Recovering from infection
Last week I wrote about the problems I had the previous week, with very long memory tests which were done at home over a one and a half hour period.
Then during last week, I felt ill and then my wife realised that I had another chest infection.
I am prone to repeated chest infections, due to the fact that I have Bronchiectasis. This was something that developed when I was a child, after a bout of whooping cough, measles and mumps.
That I guess wrecked my lungs without anyone knowing, and that was made worse by a life working in industry.
Luckily for me I carry an emergency pack of antibiotics in case of emergencies, and these go with me when I go on holiday etc.
Along with this, I also have the added problem, that I carry the Heamophilis influenza bug with me, something that is deep inside my lungs, and even two weeks of antibiotics does not kill it off completely
So I guess life can be interesting and certainly not boring.
I guess this is one thing that upsets me when doctors etc ask if I am stressed or depressed, yes I get stressed when I don't remember how to do things, or I feel rough and can't get out for a walk etc, but that's not depression and tgese people cannot accept this
