  1. Anyone else catch this last nite? Seems that the nat geo film crew made a visit to the clusterbusters conference this past year and included that video footage in this documentary titled "LSD.. the psychedelic revolution"...season 1 episode 3......many familiar faces including our fearless leader Bob W!! DD
  2. So happy to see you're going to attend this inaugural event @Shaun brearley!! I'll never forget my first patient conference in Portland in 2010! Be sure and give my good friend and our vice president of clusterbusters.org, Lady Ainslie, a big hug from me! And BTW, I second the jeebsters notion of your sharing your story if they have openings for speakers dude!! If you'd be up for it I can definitely put Ainslie in touch with ya bud! DD
  3. I'll chime in with a ditto on the need for a neurologist (preferably one who's also a headache specialist) and an MRI!! The thing that stood out to me in your last comment is the length of your 3.5 hour attack last night!! Ima go out on a limb here and assume that you're not using high flow O2 to abort your attacks??? I've experienced those long assed hits before I found out about O2 so I would urge you to push for a script when you get in to see a neuro doc!! Dallas Denny
  4. Congratulations, Bob Wold! There was never a more deserving recipient of the National Headache Foundation Advocate award.
  5. Hey ya'll!! Been a minute since I've posted!! It's been a hectic few months since my Dad's passing but things are finally starting to slow down so hope to have a little more time for the forum!! Had hoped to be in Chi Town today, (hung over from last nites presidents reception and shenanigans that inevitably follow), but couldn't get the stars to align so just want to wish everyone safe travels and a great conference experience!! DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT participate in the chip challenge if invited!! Lmao!! DD
  6. @CHfather Regrettably, it's gonna be a no for me this year...just too many scheduling conflicts with the business of settling my Dad's estate.....hopefully next year!! DD
  7. Thought this might interest those of ya that incorporate energy shots with O2 to abort.....a good clusterhead buddy came for a visit this weekend and told me about these.....called Pure Kick and available here in okieland at Dollar General, 6 pkts for a buck!!! Charles just mixes one in a bathroom sized Dixie cup and keeps it in the fridge....tosses it, hits the O2, aborts, and mixes another shot before he goes back to bed and sez they work just as well as the 99 cent shots that DG carries! DD
  8. They just need to add a feature that let's them record what your minds eye is seeing.....hell, I want a recording of my open eye visuals as well!!! Be cool to be able to watch in VR on occulus without the bodyload of an actual journey!!
  9. Nice to see you here and thanks for posting @CraigStewart.......well done my friend! Dallas Denny
  10. Good call jeebster!! Jerry is indeed an honorary clusterhead!! DD
  11. Happy New Year ya'll! Hope everyone enjoyed the celebration......meh, I turned off the tube, put on my jammies, and went to bed at 8:30! So , I ran across this poem by our very own @Fast Eddie ....I'm fairly certain it's posted here but it's been a long time.....I first heard it at either the Portland conference in 2010 or Las Vegas in 2012 when Eddie recited it....great poem by a great guy! ‘We call each other clusterheads" by Eddie Langford There are many types of headaches I'm sure you've had your share From stress and strains and migraines To a sinus one here and there But let me tell you about one friend That puts them all to shame This headache is a demon And a cluster is it's name To see a full blown cluster Is a very scary sight It can happen in a moments time No matter day or night It is the worst pain known to man It will put us on our knees We pray someone will knock us out And give us some relief We call the start a shadow A sensation in the brain That says "the demons coming back" To taunt us once again The brain turns into cornmeal mush The eyeball starts exploding We moan and cry and rock our heads There’s no doubt how bad we're hurting We call each other clusterheads Our tiny little crew Of others who are just like us Who know what we go through So please don't say you understand Just what we're going through Unless you are a clusterhead You haven't got a clue DD
  12. And then there's Snake Oil Willie..."I don't look good naked anymore"... https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=OOgd9hitEAE&feature=share
  13. Hot damn! This has turned into one hell of a thread ya'll!! These cuts were the 3 that I had the most requests for when I was still performing....still usually the 1st three I do when we crank up the karaoke system....
  14. Happy to see your post Shaun!! As I've said on many occasions here over the years, "One more cluster soul out of the darkness and into the light!" DD
  15. Appreciate all the good wishes ya'll! Got the MRI and follow up visit with the doc....left feeling pretty damned confused!! Said MRI indicated surgery was needed but because my pain level has reduced significantly and that since I'm in fairly good physical shape otherwise, along with the risks involved by surgery his advice was to take it easy and come back in if the pain becomes unbearable again.... Feeling kinda anxious about the whole deal but really can't afford to go see another doc for a 2nd opinion right now so I reckon I'll just keep on keeping on! DD
  16. Welcome to the community @CursedEyeball! Spiny has covered all the bases but I'll double down on her O2 and vitamin D3 anti inflammatory regimen recommendation!! Dallas Denny
  17. This chick nails JP's "Unwed Fathers"....and the pedal steel is awesome!@
  18. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes...
  19. Welcome to the community @Kprice, sorry you needed to join us! I've been around these online cluster support communities for 15+ years and I can't recall ever seeing the symptoms you've described! There has been evidence of triptans causing rebound headaches and many folks subscribe to the school of thought that the can extend cycles. Since you're new here I would urge you to look into the vitamin D3 anti inflammatory regimen in our clusterbusters files section! It works very well for many folks and should lessen the number and severity of individual hits at the very least! Dallas Denny
