I'm really starting to feel very fed up now.
My symptoms have been getting steadily worse over the last few days again. I keep thinking I really am OK (lying through my teeth! LOL). I just feel so ill and have done for weeks. Cold, Asthma triggered, Sinusitis, Asthma triggered again, Steroids, nebuliser, it goes on and on. The only way I can describe it is it being like having stood in the middle of the motorway and being hit by a 10 ton lorry at 70MPH straight into my chest! I ache all over, my chest hurts to move/breath etc and yesteday when i started to feel a bit better i thought yey and then last night went down hill quickly, coughing so bad i was gagging and nearly being sick I hate being ill. the out of hours doctor this morning has said i haven't got a chest infection which is good cos I'm not good with antibiotics (allergic to five at the last count). He said he thinks its all asthma related and has put me back on the steroid tabs and doubled the ventolin dose in the nebuliser also he's given me codeine cough linctus to take and try to stop the coughing a bit and told me to carry on with my brown inhaler too. I feel like a walking drug shop. I'm not too bad if i stay completely upright but if i try to lay down the coughing starts. I haven't slept for days and I'm supposed to be going back to work tomorrow.
Any advice, support, ideas, things to make me smile again and take my mind off feeling sorry for myself would be really appreciated right now.
