Day 179

2am, dear Reader, and I find myself in hospital again. I was doing so well this time and yesterday I felt good, in fact better than I have done since my allergy re-started. The hospital staff as ever have been fantastic and I am now pumped full of meds again. 

Sitting here you can see and observe just how much people take for granted these great people. People can be so rude and downright horrible to the staff here at the hospital. Demanding and just being so rude. How do they put up with it day in day out? Dedication must be the answer. Why are they on such low wages? Makes you sick in itself thinking of over paid footballers and other media professions. I understand it is a stressful time when we or a loved one are in hospital but to get cross at staff and treat them with no respect makes me so angry and on the steroids angrier!

So I am back up to full steroids. I just avoided an injection in my bottom again! And it is back to my own GP later this afternoon to review my meds. In order for the tests to be done to find my latest trigger you do have to be off all meds for five days, so nothing really anyone can do about that at the moment. Although I expect now I will be referred back to my specialist and epipens are something which I now need as soon as possible according to the doctors.

I would like to say a big thank you to all doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other staff who are helping me through my worst side of my allergy. I am grateful for their time and kind concern that as been shown to me during this extremely difficult time. I have the confidence that I am in good hands and I know that I have done everything for myself to control my symptoms and eliminate my triggers and that each and everyone of you have been kind enough to step in and get me the much needed help and meds I have needed and always fast too.

When I started this blog, I wanted to fill it with exciting things to try before I was forty. I wanted to fill it with wonderful adventures. But it became more of an allergy blog, which as allowed me to meet other allergy sufferers and I would like to thank you too for your kind support and educating me more about 'our condition' sometimes things do not go as we planned, but sometimes this works out for the better and this has been a huge help to me. I know I have made some friends for life.

Evening all x x x
