  1. Yes more rooms have been added so if anyone has problems, let me know. PJ, you do not have to stay at that hotel to attend the conference. They just offer a reduced rate for people going to the conference. Bob
  2. Anyone that is flying into Midway should let us know here. The shuttle is a good idea but a little pricey. if you shuttle from Midway to o'hare you can then take the hotel shuttle to the Sheridan. If anyone needs a ride, let us know and someone WILL come and get you. Post here or PM me. Thanks folks.... Bob
  3. If you are coming to the conference and havent made your reservations, i suggest you do so asap. The cut off is Monday the 15 of August. If you are still considering it but not sure, maybe consider making the reservations and if you need to cancel, you can do that.... See you all soon, Bob
  4. Wow, thank you very much. I would think that the auction would be the way to go. (Unless someone posts here or contacts me/you) We could then post information here and people could advertise among themselves, social media etc and get more people to visit the auction site. Let me know if there is anything we can do. Thanks again very much. It is an incredibly generous offer. Bob
  5. A good fiddle can rock the house.....Just ask Melloncamp and CDB.....and.... Bob
  6. I wouldnt put much stock in anything like this. I think Potter has the right idea Bob
  7. We've talked about this for years and I think this year we're going to do it. It seems that clusters affect a large percentage of guitar players. (We should do a study lol) We had a drummer or two and a few harmonica players but we have a lot of guitarists.... We've talked about getting some together and playing... This year we WILL have a band there so there will be plenty of equipment available. We will also have a professional keyboardist. Maybe we'll cut a record...they still do that right?? LOL So...anyway.... If you're coming and want to bring your acoustic guitar.... Lets
  8. We have a couple of offers of paid registrations to help anyone that would like to come but the cost of registration is holding them back. If this will help, let me know in a PM. There is no formal application for scholarships so just let me know in a PM here. Thank you VERY much to the people that have offered this. Its very thoughtful. Bob Getting close people!!!!!
  9. So far, the odds are that you are not chronic. It takes a year to know for sure. Lithium can help chronics but is mostly useless for episodics. One problem starting lithium now is that that if your cycle ends sometime soon, (even on its own) you may end up being on Lithium much longer than you need to be. Just flat out asking doctors about if you should use mushrooms will almost certainly get you an answer of no. Even from ones that support it. Check out our files section and find some of the reports, research papers etc and bring them in and just ask for an opinion. More often than n
  10. Yes Kyle, there will be documention and printed materials that people can take home and bring to thier doctors for discussing these treatments. Bob
  11. Anyone here have any experience in writing or editing medical research articles? If so,or if you know someone, please let me know in a PM. Thanks Bob
  12. Ok, thanks folks.....I'll get working on it now that I'm back.... Appreciate it ;-) Bob
  13. Thanks everyone, very much. The conference went very well. An excellent weekend for sure. More details on that later...... As to the posters, I should have known......I pair a couple of assistants......one a BREW,ery and someone that goes Kaboom.......and i shouldn't expect things to fall down?? At least my Powerpoint performed without a hitch. Thanks to everyone that helped make for a fabulous weekend. Bob
  14. It is a good idea. Thanks for bringing it up. We have talked about this in the past. We have actually sold a couple of different things over the years... I had begun setting up an account with a company that deals in this sort of thing also. Its always just been a matter of time.... and not having enough Volunteers?? Bob
  15. I know the author. he actually spoke at one of the Clusterbuster conferences. There is a section on treating clusters with psilocybin and LSD. Clusterbusters is mentioned We have auctione off a couple sets at the conferences. Stop in and maybe you can get a deal ;-) Bobw
  16. People have been trying to get me to reform for years now. Maybe this is my opportunity Bob
  17. Very happy for you Ting. Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago in September Bob Wait until you update on Chicago Food!!!
  18. Please read the linked story and feel free to leave a comment. The more interest that is shown in a story, the more likely it is to invite continued coverage and followup stories. Bob
  19. See the link for the complete story http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2011/06/lsd-alleviates-suicide-headaches.html 27 June 2011 LSD Alleviates 'Suicide Headaches' by Kai Kupferschmidt BERLIN—Patients suffering from the agony of cluster headaches will take anything to dull the pain, even LSD, it turns out. Results from a pilot study presented here on Saturday at the International Headache Congress reveal that six patients treated with 2-bromo-LSD, a nonhallucinogenic analog of LSD, showed a significant reduction in cluster headaches per day; some were free of the attacks for
  20. Jerry, Let me clear up a few misconceptions. In the early days, yes i did have a difficult time getting mainstream doctors to listen to the evidence, but, I would consider The Harvard Medical School and the Hannover Medical School, legitimate medical professionals and they have been with us for years. The National Headache Foundation which is one of the country's most prestigious headache/medical organizations, has not only sent us speakers but has helped at out conferences, for years now. Doctors that didnt want to answer our emails in the beginning have come a long way. They are now
  21. This is another sad story that possibly could have been avoided. This sint necessarily a story about clusters as I have personally known people with migraines that have ended their own lives. As to trying to "get the word out" it is something we have considered and thought about for quite a while. We would need to partner with a larger organization such as NIH or the National headache Foundation. It would certainly be expensive but you have to start somewhere. I will be meeting with OUCH US in July and had planned on bringing up this topic for discussion. Bob
  22. The following article touches on many different topics that are you may fiond interesting. There seems to be an increasing pushback on anti-depressants – there’s reason to believe that most of their effect is a gigantic placebo phenomenon, there’s reason to believe they screw up your brain, and there’s also reason to believe the ‘chemical imbalance’ theory of depression has never been proven. This is a review of several recent books that are critical of the pharmaceutical industry: http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2011/jun/23/epidemic-mental-illness-why/ Not that I wanted
  23. If you dont have a pretty clear idea on when your cycles start, I would suggest hanging onto the shrooms (dry, cool,no light) until you feel ANY inkling of an oncoming cycle. Then dose asap. If you know you're due for a cycle in say, the fall, I would dose late summer. Bob
  24. We still have a couple left over from the last raffle. They dont seem to move very well. There will be some expert growers there. You can tell who they are by their blue thumbs and very big grins Thanks VERY much to you and your lovely wife Brew. Looking forward to seeing her creation. That would be very nice. Thank you We get a wide ranging array. From wine to assorted mushroom related items, to wine, to books to hand crafted items to wine to .......did I mention wine seems to be a popular item among bidders lol.... PS I could use some new fishing gear ;-)
