hi there I'm so glad I went on to this website and read everyone's stories.. I've had COPD for about 4 years now,, for the past 15 years there hasn't been a year that I haven't went down with plurisey and pneumonia,, last October I came down with my usual chest infection,, went to the doctors and got antibiotics..
Finished my course went back to my GP as there was no improvement,, prescribed another course,, again no improvement..
i was on my 6th course then he arranged for me to go for a CT scan.. I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis in December,, was given doxycycline,, different inhalours and appointment to see chest physiotherapist who taught me how to clear my chest..
for the past 6 months there hasn't been a week went by without me catching another infection,, I normally get one sometimes two good days out a week
was at my follow up appointment last Thursday and told her that nothing seems to be working,, I got a letter from her to take to my GP to say I've to be prescribed Carbocistiene...
Today all I have done is cry,, I'm 52 I live on my own and I would be telling lies if I said I'm not scared cause I am as there's day's go by I don't see anyone and there's times I'm so weak my temperature is so high I can barley lift a phone...
having this condition has made me feel so alone,,, I don't speak to my friends as much as I used to,, who wants to hear someone say
"" I'm not feeling good ""
i am a strong person though was starting to give up on fighting this condition...
reading your stories has gave me that fight back and I would like to thank you all for that
