Positives of Cluster Headaches?

Wednesday, February 23, 2005

Lately‚ I have been thinking alot on how cluster headaches affect every aspect of my life. Then I began to wonder what the positive and negative impacts have been. With the amount of complaining that has been done on this blog the negative are always in the forefront. So I thought I would write a list of ways clusters have changed my life for the better. Yes‚ I said for the better. This list will be for the positives and tomorrows list will be for the negatives. Which I might add was a much easier list to write. Finding the worst in something is always easier‚ isn't it?

The positives clusters have had in my life:

–Found a whole new world of chronic pain sufferers I never even knew existed
–Helped 'weed out' the superficial individuals
–Learned extensively about disorders I have never heard of or would have taken the time to educate myself with.
–Spend more time focusing on & apprecating other sufferers in a similar situation.
–Try to enjoy the little things in life more.
–Read as often as I can now. As compared to turning on the TV.
–Do my best to enjoy the weather even when it causes me pain.
–Moved away from the town Mission.
–Immersed myself in educational books and websites for research
–Try not to dwell on problems which are unsolveable or miniscule in importance
–Found my true love in Mindy.

Basically trying to appreciate the time I have. Do you do the same?

Look‚ I don't want to wax philosophic‚ but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs‚ you've got to jump around a lot‚ for life is the very opposite of death‚ and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully‚ or you‚re not alive.
–Mel Brooks
