Hi, I would like to introduce myself to this site.
I am a 41 yr old mum of two and have a wonderful hubby who looks after me whenever I am I'll!
I am off work this week for the umpteenth time with pneumonia ( it's been recurring for 10 years now on average about 4 times a year) I have antibiotics in the house for when it happens to prevent hospitalisation which means I can catch it at the start.
I don't have cf,copd,Bronchiectasis,Empysima(it is in thanks family though)I don't have an impaired immune system although I am wheat intolerant so have been Gluten free for 5 years as it exasperates my asthma.
I don't smoke either.
My asthma is under control and when I am well I am very well.
I am very concerned about my future though, about the long term effects of antibiotics and what the chance is oif me developing other associated illnesses.
I assume there are others out there like me?
Has anyone found an answer?
I can't help worrying about these things more each time it happens
