I don't really have much to say so I'll just post a poem that 'spoke' to me in a book I'm currently reading for the 3rd time. It's called "Pain: The Fifth Vital Sign" By Marni Jackson. Learning about the mechanisms of pain is just as important as learning what can be done for clusterheadaches, I think. Anyways heres the poem.

Pain-has an Element of Blank--
It cannot recollect
When it begun-or if there were
A time when it was not--

It has no Future-but itself--
Its Infinite realm contain
Its Past-enlightened to perceive
New Periods-of Pain

-Emily Dickinson

Medical terminology can cause confusion at the best of times. If there is a word you do not understand all you have to do is double-click on it and the definition will appear! Don't forget to drop me a line by email at with your comments, questions‚ recommended resources‚ concerns‚ & especially your experiences with clusters. Or come find me on my Facebook Profile to add me as a Friend. Whether you are a supporter‚ care-giver or sufferer. I would love to hear from you!

*Please do not use this information for self diagnoses. Writing about my experiences with chronic cluster headaches & epilepsy is a good outlet for me. Consult your Dr. with any kind of headache or chronic pain you may have. The 3rd party links on my site I have found to be a good resource to me over the past few years & dearly hope they will benefit you as well.*
