I've been off work since I got pneumonia and severe asthma exacerbation in November, 10 weeks off work and I'm finally going back tomorrow! I'm a nurse, and a 14 hour shift tomorrow is filling me with dread, but I'm happy to start living life a little before I'm sick again.
Does anyone else feel this way? That the good days won't last and you need to make the most of them before you get sick again? I keep thinking its a bad way to live but I've noticed that I make the most of life on my well days. Everyone else thinks I'm crazy that I'm always thinking about when will I next be sick, how long do I have to enjoy before I'm stuck at home sick, too tired to do anything, or sat in hospital. I know it's inevitable that I'll be sick again, but I do still hope I'll get more control over my asthma.
Until then the good days are for living, and I'm going to make the most of them! As for the bad days, I'm going to get help a whole lot faster and hopefully that'll help me have less of the sick days!
Hope everyone is well!
