i have always 'just got on with it' whenever unwell, asthma attack? just get on with it! feeling really unwell? don't moan, just get on with it! 2 years ago i had 12 courses of antibiotics, 2 courses of steroids, 5 weeks off work and couldn't believe how ill i felt, i never take time off work and never complain of feeling unwell to other people. i eneded up sick of my own voice complaining of feeling ill. After fighting with my dr to be referred to a consultant, i eventually won, received my appointment and after tests discovered apart from asthma i also had bronchiectasis. I had a year of taking Azithromycin 3 times a week and no chest infections, i am still taking Azithromycin but since january, have had 3 chest infections, requiring antibiotics, steroids, a trip at A and E and 3 weeks away from work. I currently am waiting for results of another sputum sample to confirm another chest infection which i expect to receive another course of antibiotics. I feel so unwell and people say '' how are you'' and i reply '' i feel dreadful'' My colleagues must dread asking, but i wouyld never previously have told them the truth, so am i becoming a drama queen?
I must be feeling realy stressed at moment as i only usually look at other peoples questions and would never dream of submitting one,
