Hi Tracey. Sorry you are feeling so rough. Try and have some cat naps in the day. Won't be long now until you get into hospital so in the meantime try and rest and keep in the warm xxxx

Hi, sorry to hear you are feeling so unwell. You must feel exhausted not sleeping, cant you catch small sleeps during the day? I know its not perfect but I find it helps. Hope your hospital bed comes on time.Pam

Sleep has finally come, but @ the price of waking up choking, just can't win! I actually found laying down flat helped - strange I know!!

Good luck with all that. I'm now on asthma tablets as have a cough that simply won't go away & has caused me to crack a rib on my left side & is taking ages to heal, did it nearly 12 wks ago!
