Was admitted to hospital 10 days ago with pneumonia having been quite ill for 8 days. Been home for 6 days now after 5 days in hospital. Feel much better than I did, but this awful tiredness is getting me down. Had a shower this morning and slept for an hour afterwards! Can't stay awake for more than a couple of hours and all I've done today is 15 minutes ironing and made myself a smoothie. I know everyone is different but is there any sort of yardstick as to when I might feel like rejoining the human race?! Have severe emphysema but strangely my breathlessness is not too bad. Probably because I'm doing so little!
