The pain tearing through my flesh was like a hot bullet cutting me in half. Cold tile pressed against my face as I lay on the floor screaming. What could be causing such agony? Only moments earlier I was ready for a normal Saturday night. Now I laid in the bathroom vomiting and wailing in distress. Nothing I did relieved the misery gripping my body. As a frigid sweat encased me, I had no clue a life was about to be drastically altered.
My name is Todd. This is my story of America.
