I love the cover photo: opiates embedded in chocolate frosting, yummmm.
Congratulations PQ!! I got my copy in the mail today- can’t wait to start reading. =)
Just bought my copy on Amazon. I also pimped you on FB last night.
So cool! Can’t wait to read–congrats!
Congratulations! I, too, am looking forward to reading. Oh, and by the way, how’s the headache?
@Debbi – The headache is still here, but it varies in intensity. It’s been a 1 out of 5 most days, but sometimes it still makes me take a day off.
Read the excerpt you linked on Facebook. It was great, can’t wait to buy the book!
My copy is in transit from Amazon. Can’t wait to get it. Congrats, PQ! If it’s half as good as your first book, it’s a winner.
congratulations! downloaded to my kindle this morning and already started reading. loving the hilarity so far :)
Downloaded it to my Nook first thing this morning! (And was very excited it was available on Nook… it’s been on Amazon pre-order for.ever! I was getting worried!)
Loving it so far, but feeling quite sad for you.

I got mine in the mail today, too. I’ve started reading it and like it. It makes me sad to think you’ve had this headache for so many years. I hate headaches, they suck and I’m sure mine are minor compared to yours.
Thanks for sharing your experience in another book!
Bought it, read it, am now living in terror I’ll be next. ;)
Just got my copy at Barnes & Noble! Excited for another great memoir, half-assed was wonderous ;)

Congrats on the book! Pre-ordered. Devoured. Loved. Happily spreading the word. I think it’s so important for bloggers to support each other.

Congratulations! You’ve worked so hard to get to today- I hope you’re taking a little time to celebrate (even if it’s just in a take a bath and watch a good movie kind of way). WOW. You are officially an author of multiple bookSSS. Plural. That definitely calls for a glass of wine!
congratulations! can’t wait to read it!

Congratulations! Downloaded your book to my Kindle on Tuesday and looking forward to diving in. I am a chronic daily headache sufferer since January 2009… also after having lost weight. Thanks for your encouragement, Jennette!

WAHOO!!! Such an awesome reason to celebrate!
Shipped from Amazon.com. I can’t wait to read your exceptional and witty prose. Congratulations!
Congrats!! That must feel amazing, I have always dreamed of writing a book, although I’m sure it is a lot of work and dedication. Maybe one day.:)
I am reading your book as I sit in the waiting room at Johns Hopkins’ Wilmer Eye Institute. It is helping me better understand what my husband is dealing with as he endures chronic pain and illness that no one can diagnose. It’s been 7 years and I’m pretty sure that he beats you with the number of doctors he’s had. (But definitely the same experiences and outcomes.). I don’t know what you have done without a “me.”. I do everything for him that takes concentration. Anyway, love your book and will pray for you as I’m praying for him.
I loved your first book, and I pre-ordered Chocolate and Vicodin for my Kindle, so I was able to read it last week as soon as it arrived. I have chronic facial pain that is one of the effects of having MS, and reading your story (the arrival of the pain; the visits to the doctor; the gradual recognition that the pain was here to stay; the many visits to specialists; the difficulty in getting doctors to take you seriously; the emergence of a transformed self who can manage the pain and negotiate the medical system) resonated with me very much. At the beginning of the book, I kept wanting to take you aside and tell you all the things that I’ve learned over the years about having chronic pain, so that you could skip some of the steps and reach the point where you could manage the pain successfully. Of course, for your readers who are just beginning the experience of having chronic pain, that is exactly what you are doing for them: showing them the ropes and forging a path through the thicket of pain and its consequences. I’m so glad that your pain is manageable at the moment and I hope that it stays that way. I also wish that medical professionals would read your memoir and others like it and take the lessons to heart about managing pain patients! Thank you for writing the book and I hope that you have hundreds of thousands of readers!
