Really fed up,I've had infection since September 2015,I've had 4 courses of IV taz and constantly on either coamoxiclav,1000mg amoxicillin,inhaled colomycin and arithromycin,in the past eighteen months. I think I've had a total of twelve weeks when I haven't had to take an antibiotic,,this infection though not as serious as some I've had in the past is just leaving me so exhausted and low,I haven't had a break from antibiotics in months and no closer to getting over the infection,I can't believe I'm actually wishing to be admitted to hospital,I was last in October past and knew then that another round of taz wasn't likely to work and I'm afraid it didnt...so just waiting to be able to send in another sample,at least I'm not worrying so much about not having enough oxygen to get out and about as I've just been too unwell to go out at all the past few weeks.
Still waiting to have portable oxygen issues sorted out,awaiting reassessment for portable oxygen again,absolutely no need for it,they just haven't worked out how much wastage is incurred with liquid oxygen as once you fill a flask whatever is unused is lost over 24 hours as it dissipates,and I don't believe the respiratory team have factored this in at all,oh dear 2017 has started so badly and I'd been so full of hope for a better year this year,I think I'm having a bit of the poor me's,just feeling tired of being tired and my head is so full of things I'd love to do but at the moment just getting out of bed seems like a small victory,and I can't stand that I'm feeling like that,I'd been trying so hard last year to push through all the infections and get on with life as best as I could,but it's just feeling so hard right now,sorry I'm on a bit of a down but hopefully if by next week I still have this infection ,I'll get admitted and get back on my feet.
All the best everyone and hope you're all feeling well,or as well as you can lol..it's a funny old life but at least we're still living!!!
