that support for anyone else who comes along. If you are new to the board, we have an interloper who does not have the courage to identify himself, but hides behind the names of the regulars here. You can still get help, in spite of this silliness.
