Quote of the Day 3/25/2014

I know that now if I spike a migraine in the middle of the night or that I’m vomiting or blacking out, that I can go to the ER and I don’t have to worry about it. Whereas before if that happened, it was basically wanting to put an anvil on my head, and I was taking two aspirin, two Tylenol, two this, two that. I was taking like 15 over-the-counter medications a day, probably eating my stomach up.
