    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    back to check in after a long time. nothing has changed really I have managed to get the shrooms but they seem to be doing very little. unless ya call 2 nights out of 7 sleepin thru relief. stopped them too at one point and went into a 12 day cycle straight from hell. finally layin on the floor one night with my o2 mask in one hand and a bag of shrooms in the other eatin them right from the bag in did stop the streak for 24 to 36 hours but that's as long as the relief lasts. not a doc in eastern Canada that knows half as much about clusters as ive learned on my own. its tough...and takin its toll...little over 3 years now. my o2 tank is the only reason im still alive.

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    i had been doin the seeds about 8 months and had ordered several times so wasnt just a bad batch. no denying they sure did help in the beginning. they made me sick to my stomach and just wierd in general. basically just sat on edge of bed and held my stomach for hours. after awhile i just started knockin myself out with sleep meds soon as i took the seeds. funny but thats about the same time they stopped workin. i tried hard to get some shrooms and bust with them just couldnt get any. ive done them before and actually found them quite pleasant lol. it aint the buzz that turned me off the seeds. have tried the melatonin didnt seem to help. i drink a lot of energy drinks buy em by the 24. drink one every time i need the o2. not familiar with the d3. ive read the testosterone study and have a doc app next week i think there might be something to that. i take sleep meds and anxiety meds cause about the closest thing to a good cluster is waitin for the next one. im sure many can relate to that. i get most of the winter off work. the clusters were much better when i was workin everyday but that seems to be par for the course too. i seem to be havin harder time shuttin them down now then six months ago and have had a few pop up at times they just never have before over last 2 years. just out of the blue. mine are normally 90 mins exactly after i fall asleep and usually every night. about half the time i can expect anonther either before or after that,and the odd day its just about non stop every 2 or 3 hours. not sure which is harder on me the clusters or the meds but i dont remember driving to work some days. but i wouldnt hardly ever sleep without the meds. theres a phrase something about the devil and the deep blue sea .......

    hey folks...havent been on in a long time just checkin in hopin to learn something new.not much has changed in my world but thank god for my 02 ... and the people on here that pointed me in that direction.stopped the busting with rc seeds about 6 months ago they seemed to be losing their effectiveness. maybe i wasnt takin enough anymore but they made me sick and didnt seem to be workin anymore anyway.my headaches didnt change a bit when i stopped the seeds.i get hit hard and often and havin hard time keepin up with the bills from the meds and 02,even with holding down a full time job.hang in there and everybody take care.

    Weather condition and CH

    not much fun trust me. This is interesting reading,it would be good to know about the Alaska thing. I worked away a couple months last summer.Stayed in one place in a valley about 3 weeks and never had a hit.Then moved about 5 miles away but up on a big mountain and started gettin hit hard 2 out of 3 nights.

    bj you took the words right outa y mouth lol.ive only the optimask couple weeks and was gettin along fine with 15lm prhaps cause i was gettin less with the other mask.maybe in time 15 wouldnt cut it for me either but buddy id be quite happy with my 15 right now.his is 2 days in a row my provider has given me shit for equipment and they are 2 hours away.im on the hunt for a better regulator....and a new head too if i can find one.not sure swappin with anybody on this site would help much tho lol

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    still in a rough patch.backed off to 5 days between busts which was last night.slept 6 hours but it was there as son as i opened my eyes just like it has been for a week to 10 days now.the 02 backed it off for a few mins but it came right back and is still hangin around ben about 4 hours now.never happened before.the majority of my hits have always been at night but gettin them all times of day now.everytime i fall asleep day or night 90 to 120 mins and boom.ive even had 3 just general headaches that after couple hours have moved o one side and turned to a cluster hats never happened before.to top it off yesterday the valve seized on my o2 tank and wouldnt open they delivered another it worked fine til today now the regulator seems not workin right cause the bag is empty after about 3 breaths.this is insane

    Makes perfect sense,Jerry,as always and im gonna try it.Another thing im wondering and may even have read it somewhere,for about 3 days on the weekend i had just a normal headache,not cluster like at all,and had taken 3 or 4 tylenol couple times a day.This brand of tylenol has a small amount of codein in them.Do i remember reading about any opiate possibly blocking the busting effect ? Im hopin so cause i just got hammered 3 times in 9 hours through the night and it would be nice it know it was nothing but my own dumbass fault

    Just warm enough enough to desolve....still cool enough to chug it all at once. Whats your thoughts on busting fri nights and gettin hit hard on monday nights before my tues night bust.Do ya think im just not quite gettin enough on fri to get me through.Only happened 2 weeks in a row could just be a coincidence.But maybe a little extra juice in the punch fri nights wouldnt hurt to try.Ive tried everything else lol.

    Hello

    Oxygen.My doctors had prescribed me everything but.The people on this site likely saved my life by telling me to drop everything i was doing and get oxygen and introducing me to the busting options.Finally after 16 months of pure hell i feel like im inthe drivers seat again.

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    Ive set up tues and fri nights for busting and the only major hits ive had for 2 weeks have been on monday nights.As there is an extra night betwen busts compared to the days between tues and fri im wondering if im just not gettin quite enough fri night to keep the freak calm til tues night.Its possible but its also possible the freak is just being a freak lol. ya been mixing the taurine in with a little strong coffee.If its gonna work im gettin the taurine dosage for about 10 cents compared to 3.50 for an energy shot/drink.Really hopin im not just at low end of my cycle and this is all an illusion,but hell i wil take it,best ive felt in 16 months.

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    I found the taurine in capsule form.Will save me a tonne of money if it works the same that way.Only big hit ive had since the mon after the bust i screwed up 10 days ago was once again last night on a monday night after i busted on fri.Cant complain tho things are improving big time since i started hangin around this crowd lol.
  17. Donnie S

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    I could likely just spoon the taurine into me i doubt it could be worse then the seeds lol.Once again thanks Jerry
  18. Donnie S

    How Many???

    im fairly new to the game but im either chronic or in a cycle goin on 16 months now non stop.Started busting with the rc seeds about a month ago,and along with the 02 and energy shots,things are settling down for sure.

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    well damn i been soakin first then poundin later....still get plenty buzzed tho.So should they be stronger if soaked first,be nice to know before i find out the hard way lol.This mask is the ticket,the one my provider gave me was a joke for anybody supposed to be gettin high rate sraight 02.The taurine stuff in the energy drinks....can that be bought anywhere in pure form,the 5 hour shots up here are about $4 they work but are gonna have me in the poor house buying them

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    tings seemed to e improving somehat after my fourth or fifth bust then last fri i was supposed to bust again.Had them soaked and ready but couldnt get them pounded up right as we was at girlfriends parents cottage and just couldnt make the noise to pound them up so i just swalowd them whole knowing it wasnt the same thing.My fault i should have had that covered. By monday i started gettin hit hard again but busted tues and will again today.Didnt know if just one bust not done right would screw it all up or not but i know now.I do not like doin the seeds and i find a hangover with them.Hioin to try the shrooms instead if i can find them.On the upside my mask arrived today so im hopin that will make a dif too. Thanks for checkin in on me.Before i screwed up that bust i did have 5 good daya in a row and usually 3 days is about as good as it ever got and those were few and far between.

    my tank size is MM.Pretty big one.Not big enough cause i drained it in 12 days lol.

    How Many Ya'll Are Chronic

    My 02 provider cant even get their hands on a regulator that is higher then 15 lpm.When i told her what rate the best results were being obtained from she about fainted and told me icu at a hospital is the only place she knows that can 02 at that rate.Hopefully when my optimask arrives the 15 lpm will at least be more effective then it is now.

    Well your right on about the Nova Scotia weather.They say around here if ya dont like the weather wait 10 mins and its likely to change.I ve had my third busting on the seeds,seems to be helping but they have by no means stopped. As far as a doc goes that knows anything about this thing around here,forget it,the only doc that ive been able to attach to anything concerning clusters in Nova Scotia seems to have relocated to a clinic in Maryland.We are kinda isolated here on the east coast,i would likely have to go to Ontario,which is half way across the country.Would like to try busting with the shrooms instead of seeds but just cant find any.Dunno if im just not doing enough of them or what.About 80ish last couple times,did my third bust fri night and was rolling around the floor at 3am this morn suckin on the 02 mask.Have ordered the optimask but it hasnt arrived yet.And the pressure or shadows on that side of my face have been almost constant for 3 days. I dunno.......

    Are slapbacks generally severe or just several smaller hits? The night after my second busting attempt i woke with by far the worst cluster ive ever had or the worst pain ive ever thought was possible. I had decided to stay at my girlfriends that night and didnt even have my 02. Gotta get a smaller tank i can take with me cause this is like being under house arrest. First trip to see a neurlogist yesterday....no surpsises there.He wanted to put me on verapamil til i showed him the info i had brought on the psychedelic solution.He read it,didnt scoff at it,but obviously couldnt advise me to either.Im pretty sure he didnt know much about cluster headaches.I did a little diggin before i went....he specializes in movement disorders and huntington disease. In an effort to cut down on the dif meds im takin for this and that,and hopin to add something for depression, they prescribed xanax 1mg three times daily. My third bust comin up on saturday,my god i hope something changes soon.Ive had several hits in the last year i rated as 8's and a couple 9's.....but that one couple nights ago takes this shit to a whole new level for me.Cant be sure cause i wasnt home but i cant imagine the 02 doin much for that baby
