Hope you feel better soon, take care.😊 Bernadette xx

I hate the steroid effects they make me feel lousy

I feel very hungry on steroids and felt sick when hungry. I also put on weight. I'd try to keep lots of healthy food (fruit and veg) nearby so you can snack without putting on too much weight.

I caught a cold at the weekend that has gone into a viral infection. I have been on steroids and antibiotics since Tuesday but I am still constantly wheezing and off work even after using a nebuliser yesterday, so it’s back to the Doctors again tomorrow morning.

I’m still yet to find anything that helps the side effects of the meds but try to stay positive and plan good things for when you feel better
