Want to Watch?

Tuesday, October 25, 2005

Ever watched a cluster sufferer during an attack? No? Well have I got a treat for you. Clusterbusters.com has been nice enough to post just that. Click on the clusterbuster.com link, and scroll down till you come to a heading titled "Warning" in red letters. The clip is quite graphic in the sense of seeing someone in extreme pain. There is no gore but high intensity pain can be a test of one's stomach. After you have a watch, try to imagine multiple attacks a day for days, weeks, and in some cases years without relief. I hope by sharing this video will help people to understand what sufferers and those around them go through on a regular basis. Comments are always welcome and do not forget to pass the clips around.

The video is available in 2 formats, QuickTime(mov) and windows media player(wmv) and are 6mb and 7.6mb respectively. To save the clips (Recommended) instead of watching directly off the site, with

1. Internet Explorer, "right click and select Save Target As".
2. Firefox, "right click and select Save Link As". This will help make playback as smooth as possible.

The world is quickly bored by the recital of misfortune and willingly avoids the sight of distress.
-W. Somerset Maugham

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 versilleus@gmail.com with your comments, questions‚ recommended resources‚ concerns‚ & especially your experiences with clusters.

*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.*
