Damned Brain Eels

This is one of the five pieces I created in an attempt to go some way to expressing what it's like to live with migraine and cluster headache.

This image pretty much sums up how it feels to have your head constantly scrambled, and your brain turned to mush. Nothing seems real, and, at times, you can end up feeling less than human. But, those eels, they keep on squirming.

This image started life as a simple doodle which turned into something pretty self explanatory. I hope.

Thing is, when your head hurts -all- the time you're bound to get a little down. It's a tricky business clawing your way back up all the time.

This is one of the five pieces I created in an attempt to go some way to expressing what it's like to live with migraine and cluster headache.

This image started life as a sketch following a cluster headache attack a few years back. It took me quite a while to get back up and about again following that particular beauty, so I spent a lot of time resting and sketching.

Oh, and a lot of time being sat on by cats. -__-'

When you name your demon, you can begin to fight it. The neurologists at my local hospital did just that, categorizing my headaches into eight definable monsters. They range from: Cluster Headaches, Disabling Migraines, Painless Auras to Blindness and Daily Headaches.

If you squint really hard. You can just about read the others...

Crown of Glass

The pain behind my eye never goes away. It started after my first cluster headache attack, and it hasn't switched off since. It feels like a piece of glass is stuck in there and, every moment of the day, it's cutting away behind my eye.
