It's been a fun week

Well on Saturday went to my first appointment at the psychiatrist and it only lasted around 20 minutes, got given a shit load of paper work to do for the next time which is great.

On the Sunday I went and picked up my puppy, got a Great Dane Cross, he's lovely. Unfortunately yesterday I started to have major breathing problems. I don't know why I just couldn't get any air into my lungs, felt like I had a vice on them and my throat was very tight. Had a driving lesson which I did try to go to but she sent me away after I sat down and couldn't say two words. Funnily I was bent over double most of the day almost laying in a heap and my mother who has worked in hospitals only said to me I shouldn't of been out last night.

Anyway eventually the doctor came to see me and gave me some steroids and a puffer thing to open my airways, he mentioned a virus which I'm hoping it is since I'm really worried that it was an allergic reaction to the pup.

  1. Hope you're feeling better today?

    And we need photos of the pup. Sorry, it's mandatory. Get to it. (well breathe FIRST, obviously!)

    Does he have a name?

  3. Erm, your Mum was a radiographer, why would she know about respiratory problems?

    Sounds more like one of your panic attacks you used to get, like when you got dropped off at ours from work that day.

    If you were allergic I'm sure it would have shown up a lot quicker. With some folk I know it is a matter of seconds not 4 days :-)

  4. She was a first aider too, even when being a radiographer you should receive basic training in other parts too before you specialise.

  5. Panic attack was part of it but only increasing the symptoms I already had really.
