Is there nobody, such as a grandparent, who could look after your son for a few days?

I sympathise. I have been ill for about 6 weeks with a viral illness/infection and my asthma is really bad and am on steroids too. Sounds like you probably need the rest off work as I tried going to work and made myself worse and was really ill all this week,almost passing out at work last friday

I think you should try and sort something out for a rest and be off work

There seems to be a lot of viral illnesses about just now that are messing people up. I've honestly felt like I'm never going to get better
