I don't even know where to start. I'm 37 and on day 6 of cystitis and seriously considering just moving into my bathroom!
I have had water infections on and off for the last 4 years. They tend to occur when my IBS flares or after sex. I have been to the doctors so many times some times when they test my water there is an infection and other times there isn't. I do find trimethoprim helps but some times it takes 2 courses back to back to see any improvement.
My husband is not supportive in any way and gets mad and me when they flare as I have to cancel plans we have made- which obviously doesn't help. I was a single parent for years and used to suffer quite badly with anxiety and I do think my anxiety doesn't help the situation.I have been in tears several times over the weekend and t's bringing me down so much. I can't leave the house or go to work and I'm having to cancel plans with my daughter friends and family.
I'm currently waiting for the doctors to open but don't think I can travel the 10 minute journey there :-(
I have taken buscopan for the bladder spasms which helps, paracetamol and cranberry cystits relief satchet to help but this morning it's bad as ever.
Is anyone else in the same situation? Please tell me how you manage this x
