I think this site is wonderful and over time I think that the help and support that I have had from here has quite litteraly been life saving... Last year when I was in an episode of 18 months with at least 2 or 3 headaches a day, I seriously began to understand the term suicide headaches... It wasn't the pain so much that made me have this thought, so much as the persistence and never ending of it.
eventually they stopped... And being very mindful and respectful to this sites POSTING POLICY for OUCH (UK) clause #5: I ended up trying a substance classified under the misuse of drugs act, now the truth is I can not be sure that it was this substance that stopped the headaches for a period of 6 months, maybe they were due to stop anyway. But what I can be absolutely sure of, is that as a 55 year grandmother and a professional in the addictions field.... I will be trying again! I risk a great deal professionally with this choice, but I am also fortunate, as being in the field so to speak, does mean that I have had access to some very interesting research and researchers, user feedback, knowledge of risks and interesting websites... all of which helped me to make an informed decision about this choice..
as as I say, I will continue to absolutely be mindful of clause 5 in the posting policy, but if people are interested I will post if further dabbles with this are effective or not.
And for those who might disagree with this choice, can I just say, that if somebody told me that stripping all my clothes of, rubbing jelly all over myself and running down the prom 'might' help... After 18 months of persistent cluster attacks on a daily basis, some days 2 or 3 times but some days up to 6.... I'd do it!
