Long time since I have posted


Hi everyone hope you are all as well as can be expected and have managed to dodge the flu 😟 , I ended up in hospital Christmas night couldn’t breathe then spent a week in bed at home as only have upstairs toilet facilities, I was so scared I have never had an exacerbation like it hospital took blood and X-ray couldn’t find any sign of infection so sent me home told me to carry on with the steroids , even now 5/6 weeks later I get so tired , I am just about to have a pulmonary rehab assessment as although I have done 2courses over the last 4 /5 years I feel it would be good to do it again .

Sorry I have not been in for so long but have missed you all , take care and hope all are doing ok

Love Cales xx

So very sorry to hear that you're struggling. I hope that you will be feeling better really soon. XXX

The flu has really been unbelievable this year. It is 4 weeks since I started with the flu and still have a bad cough that I just can't seem to get rid of plus am more short of breath than normal as well. I am also very tired and have been having a nap that can last an hour or so after lunch and again after supper and have no problem sleeping through the night.
