Completely Tired

Saturday, November 13, 2004

I can feel the presence of my upcoming attack. Make it stop. No matter how much I beg I know it won't stop. When I look in the mirror I seem far too old, especially in my eyes. Even before I was officially diagnosed, nurses could see how much I was hurting despite not showing the pain outwardly. Dr.'s on the other hand.. well that is an entirely different story. After all, clusters tend to only show up on P.E.T. scans and only during an attack. Try scheduling that one.

Times like these I wish I could disappear. Don't know where I would head but at least the clusters would only affect me and not the ones around me. No sense having everyone miserable. I'm miserable enough that my family and friends have not visited me in over a year. Now that is a long time. Maybe they should try the 3 years I have had with this pain. Or feel what it is like just once so they could understand a bit better.

Anyways wish me luck on the long night(s)/day(s) ahead.


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.*
