I'm sorry,' replied Dr. Long as he sat down to discuss the headaches that had been plaguing me for weeks now. He continued, 'We're going to have to go in to fix the problem causing your headaches, hon.' The headaches were constant, and I would try to get rid of them by pushing in the sides of my head. Taking over-the-counter medications was pretty worthless. But I took them until I worried I would rot my liver. I was irritated at a lot of stuff with no reason. This went on for three months or so. When asked how the headaches were, the best description I had was 'PMS times five.' To many people, the victims of Hydrocephalus are nothing more than a number; some estimates put it at two out of every thousand births (according to the National Institute of Health). Yet to the victims of this disease and their families, Hydrocephalus is a life altering condition with the power to destroy families;or bring them closer together. Robin Holloway's story is one of pain but also support, humor, and redemption. When her father noticed an abnormal growth of her skull when she was only months old, her family knew that special challenges would await her. Through these words, Robin's story will reach out to victims and families of a variety of conditions, giving them a blue print for overcoming whatever obstacles await them.
