Jennette Fulda reads from her memoir Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache That Wouldn't Go Away


Jennette Fulda went to bed on February 17, 2008, with a headache, and more than three years later, it still hasn't gone away. Yes, she's tried everything: intravenous drugs, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, subliminal messaging, marijuana (for medical purposes only), heavy drinking (which just made it hurt more), and lots and lots of chocolate. A pint of ice cream makes her feel better, but her insurance doesn't cover mint chocolate chip.


In this painfully honest, smart, and funny memoir, the popular blogger who chronicled her nearly two hundred pound weight loss in "Half-Assed "shares her incredible journey to find relief from a chronic headache. As she visits countless doctors, indulges all manner of unsolicited advice from the Internet, and investigates every possible cause, from a brain tumor to a dead twin living in her brain, Jennette considers what it means to suffer, how to live with pain, and why the best treatment might be the simplest: laughter.
