Easter holidays

It can be hard to explain to someone how it feels when your lungs aren't quite playing ball. Right now I feel as though I'm in some sort of bubble and each day it's getting smaller and smaller as my lungs get tighter and tighter. Hopefully that bizarre imagery will make some sort of sense with a few of you! I barely slept last night and the past few days I've just not stopped coughing - that, teamed up with a really tight chest and plenty of crackles, just kept me up for hours despite being shattered. I did wonder if it was the Sahara dust and pollution that was over on Thursday but that's all gone now and I'm still feeling rough breathing wise. I've got a cold so keeping an eye on things for the next couple of days..I just really don't want to have to spend the Easter holidays on IVs but then at the same time I don't want to end up very poorly! I know I've got to ring Judith on Monday to book myself in for a port flush & I know if I go I'm sounding like this they'll mention IVs so I'm hoping it all clears up by then.

Guess what! I've finally been out driving in my own car - I know I've had it for quite a while but I ended up having three months off driving lessons as I kept getting sick. It's such a comfortable car to drive (a Mini Countryman). I'm back having lessons at the moment but hopefully will be able to take my test soon so I can start getting myself places rather than feeling bad for relying on lifts all the time!

Easter holidays mean two weeks off :-) (for those who don't know, I work in a school for children with Autism) I don't have much planned, just a few lunches out, visiting places, seeing people. It's nice just not having to worry about setting an alarm for work and doing what you fancy. Let's see if these lungs sort themselves out because feeling like you're going to collapse every time you cough is wearing a bit thin! Have a lovely Sunday :-)
