Chest infection already it not winter yet!!

Went to the doctors yesterday, it had been booked as a routine appointment but ended up being told I have got chest infection now on antibiotics Amoxicillin 500mg 3x a day, I just hope this is not the start of a run of them,

My daughter age 19 has just been diognosed with chronic fatigue, and I'm feeling guilty for all she has to do for me so had been trying to do more of the housework and feeding animals. I've already given up my allotments I'm feeling so sad at the moment

I can imagine that you are very down. It is probably all the changes in the weather that has caused you to be poorly. Several of my friends who have COPD have been having a terrible time with their breathing over the last week. Don't feel guilty with your daughter as you weren't to know she had Chronic fatigue but you must be devastated by the news. I can imagine having to give up your allotments was a blow as I am a keen gardener and we ar going to ahve to move as I can no longer manage the garden, I have to be content with a little patch at the bottom for growing a few veggies but OH has to dig it for me and most days I struggle to tend the veggies, especially the last couple of weeks as the heat has got on top of me to. Chin up. Any chest infection makes you feel low so when the antibiotics have kicked in you might find you ahve a lift in your spirits. Big hugsxx

Hi a42h

I am so sorry to read that you are suffering in this way, and I genuinely hope that both you start to feel better soon, and that your daughter is not too ill with her chronic fatigue. It sounds like a very difficult situation for the both of you.

I want to wish you all the best of luck and I genuinely hope that you both find some resolution and relief to your health issues.

All my hopes and dreams for you

So sorry sweetheart. You couldn't have done anything to predict your daughters health problems. I'm worried about mine as I hope she doesn't have to deal with all of my health issues. Just hang in there and do the best you can. That's all any of us can do. xxx Mitzi
