moan time...

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Sorry about this blog but I really need a moan!!
I can't do it to DH as he's been wonderful, he's cooked, cleaned, nursed and ran me to hospital and doctors appointments...a real tower of strength apart from one comment of 'you look yellow'...but having said that, he isn't wrong either!
So here goes!

I don't seem to have blogged for a while, mainly due to ill health.
I seem to be picking up every little thing around just lately.
I know my immune system is low but I'm getting pretty hacked off now, just when I feel I'm doing ok something else crawls out of the woodwork and knocks me down again.
My defences are low and I seem to be having a job getting them back up.

Things were looking better at one point but since December of last year when I had a severe allergic reaction nothing seems to have gone well.
That in itself took until the end of March to finish treatment and then I had a couple of weeks of feeling good before I had an arthritis flare up in my knee, not so bad as I'm used to that but after that was out of the way I had a period of lethargy and a bout of jaundice caused by a liver complaint.

I worked my way through that and was beginning to feel well.
I started walking again and enjoyed a few weeks where I didn't feel too bad.
I began going to all my clubs and meetings again and was really looking forward to the Queen's five day Jubilee celebrations.
I wish I hadn't bothered, I got absolutely soaked through on the first day and ended up with a sore throat and achey muscles, my voice disappeared for five days and a chest infection set in. Eventually I was told it was a virus and there was nothing they could do.
Then the coughing spasms and breathlessness started and was told I also had a bad bout of bronchitis! never rains but it pours...but that's a different story, the weather is atrocious!!

Eventually the cough was almost cleared and for a week I felt good, really well, better than I'd been for ages, DH even took me out for a ride and I managed a short walk.

But nothing ever lasts and on Sunday I awoke with a dull stomach ache and low back pain which throughout the day got worse and worse.
I couldn't pass urine properly and what little I did was thick and dark pink with blood...
More tests ensued and I've now got a kidney infection...

I feel achy, lethargic, headachy, I've a high temperature, chills and the abdomen and back pain is awful.
It's uncomfortable to sit, it feels as if my inside are dragging down if I stand, I just can't get comfy!
So I lie down which sends me to sleep...not a restful sleep either!

I've to drink loads of water to clear the infection (I'm normally good at drinking around 12 glasses a day but I've more than doubled that) which results in frequent agonising trips to the bathroom and on top of that the antibiotic medication has given me the it'll help! and hopefully all that water is flushing the infection out.
Roll on next week!

Moan over...thanks for listening, I'm going back to sleep now! emoticon emoticon

    Update to this blog...seems I had kidney stones, four of them which I passed successfully but excrutiatingly.
    I'm now fine and haven't been near a doctor or hospital for ten weeks. My liver is fine, my kidneys are fine and my immune system is almost normal, higher than it's been in the past four years and best of all I feel fine, perfectly fine...YAY!!!!

    I hate it when I feel sick and one thing comes right on top of the last. I hope you start to feel better soon.
