Have posted in the last couple of months regarding overwhelming tiredness which is being treated somewhat successfully with ferrous sulphate.
I have been off work since beginning of January and before that was absent most of December and a week or so in November all due to fatigue complicated with chest infection, severe colds/flu type illness and very sore throat.
I am due to start a phased return to work on Friday but have yet another sore throat with fever and muscle and joint aches.
When I discussed my return to work with my gp I expressed my anxiety about catching another cold (I work in a customer facing role) and he said that, while I was catching bugs, my immune system is fighting them as I haven't developed anything serious like pneumonia!
I didn't expect to get another one before I even went back
What can you suggest, if anything?
Why am I catching every cold going when my kids don't even seem to get a sniffle?
At this point I just want to go to bed and sleep until I'm well again. I have 2 children and am no kind of mother to them atm and I sure my husband is sick of my constant complaints. I know I am.
I woke this morning at 4am and all I want is my mum to come and take care of me. She died 3 years ago so it's unlikely.
