Amy

Amy and Tom eventually moved to another town where nobody knew of their windfall. Sometimes, Amy says, she regrets winning the lottery.

"A lot of my friends from New York, I do not speak to anymore," Amy says. "I do wish that I bought the milk sometimes because I wouldn't have half the headaches that I have [now]."

Although Amy says the money hasn't changed her, she thinks it's changed the people around her. "I wish I was poor old Amy back in New York where everybody just liked me for me, and they didn't look at me with dollar signs in their eyes," she says.

If Amy could go back and do things differently, she says she never would have gone public with her winnings. "I wish I wouldn't have done the media thing. [I should have] kept [the news] to myself."
