Had a terrible cold, turned chest infection, and a I live alone struggling!! First the doc makes you visit the surgery even though I can hardly walk, and get the usual steroids and antibiotics. waited six hours for nhs doc to give me more stronger antibiotics and steroids, but now no better. No interest in me really! I mean xmas eve is just a normal day! Lower back pain making it impossible to do anything along with constant blocked lungs and chest. Have alpha 1 copd and keep getting treated like a smoker!! Find the NHS just ignoring me, no offer of help at home either... can hardlly boil kettle, what do you do if you have no friends or family to help!! Any advice?? Depression hitting big.
