Overall, this book made me cry and laugh because, Hell, I've been there. Seeing it in writing made it all the more real, but all the more easy to deal with for a time, as well.
Viive’s illness is woven effortlessly into the story as she takes on a very strong-willed and straightforward mother and a sister-in-law deserving of the “Most Annoying” trophy. The relationship the main character has with her caring and dedicated husband is so charming, but not without some flaws, which makes it relatable.
Sepp’s depiction of office life is spot on, with crazy and memorable co-workers, lack of the elusive work-life balance and forced vacation, which is anything but.
Throw in a support group and some drugs and you’ve got a great book! No Advil required!
Every description was so accurate it could have been something I said myself. It was so relatable that I found myself crying at times with empathy for the characters and what those of us with migraines struggle through. Unfortunately, I was up in the middle of the night with a migraine while reading this and, as the author so aptly states, crying with a migraine is absolutely on the do not do list. Reading my thoughts and feelings in such an accurate portrayal was moving and more than a little cathartic.
The guilt was so well captured. It's not something that is often discussed when people talk about chronic illness and I was glad to see it honestly and openly described.
I was so pleased to see a frustrating situation dealt with that most migraineurs have experienced; that person who always says, "How bad can it be? It's just a headache, take some Tylenol." Haven't we all wanted to throttle someone like that? Or the excedrin commercial. If two excedrin gets rid of your migraine, you don't really know what a migraine is. I want to reach through the screen and choke someone.
I loved the struggle with trying to decide which medicines to take, how many and when. We are only allowed so few per month that they become like gold. What if I take it now and end up really needing it later and can't take it? Are migraineurs the only ones who have to decide when to self medicate this way? Again, such an accurate and spot on portrayal of what it's really like living this way.Read more ›
