Patient H69

In this memoir Vanessa Potter, who has a busy job as an advertising film executive and a wife and mother to two young children, describes her experience of becoming ill with a mystery illness.  Over a period of a couple of days she loses her sight as well as becoming numb over her body.  Doctors are not sure of the diagnosis and she spends two weeks in hospital having various tests and examinations. 

After her sight begins to return, she is allowed to go home, but this becomes a slow process as it doesn't return all at once.  She then begins to investigate the scientific part of her illness.  I did skim through the second part of the book, it got a bit too much for me. 3/5

It sounds like it should have been very interesting but wasn't very readable.
