Never written a blog in my life!
After being ill for the last 5 months with endless chest infections although had many probs with bronchitis/ pluracy/pneumonia throught my entire life, recently collapsing 4 or 5 times at work and (getting fobbed off by what now seems like every gp in the surgery )
I collapsed again a month ago now with exhaustion and being unable to breathe and was rushed to hospital with exacerbations of copd as I now know and emphyema.. Since coming out of hospital they seem to be unable to control the exacerbations so as soon as I finish the antibiotics/steroids I hit the deck again... Feeling pretty rubbish and as am a loan parent and now on the sick and waiting to hear about a claim for ESA
This will be the 1st time in over 20 years have claimed any sickness benefit, I am now so stressed over money and all the bills coming in am not sleeping my hairs falling out and feel really miserable this morning.. My chest is terrible and am struggling to get off the settee as each time go to clean up I can't breathe and have chest pains and have to sit back down and take the inhalers/nebs.. Someone please tell me this gets better?
