You know you have chiari when.... you have to stop playing with two year old daughter after only five minutes and she says "cause you have a headache?"  :(   I mean does she even know what a headache is or is she just repeating what she's heard me say over and over??

you look under the counter in the cabinet for.....something.  You sit down on the floor and wait for it to come back to you.  After looking around in there you see it.  Oh, yeah!! It's the pill box you were looking for to put your meds in because you take so many you can't remember whether you've taken them or not.
