How do you do it

I decided once again to try harder ? Had last low dose sleep tablet of doc last night managed 4 hours whoopee .Looked at old posts on site and info they had given for doctor doom internet scared he'll out of myself .Decided right if I staying upstairs try to get rid of some clothes won't be needing drawers chocker block proceeded to knock ambultory oxygen flying and get out of puff so 15 minutes later only Half a bag done and more mess than when I started is it because I still have infection or always like this when I read posts I always marvel at things some people do thanks

Hi Time -to-drink

I too have 3 x doxycycline left and still tight chested , had amoxicillin for a week plus steroids but doc said I didn't need any more steroids , I don't think this doctor is 'on it' and keep wondering if I should go to hospital instead ,

Hope these meds work for you

Hi Dianna It's difficult to know what to do isn't it feels like it's left to God and providence like my mam used to say .I came out of hospital about 10 days ago I think with antibiotics then was without for a few days till matron came to do follow up visit like you more antibiotics .still got a wheeze and thick phlegm matron coming Wednesday think it her last visit she will be taking nebulisar back .I sure neb is helping but doctor won't prescribe the fluids they finish on Monday and it will be back to struggling for breathe without relief .I don't know what to say about hospital maybe wait until Last tablet unless you feel really ill I know sitting for hours in A@e not good

Little steps at a time. Day 1 - Bin bag at the ready sort out one draw, have the rest of the day off. Day 2 sort out the next draw and so on. The same with the kitchen, the sideboard, draws or storage in any room. The big things like wardrobes, cupboards under the stairs get hubby to help. I know it seems a bit long winded but in the end once you have gone slowly through the house, have a week off and start again, things will be a lot easier each time you complete a circuit.

Never think you have failed if you can't finish a task, it just means it will take two days to clear one draw.

With me it was trying to get my head around the fact I was no longer a size 6/8 petite but now size 16 as I'm on maintenance steriod's now. So now the small sized clothes have gone but its my craft goodies will be the hardest to cull, I'm afraid the big girl knickers are going to have a few extra tugs ups to get me moving.
