  1. I saw a comment by Flash on his Facebook homepage this morning about a new, soon to be published book about us by Dr Joanna Kempner!!


    How a group of regular citizens debilitated by excruciating pain developed their own medicine from home-grown psilocybin mushroomsproducing near-clinical grade protocols, and their fight for recognition in a broken medical system

    oanna Kempner is the premier expert on the social impact of headache diseases. In Psychedelic Outlaws, she follows a group of people called “Clusterbusters,” a community bound by their experience with cluster headache—a neurological disease so excruciating, its pain is often likened to being shot in the head, repeatedly, multiple times per day. Obtaining a diagnosis can take years and treatments often leave patients worse off than they were before. There's a grim reality behind the disease's nickname, suicide headache.

    Kempner’s narrative traces this patient movement to its origins to the extraordinary experiments conducted by a man named “Flash” in Aberdeen, Scotland, and then follows it forward, as the idea of using psychedelics for pain begins to gather in the early days of the internet, and then eventually became a full-fledged effort to bring this knowledge to universities. Their story looks at the politics of pain, why some drugs make it to market when others don’t, and our culture’s complicated history with psychedelics.

  2. Hey @Daveengland!!

    So, I went back and looked at one of your old threads regarding Ketamine.....noticed a comment from you about "shrooms working to relieve the pain".......was this something that you tried, it worked, then stopped working?  Where are you located in the UK?

    Regarding Tom......I just had a chat with him.....sending you a PM...

  3. @Daveengland from what I've observed in the Facebook clusterhead communities, dbs seems to be something that ya'lls health system considers much more often than here in the states......I've seen a few UK clusterheads in those groups who've had or are being considered for dbs....I've seen no one report success I'm sorry to say!

    I've seen several OG posts and comments (Facebook not here) on other threads by Tom in just the past couple of months and that's the first I've seen of him in many years now!!  I was under the impression based on  his comments that he had some kind of blog or YouTube channel going???

  4. G'mornin @Daveengland!!

    It has been a spell seen I've seen you here but do remember some of your old threads.....i looked back at one and see that @ clusterheadachesurvivor aka Tom was the last to comment on that thread......as best I can recall ya'll are the only 2 members here over the 14 years we've been that have had dbs....@bejeebers @CHfather??

  5. Thank ya'll for your comments, kind words, support, and love!!

    Just wanted to provide ya'll with a miraculous update this morning!

    I'll never be able to express adequately my gratitude to my surgical team at the hospital and the entire staff at my rehab facility....I am so blessed to have had them in my corner!!!

    Neck surgery on June 7th, major back surgery on the 10th, and at 11am this morning, June 21st,.......2 freakin weeks later ya'll.....I'm going to walk to our car under my own power, albeit with the aid of a walker, and my Bride is taking me home to our cabin in the woods!!

    Did I mention that I'm blessed beyond belief?!?!???

    My love to all

  7. Thought I'd watched them all but somehow I missed this clusterbusters YouTube video.....until just a few minutes ago!!

    I've had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know almost everyone featured several times over the past 13 years!

    Be forewarned, grab a hanky or some tissues before watching as this video may result in eye leakage...

  8. @Mjedwards409, yes, this regulator will work on a weld ox cylinder (CGA-540 fittings).

    Unsure of the designation of welding vs medical cylinders.....my rig is approximately 9" diameter and 48" tall.

    When I still lived in Texas I had a weld ox supplier who leased tanks with a $50 deposit and $6/mo fee...refills/exchange were $18.  When I moved to Oklahoma several years ago I was unable to find a supplier who leased so had to buy the cylinder for $300 and exchanges are $23.

    Just make sure not to let the supplier know that you intend to breathe it!!

  9. Welcome to the community @xlrsd

    In the conference and events section you'll find info on our last conference which was in Chicago last Sept.

    This year we're having our inaugural European patient conference in Glasgow, Scotland and information will be posted soon in that same section on this year's US conference in Orlando.

  10. Hey ya'll!! 

    Just wanted to introduce @CraigStewartto anyone who might not know him on Facebook.

    He's from NZ and has the coolest accent!  Lol!  I had the pleasure of mentoring Craig with some long distance cultivation tips and busting info a few years back....he also embraced the D3 regimen which worked extremely well for him!!

    He's become quite the D3 advocate and Guru in the Facebook clusterhead communities, including putting up some really good YouTube videos including an  interview with Batch @xxx

    Welcome to the nuthouse mate!!

  11. @Royster, I had a chat with Lady Ainslie Course, our clusterbusters vice president, who will be your host at the conference....she's fairly certain that our founder, Bob Wold, will be bringing some Clustero2kits.....send me a pm with your name and she said she would try to put one back for you!!

  12. @Roysterin my experience over the years, they will be available soon...usually not out of stock for long albeit they are quite expensive when going to other countries but even at $75, it would be worth it for me....been using them for close to 15 years...just retired my 1st a couple years ago!! The best feature for me is it comes with a mouthpiece....having anything touch my face during a hit just adds to the pain but the mouthpiece works great!

    One tip about O2 efficacy.....myself, Spiny and many others have found that incorporating caffeine into the mix enhances the efficacy of O2...I keep cup in the microwave, nuke it as soon as a hit starts, get on the O2 for a min then sip coffee and blow the steam on my affected eye for 30 secs and back on the O2....that coupled with years of busting have resulted in my being able to dispatch the vast majority of my hits to 5 min when a cycle does break thru!
