April 30, 2015 Happy 15th birthday Erin. I know this is kind of early but I want to be first. You're actually 15 today, I can't believe how fast everything went.

The Beginning When I was 11, I started getting headaches and vomiting. I thought it would just go away in time but it didn’t. People just said it’s probably just my hormones because of my age and that I’m a girl. But it got worse so I went to a doctor and he gave me painkillers that didn’t work.

The pain killers wouldn’t work, but eventually, the ondandanzatron worked [...]
