What I’ve Read – May 2019

During the month, I was diagnosed with idiopathic intracranial hypertension, also known as IIH. Unfortunately, one of the effects of this condition, at least for me, is that I have an almost constant headache and have trouble reading! Not much reading happened this month.

I read the most amazing picture book – The Incurable Imagination by Paul Russell and Aska. I read this one numerous times, both to myself and to my nephews. The words and illustrations come together so beautifully.

I was able to listen to one audio book on my trip to Melbourne to see my specialist. It was Lily D V.A.P by Madeleine West. This was three of the Lily D books in a single audio book, and it was a lot of fun.

Now that I have a diagnosis and have started medication, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to get back to reading as it’s something I really miss.
