This is without question one the longest time I have gone without posting. A few things have changed since then. At least, the longest and most painful cluster cycle has finally ended. Every attack was a 8+ on the Kip Scale. Still not quite sure as to why the cycle was as intense as it was. There was no reason that I could find other than dumb luck. But at least it is over and done with as far as I can tell. The change to nice weather helps every time. Doesn't get rid of it but helps.

The last couple of days I have spent catching up on 3 months of housework. Mostly deep cleaning. I have to watch about the cleaning products odours. Don’t want to go right back into cycle. Another thing I have need to watch for is over-doing it and wear myself out. It happens more times than I want to remember. The body takes a bit to get back into shape. It is similar to the guys who think they play the game of their choice without realizing a decade of more of no exercise might just cause a pulled muscle or two if thy're lucky. If I don't ease myself back into life the clusters take full advantage of my weakness and attack with both feet forward. Sometimes I forget just how much chronic pain takes out of me both, mentally and physically. Not to mention any poor wretch who has the unfortunate luck of being near me.

This post was to let everyone know I am still alive and kicking. Hopefully in the next little while posts will become more frequent and have some actually substance to them. Hope everyone stays in control the their pain.




Paul, hope you're feeling better soon

Glad to hear you are back, hopefully the weather will hold out and you will be in the clear. It was this time last year that my headaches finally broke their cycle and I get them way less frequently, here's to hoping the same happens for you!!
