Build a good support group around you. I can't stress how important this is. Without mine I probably would not be here writing this right now. Second find a treatment that works for you that helps lesson the time of the attacks.

Living with cluster headaches is like riding a roller coaster - you just have to ride it as there is no getting off.
Lifestyle requires adaption to ensure that whatever you decide to do you have yourself covered to compensate with possible onslaught of an attack. Don't leave home without your "safety net" medications, don't go anywhere where noise levels may be triggers and don't go anywhere that you can't remove yourself from should an attack come on. This also includes over exercising.
What do you have to do to be happy with cluster headaches?
Who wrote this question? Obviously someone with little knowledge of cluster headaches. Happiness is not a consideration with cluster headaches - it is misery most of the trip. Do more research!!

Once I was finally diagnosed with cluster it was a big relief. Was sick of being treated like a junkie, craving pain mess. Once who have proper treatment in place I believe who you be happy and have a decent quality of life.

Accept it. There is not much happiness with this disease. Make the most of the pain free days.

Being happy under any circumstance is up to the individual. I will admit that this has changed my life in just 5 weeks of 2 to 3 a day, 3 hour torture sessions. I do not take for granted the moments I am without pain. I have developed a sense of urgency I never had before. Just make the most of your good days!

You can be happy only if you decide to keep on living and to share your pain with a partner or the Cluster Headache Support Group or a friend. In isolation depression can easily set in. It is important to wake up everyday and to decide that the day is going to be a good one, that cluster headaches will not take over your life and happiness.

Educate yourself as much as you can. The more you learn about your condition and how it affects you and your life, the less ashamed you'll feel about it. Your biggest fear should be not knowing how to live with it!

Keep hydrated and don't overexert yourself. Be aware of and avoid triggers. Always have an abortive medication or high-flow Oxygen available.

Cluster episodes arise without much warning, and require immediate and total attention.
I have had them while driving with my young children in the car. Pulling over and having children watch their daddy cry is not a pleasant experience. Clusters often settle in to predictable schedules during their episodes. Learn to recognize early symptoms and occurrence intervals, and try to place yourself in a safe atmosphere during the episode.
