Hello guys I just wanted to say that I’m so very happy to have found this website! Its nice to know that in this very small community of us who share this pain, there is a place for us to chat and help each other. I have been walking hand and hand with the beast for 8 years now, with my first cycle (at age 17) lasting a little over a year. I am 25 years old and am currently in my 3rd cycle and I’m not sure how to say it but this time almost broke me.. the sleeping 2 hours a day with the headaches switching from the right to the left side continuously have if 8 plus headaches a day, the nausea, and the fluctuation of aggression and depression you could say. I don’t mean to bore you all with my post just thought I’d share a bit about myself being as I’m new to the forum. Luckily i found out about cluster busters and I feel relieved to know I’m not alone because no matter how much friends and family try to understand, they will never understand how much it truly hurts us. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
