Hi everyone, I am suddenly extremely ill since last week. Sorry I have not been on here for a while, my iPad is kaput, borrowed one to post this.
I've had temp 39.9, think that's around 103 in old money, horrible hard headaches spreading down the back of my neck and shoulders, feel like I've been hit by a bus. No smell or taste, can't stand light or noise, total exhaustion, cough and tight, gripped lungs, this is not a cold or pneumonia which I've had many times past.
Rang GP Friday but the girl on phone said there are colds going round from the schools opening. Friday night rang 111 they said it sounded like pneumonia and covid and wanted me in hospital but I could not face going to the hospital where my dear husband died not that long ago, stuffy place, he got moved around 5 times in 6 days. Strange, having hallucinations I didn't seem to care if I died.
I can't get a covid test, nor GP who prescribed 1 Doxycycline for a week!! I have lifelong bronchiectasis with half left lung removed, one doxy a day for a week, might as well take smarties, I would feel better I told her but a few days later it will come back again worse than before, I thanked her and she said I think I'll change it to double the dose and time! Why do they still not know, it's in Nice Guidelines for Bronch.
I am also worried for our dear friend cofdrop, I notice she has been missing ages and must be having a very difficult time, her daughter is a wonderful teacher so that's a worry too. Cofdrop has given me so much help, years ago she passed the info for my Lung Flute mucus clearing device, I have used it every day since I received it, for me it breaks up mucus better than any other way, I'm sure it's getting me through this covid like rubbish on my chest, just hope it does not worsen next week like we hear.
Please everyone don't take chances, wear your mask, I have been isolating at my home since Feb, I don't know where I picked this up, children did come round my garden to look for a missing cat, they touched shed handles and keys but I cleaned those after. My daughter comes in occasionally with a mask on?
Dearest Sue, if you read this I am thinking of you, truly hope you and your lovely family have stayed clear of this horrific virus I've picked up.
Ps, they found the beautiful black cat down the road with a man she had taken a liking to, little monkey.
