Normally, I am a glass half full kind of person. But, unfortunately I am becoming more concerned as each day unravels due to the COVID-19 situation and this country.
I honestly, believe, that it will spread, and that containment as such may slow the progress but inevitably the sheer numbers of people who are marginally unwell at first will enable the transmission of the disease to large numbers of people.
Here in lies my worries. If I get it, I know I am in for a seriously bumpy ride as I have very limited lung function about 23 - 27% . Now if I get it I cant really rack up to a A&E so I will have to 111, it then seems that a limbo situation unfolds, I have a rescue pack, but honestly that wont hold back the tide. So do I contact my lung nurse, my GP or 999 if it gets so worse. I can see a situation, whereby I am struggling for breath and if the virus has taken hold of a large number of the population my cries will go more or less unanswered.
Am I being stupid? what would you do?
