Hey all, hope you are keeping warm on this dreadful day!
I am very excited because I'm going on holiday to Cuba on Tuesday, however... I have just come down with my 3rd cold/flu within about 2 months and I feel very weak and wheezy. The issue is that I recently started my loading dose of Cimzia biologic injections, and I'm also on steroids, so I'm guessing my immune system isn't going to fight this cold off easily. I'm due to have my next two Cimzia injections on Monday, (a short 12 hours before my 10 hour flight!) and I'm worried if I am still ill that the nurse will tell me I can't have them. I don't want to miss them after just starting my loading dose because I know I need to keep up a regular dose in my body for 6 weeks to give the drug a fighting chance of working.
I don't think there is much point going to the GP as (excuse grossness), I can tell this is a virus rather than an infection based on the clear colour of my flem/snot (ew), so there's not much point getting antibiotics.
I've also got a lot to do before Monday to ensure all my work is done - I can't risk having time out of the office, and I have two birthday parties this weekend. (Why does life not slow down? I'm sure this is why I'm always ill!)
Please send tips and advice on how to get as well as possible over the next few days despite my busy schedule! I'm currently living off lemsips, drinking lots of water and herbal teas and I'm eating pretty well, but I can always add more superfoods to my diet!
