Postaday2011: flagging again

Last night I slept on the sofa to give poor Harry a chance to sleep. I am so very conscious that he gets up at 4.30am and if I have been coughing all night, which I have done for the last week, he gets precious little rest. Today I am shattered, the sofa bed isn’t the most comfortable of places and as I couldn’t lay down anyway, I had a really bad night, again.

Suffice to say tomorrow, if I don’t sleep tonight, I will succumb and go to the GP, it’s been going on too long now. I hate the prospects and will watch carefully to see if there are any small improvements before I go. I feel sure my immune system should be able to deal with this. Antibiotics are the last poison I want to put into my body. I mean the after effects are worse than the coughing and chest problems I am having at the moment. Tonight I will give my all into positive, healing thoughts so that I might avoid a prescription of chemical drugs…

I know I sound paranoid but I have had some really bad reactions in my past and I have a sensitivity to aspirin which does limit what I can take and explains why I prefer a more natural approach to health. I would just like to know why I have had such bad luck with five infections in three months. I must be doing something wrong. Well maybe, just maybe, I am building up a resistance to other bugs that are similar. I sure hope so…

Back to my blog tomorrow I hope, after a good night’s sleep. M

    Sorry to read you are still unwell. I had to resort to antibiotics after 5 weeks…
    the bug really gets you down, coughing, pains in the chest and a constant tiredness.
    Take care

      Hi Carole, I gave in and went to GP this afternoon. I was given a massive dose of steroids… not sure I want to take them, maybe I will see how things go and pray that nature will do her stuff… just be glad to feel on top of everything again. xx

    I’m sorry to see you’re still feeling under the weather…:(
    I hope you get better soon and don’t have to go to the GP…Does that stand for General Practitioner? You’ll have to forgive me….I live in Texas and I just call them all doctors, lol

      Hi Sharon, yes, gp is general practitioner, no forgiveness necessary, my fault, I forget the language difference between US and UK… I was just posting to Piglet, been given a huge dose of steroids but I think I might hang back and see if ity goes by itself first… Do not like taking chemical stuff at all….missed my post tonight, ah well, it’s all just a bit of fun.
