I saw your post further down about there not being a place so you want to go home instead. I hope you get the care and support you need. Hopefully going home will make you feel somewhat better.

Pls know that u are not alone ...the oxygen the absolute panic with shortness of breath i experience this day in day out but i got morphine lorezepam and zopiclone to help combat the terror i was experiencing as the panic attacks where making me over think ridiculous thoughts ...i can say the morphine was prescribed to stop me being so tight inside and to relax me ...the lorezepam i use to calm me and the zopiclone i take when i want to sleep so usually works about 20 mins after taking .... as for doctors and time scales i do not want to know as i am doing it my way as going off previous admissions and 200 consultants later no 2 docs are the same and with such conflicating and contradicting advice i decided the only person who knows me is me ... I stopped almost all my meds which where not helping as they where causing more problems and can say im scared but feel much better doing things my way oh and got to say margaret my shortness of breath soon calms down once i sit with my huge electric fan blowing on my face ...i have one in all the rooms as believe me it helps so so much xxxxx take good care and will be thinking of you xxxx

Hello Margaret.

I am sorry as this must be distressing for you and for Frank. I know I for one, used to have a rather negative view of hospice care. It wasn't until someone I love dearly was looking into hospice care that I understood it offers such a wide range of support like rehabilitation, massages, pain control, psychological support, spiritual support and vital support for family members.

I hope that whether you get a bed in hospice care or home nursing, you will be comfortable and stress free. We are all thinking of you. πŸ€

Love,

Cas xx πŸ™‹πŸ•

Great that you're home Margaret. One step at a time - its natural you're feeling insecure at the moment, but you'll get there - you've made it this far. Don't rush to get back to Breatheasy or elsewhere; just enjoy being back home with your loved ones for the moment and the rest will follow. All very best wishes and hugs xxx

Well, Time_2_drink, let's all have a drink with you. Just go on as best you can, nothing will change. I suffered bad with my chest and breathing and pain there. I live in Thailand and get Cronic Broncitis a lot. I am from New Zealand And went back to see my son and 2 grandchildren. I was so bad I thought not long now. I went and had a private body scan and 2 modals showed in top right lung. Specialist said not cancer, probably some old flem stuck there. Same what I believed. Stopped smoking now 7 weeks and do not caugh, just a very little bit, hardly take my puffers any more and my breathing great. I did expect the scan to show the big C. But no. I just go on now and enjoy and wait for the time. It does not bother me. If your time is up that's it.

Keep your pecker up. 76 now and want to get to my 80, I will. I took up a hobby and am now an author, first book ski/Fi now published as eBook.

Just done a special it is FREE for a short time. My 2nd book in the series is close to finishing. Go onto Google and type in SMASHWORDS. Then in the search column type in my book name. "The Earth God Cometh" nothing to do with religion. Please all, download it to your phone, your pad or computer. A good FREE book to read while you are all laying down to rest.

Love to all. Ken
