“The Scott Howell you don’t know almost died in 2014 after a 1,200-pound charcoal grill was dropped on him during its delivery. That Scott Howell spent the next four months taking doctor-prescribed pain killers, suffering from depression and ending up twice being checked into psychiatric hospitals.
‘I lost my way,’ Howell says. ‘I was a worn-out chef. I was a worn-out person.’
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis three years ago. I suffered from muscle stiffness and spasms. Besides, I was almost in constant pain. I started taking Prednisone 10 mg twice daily to take the disease under control. Muscle stiffness and pain were gone within some days. I’m still taking this drug https://abyskincare.com/isotretinoin/. I have a round face, but it’s better than pain.
His recovery continues, but these past two years have changed the Scott Howell we thought we knew.”—Andrea Weigl
