    10 years of prevent success :)

    Anytime Jan through end of Feb depending on airfare. Been down during the summer as well when I felt it was a good idea to do another prevent. Funny how clusters has forced me to vacation on a regular bases and budget for this. I imagine without the condition I would never be able to justify doing this annually and would most likely only vacation well ever 5 years or so. Kind of a blessing in disguise!

    Jawbone cavitation source of cluster headaches

    Never had a Wisdom pulled but do have a root canal and half a dozen old school fillings. Would be awesome if your surgery solves this for you, I am anxious to hear the results. Interestingly this jogged my memory way back to about the age of 14 (three years prior to my first dance with devil). My dentist at the time was trying to convince me that I should have an inch of jawbone taken out on both sides. He explained that I would most likely suffer from massive headaches as I became an adult due to my prominent jawline. Of course there are some antiseptic qualities in many species of shrooms but I cannot imagine how my Jaw would connect to my brains inner working / clock. Good luck though, look forward to hearing back from you!

    I have to add that although I have not been active on the board, I have spread the gospel on the down low since day one. Amazing how amazing the people who suffer our affliction are...vocal or not it takes a special breed to live through this level of trauma. <Thumbs Up> 8-)

    Just remember if you go, you will need a passport. Also, Tortola is a no frills kind of island unless you shell out big bucks to stay in Long Bay which is really the only "resort" kind of place to stay. Something tells me us busters are a tough people though and can handle "roughing it" so to speak. If not comfortable staying in the BVI one can always stay on St. Thomas or St. John and ferry over to Tortola for the day as well. If anyone would like recommendations on cost / logistics / affordable accommodations feel free to PM.

    Common Threads of CH Sufferers

    I was dropped on a coffee table a couple of years prior to my onset. Funny thing is that I slammed the same side of my head that I used to get the clusters on, Temple free fall connecting with the corner of the table. Other than that two concussion (that I know of) playing sports and I am told my older sister dropped me on my head as a baby! Lol! Actually, this may explain quite a few things that have nothing to do with clusters! ;D

    Yeah, sorry about that. As you can see, Tortola is a stones throw from St. Thomas. St. Thomas is very easy to fly into. From there it is a 7 minute cab ride to the ferry dock and then a 45 minute ferry ride to West End Tortola (if you do not stop in St. John on the way). From West End (Sopers Hole) Tortola we normally rent a Jeep and stay up on the North Shore in Cane Garden Bay. Bombas and Little Apple Bay are also north side just over the hill from the Ferry dock.

    Seriously, if you all want to meet and greet on island Iknow a great place with efficiency style accommodations at about $100.00 per night (hard to find on this island) that is right across from one of the nicer beaches. I go anyway so it would be cool to have a few clusterheads down at the same time! 8-)

    I get it Brew, used to hang on CH back when it first fired up. Finding folks who knew what I was going through and actually understood the condition was nothing short of life saving at the time. I have made some life long friends that I still keep in touch with today but again, sometimes (especially when you find your "cure") it does the soul good to step back. I have surprisingly met quite a few in the meantime and still hold true to the brethren that is the cluster sufferer. Peace 8-)

    The story...

    10 years of prevent success :)

    After years of "Lab Rat" ineffective treatment with nasty a$$ side effects and desperations setting in (more so every time) I have found this to be one of those things in life that I cannot afford to not do. Even when money is super tight, I somehow find a way to make this happen and yes, the destination is a very nice side effect of my regime of prevent treatment! Lol!

    Broke it with shrooms way back, prevent it with the rum. I go once per year, have two cups when I arrive then hang on the beach for a week and have two more cups on my way out. Been a spot on reliable way to keep the beast at bay! As a compromise I will meet you there and you can sit on my lap while I work out the details with Bomba! Lol!

    Good point! Alcohol WAS a trigger back when I still suffered. Now this concoction is strictly prevent for me so no worries on any previous triggers. There is also the option of going to see Bomba on any full moon of any month, he has a midnight "tea" that he brew up just for the event. Unfortunately the "Full Moon" party is a bit of a frat style gathering but an option none the less. If you catch him at that shack during the day there is also a possibility that he will make up some tea for you to pick up later. Bomba is very easy going, do not be insulted though if he asks any females to sit on his lap (btw-I recommend you not do this). Lol!

    Speaking from experience, once you find your "cure" walking away for awhile can be a huge part of the healing process. I have taken a 7 year hiatus for personal reasons but have always been here in spirit. I left CH.com many (many) moons ago because I just got tired of the naysayers. Seemed like we had a near perfect solution and many sufferers spent the bulk of their energy trying to convince others as to why they could not fix themselves. I am just now starting to come back into the fold and plan on making myself avail if needed. I can also attest that just because someone leaves the forum does not always mean that they are not helping others in a less public way.

    8-) Yes...yes indeed! I normally head down sometime between mid Jan and late Feb depending on airfare deals. Perhaps we can arrange this for next winter (heck I'd even go back this summer if airfare was right)!
