On Monday I phoned 111 and after explaining to them that my heart rate was a 133bpm and I was very breathless they sent a 999 ambulance which took me to hospital to access my situation, after about 3 hours they decided I was to be sent home In a taxi at 6am on a really cold morning which took my breath away, anyway managed to get into the house sat down all day as I felt so unwell neighbour called in to make tea and bought me fish and chips lovely people but could not eat as I was to breathless. By 745pm I was really struggling now , so rang 999 ambulance they came took me to hospital and I collapsed in the ambulance. I did not know how bad i was I ended up in critical care incubated. I woke up with a tube down my throat and just collapsed back to unconcisness for 24 hours after I had asked them to use high flow on me instead of a full face mask as I am so clostrophobic, thank fully they obliged and I got rid of the co2i was holding on to and have started to feel a lot better. Brilliant care and nursing could not question its the best! but instead of being moved to a pulmonary ward to recover and get back to normal they sent me home, as i really did not want to contract any chest infections or nasties to end up being there for weeks as I have not had any infections since august. Once I was home it was very difficult as i had to do every thing myself there is just no readjustment support from any one and when you lie on your own its a bit scary I don't know if anybody else has been in this situation and what they did about it Thank you for reading this Best Wishes to all Mogworth Ps sorry for any spelling mistakes
