I don't have a partner and I don't want one. It's bad enough living on my own with it.

No it is not if you do you are very lucky and they play a great part in helping you get thru it

Well first and foremost be honest explain what they are and what they do to you explain they will make them feel helpless chances are slim that a relationship will last over 5 years because it truly destroys any normal way of Life

It is not so evident to keep a relation healthy. You need a lot of understanding from your partner.

Most people don't want others seeing them suffer so badly. It's a very private thing.

I think it is difficult to find a partner unless one has the attitude that this pain will not change who he/she is or defeat him/her. It is much easier if one is already in an established relationship with trust and a whole lot of love.

She needs to understand first of all what the disease is and what its symptoms are .... Seeing suddenly a screaming man ... crying ... knocking his head in the wall in a crazy way .... it's not pleasant ... but with a little understanding and love everything goes well

love can overcome everything... is this a serious questionnaire

Just like with any sickness it can be hard. If you find yourself the right person who wants to be there for you and support you it is possible.

It is not difficult. The partner must be understanding with your pain

I had a divorce, in part due to many health issues including cluster headaches. Until my diagnosis, it was hard to take care of myself, let alone ask for understanding! A diagnosis is my best advocate!
