It does get better .... eventually!

Chest infection resolved by emergency meds last November. Next a repeat performance at the start of January (nice entry to 2017!) but that decided to stick around so the emergency meds got followed by another dose!

You know that feeling "will it ever get better?" then, this morning I woke to bright skies and suddenly realised that the yuck feeling that's been hanging around for three months has finally gone and left .... without even saying "Goodbye!"

Now, don't get me wrong I'm happy its gone ... I just got so used to feeling bad that I forgot what good felt like!

I don't know but I think there might be a message or morale of some sort in there but, if I'm wrong (quite common) then sorry for wasting your time!

Have a good day

I just don't know when I got better, I guess it was probably a week or two ago but I just didn't notice! How odd is that? Reminder to self - be more vigilant about bow you feel every day!

Good morning y_not,

This is wonderful news for you. It's been a long one for many of us, and to hear it has disappeared without even saying cheerio is the best of news. How rude of it not to speak after being your close companion for so long, and how happy you sound. Good riddance to bad rubbish I say.

:-D

Hi Y-not, that's good news your infection has gone. A ray of hope for all of us suffering winter bugs. Have a good day yourself, I'm having a restful one as I had a long one yesterday at a council transport meeting.

Hello - nice to see you again, and I'm really pleased you're feeling better.

I know what you mean. You feel ill for so long that it seems that this is how it's going to be - that you've taken a massive step down. Then, one day you feel better!

Welcome back! x

Good to see you back and sorry to hear you have been fighting the fight again and again....I've been thinking..😊....perhaps everyone should have a hide out from other humans during the winter especially because that's how everyone picks up the germs...👿👾👿👾👿 hope you feel much better, huff x
