If you can not get enough McKenna, then rest assured that this is a normal reaction, and is shared by many others. Most people never recover from such an addiction, and are forced to keep visiting the site to get their "McKenna Fix" everyday. I have also heard that an aspirin may help, but that is unconfirmed.
