The Worst Days

2017-05-11T17:12:02+00:00

The Worst Days So Far August 20, 2014 Erin has experienced the worst few days of her life recently. She has been overly sedated and detests how this feels. Erin hates both the 'Seizure Feeling' and the 'Sedated Feeling" It is horrendous for her, it needs to be resolved now. Erin will no longer be given Midazolam for her seizures.

When I went to the doctor again, I got a [...]

Something happened on the plane which messed with my head, my brain cancer. I was in Dubai. I had a bad headache. I was in severe pain. I was being sick, even drinking water. The pain killers wouldn’t work, but eventually, the ondandanzatron worked [...]
