I Have to Honor Your Pain and You Have to Honor Mine

I had the opportunity to sit down with author, Ashley Hattle who just wrote the book, Cluster Headaches: A Guide to Surviving One of the Most Painful Conditions Known to Man.

It’s that simple. It’s not a contest and we should always create a judgment free space!

If you don’t experience cluster headaches or have been newly diagnosed, this is a great guide to understanding this disease.
