so my friends, yesterday the 14th of May was my 29th birthday.  a time to celebrate? no. ive had relapse pneumonia, and also have a sinus infection from hell (woke at 3am choking on phlegm and blood) plus pharyngitis, laryngitis and bronchial spasms. THEN went to doc for follow up yesterday (my bday) to be told i must now use a puffer/ventolin as complications from the pneumonia have caused asthma.
I have bursitis in my right hip. ive had 4 days off work. i cant swallow solid foods. i dont have the energy to stand in the shower, so i have baths. i havent slept in nearly a week.
 
so im 29- what do i have to show for it? im sorry im so negative right now.

Dear Maz

I am so sorry your feeling so dang sick and I wish there was something we could do to help you.  cool

In this busy world we often take those closest to us for granted,
and we don't stop to tell them what's in our hearts...
But today seems like the perfect time to tell you how special you are
and how very much you mean to all.  
Happy Birthday!

Hugs and Best Wishes

Kitt

Julie, Gail & Kitt,

i love you all! its 3am here in the land down under and yet again i woke, choking on phlegm and other rubbish from my sinuses and although my body is at breaking point and i am tired, i am not 'sleepy' if that makes sense. you know when you have a fever and chills and aches etc and you feel too sick to sleep? thats me. ive got a humidifier in here, been doing steam inhalations, getting used to my new puffer, but the fact remains the coughing spasms are bringing up blood and im already anaemic, i dont need this. i am constantly breathless. I cannot get comfy in bed and I am painfully exhausted.

I just want to cry cry
 
Maz XX- i have to believe better days are ahead

Maz,
Happy B-Day & hang in there. You sound so much like me on my 30th b-day, but I turn 32 next month & all those issues are largely behind me. I thought all hope was lost for a while there, but just at the darkest moment things started to turn around. I hope you get to feeling better soon & I will say an extra prayer for your healing.

peace,
frances

Thankyou Julie, i am in the land of the living, just still incredibly unwell and finding it hard to even get the strength to got on the board. thankyou so much for caring, you're a special lady. i see a ENT specialist soon and will talk options re more sinus surgery and repair of a botched tonsillectomy. I am simply overwhelmed by the state of my physical health- it just feels too hard.

peace, love and blessings always,

Maz XX sad
