My Yoocan Story

Hey everyone! A few days ago, I reached out to an amazing online platform/resource called, Yoocan. They are an amazing online community where you can reach out and get information, and or share your story. And your loved ones can do the same as well. I posted the link to my story at the top of the abler but was asked to share my story by Yoocan officially on here. You can read my story, by clicking the link on the post, or at the top of the blog itself. Yoocan is doing so amazing work, and I am honored to have taken part of it in some small way. -Jessica

The following is very intense and should not be viewed with littles ones in the room. My sister is a 7 year CH warrior. She is the reason why I began my work with the abler. The following was written by her.

Cluster Headaches. Please take a moment and research this condition (quick YouTube and/or Google search). I have been a chronic cluster headache sufferer going on 7 years now. This is THE MOST painful condition known to mankind. This is in no way an exaggeration and can not even remotely be compared to a migraine. As a chronic migraine suffer as well, I can say this without any doubt. I have anywhere from 3 to 5 attacks EVERY day. I am afraid to go to sleep every night because I know this beast will attack without warning and without mercy. I went to school and graduated with my BS from NYU-Poly and went on to receive my MS and graduate as Valedictorian from Full Sail University. This conditio…
