After another visit to the doc - a GP registrar whom I'd never seen before - He prescribed a different type of inhaler called a Breezhaler; a capsule that's inserted into a little gadget, pierced, and then inhaled once, just once a day. I can't believe what a difference it's made!! Why did it take 3 docs' visits to be given this?!
I now breathe normally & hardly even cough! A new lease of life! 8)

When I got it from the pharmacy, I had to give them a phone number, as they said that after 2 weeks, they would call me to find out if it was working, so maybe this medication is on some kind of trial? It's indicated for COPD, although I have never been diagnosed with this. Anyway, I'm very grateful for it!

By the way, here I am beside the Castlerigg stone circle! Amazing place with wonderful views all around.

A better view of the circle.

I'm so glad you are now breathing better with the new medication.:)

Castlerigg is a lovely circle. We used to visit it regularly when we went to Cumbria. :)

Glad you are feeling better, Helen. A thumbs up for big, bad, greedy Pharma. (I couldn't resist.)
That is indeed beautiful scenery.

Helen, I am so glad you're feeling better. Have you been given a new diagnosis? Do they still say you have a lung infection or is it something else?

I've got yet another chest infection. :roll: I usually get one straight after coming back from being away, but this one just happened.
On anti-Bs & steroids again. :roll:

I enrolled at a surgery in an area called Sketty here in Swansea, but the docs seem very un-empathetic - not a patch on London doctors. :(

So glad Alfie is better (they are worth every cent aren't they, Theo just cost another same for his allergy and fungal treatments...I call the vet the bank where I deposit large sums, ha :lol: ). Don't forget to take yer probiotics!! Merry Christmas everyone. Sending lots of love!!
