I’ve been sick for a few weeks. Actually hurt then sick. Tripped and cracked my knee good. Therapy equals boring. But like mighty mouse, audio books were there to save the day. Part of therapy is walking. Getting lost in a good story makes it so much easier. But then, the dreaded pollen season arrived. This year much worse than most. People who were never bothered by allergies before are suffering now. A friend said she was ready to call her doctor and ask for a CAT scan because she knew she had a brain tumor.

If you suffer from allergies and can’t take the medication like me this is really an ugly time of year. Taking allergy medication just puts me in a stupor and I have a hangover without any of the fun. My daily walks had to end. Even on the beach the pollen is bad. This year it affected my eyes. Constant stinging, redness, swelling, blurred vision and no amount of drops seem to help. Time on the computer was drastically limited, even watching TV was troublesome. It absolutely kills me not to be outside in 75° beautiful cloudless sky days.

Again, audio books were there to save the day. I put off reading Stieg Larson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy until I had the time to go through all three books at once. Each book is more than 18 hours of listening time. But thanks to the wonders of oak pollen I had the time. I mean what else was I going to do between going to doctors appointments? I have had the time to catch up my to be read or to be listened to books friend had written. I can’t say I enjoyed the reason why I had all this time to read I am thankful for it. I highly recommend audio books.
