but there is a 90 min wait on hold.

 

A friend of mine had to call here, and waited 4 hours.  For a phone consult.  Nuts.

Hey all almost 2am here. Been a pretty awful night to be honest. 

 

Body in agony, unable to get comfy and sleep, tossing and turning, slowly as my body aches :( horrible. 

 

My legs have horrendous shooting pains down them. My lungs hurt as I breathe. 

 

I took some pills and had some juice and it seemed to help a bit. Will try eat something as I’m starving. Some cereal maybe. 

 

Thanks for all your support ❤️

Just got through to 111... after a 40 min wait. Lady was really kind, says that yes, it is probably the virus, and a clinician will call me back asap (but likely to be a good few hours away) 

 

Main advice though is to isolate and not leave the house. 

 

In the past hour ive gone from being freezing cold and shaking, to being hot, and clammy to touch. Madness. Nightmare all this !!!!

 

I fucking knew id get it 😠

 

At least my legs arent aching as BAD as before. SO i may be able to rest a little bit. almost 3am now. Will sip some juice and lie down xx

40 min doesn't sound THAT bad. I tried to contact emergency line here. It said I was 369th (yes, I wrote it correctly - three hundred sixty ninth) in the line :blink:

 

Did the doc contacted you yet? 

 

One more thing - I'd suggest keep your flat warm (but not hot) and let fresh air at least two times a day. Maybe your friend could top your gas for you. You don't want to force your body to do additional work of warming you up - it has enough work fighting the infection.

Someone from a community outreach just been round. I contacted them today and they sent someone round to sort my gas for me (topped the card up) and got me some chicken soup and bread, and picked up my medication.

He even added a bag of haribo to the shopping bag!! How absolutely lovely of him.

Ive realised that when im cold, i struggle to breathe more, so will try to keep it warm( ish) in the flat.

 

There is enough on the card now. 

 

Im going to try have some soup soon. And drink some lucozade. And rest x

Hey Sal,  I'm glad you got sorted with some supplies.  I'm sorry you're feeling so crummy and hope you're sleeping it off right now.  Definitely stay hydrated, like others have said (really dig your heels into that tea drinking stereotype)

and get plenty of water too.

 

Hope you're on your way to  a speedy recovery!!

Heyoo, Sal, sorry to bother you during this time but momsauce has requested that i pester you to stay as hydrated as you possibly can ❤️

 

Hey Mia, you definitely are NOT bothering me so dont think that at all, its lovely that you and your mum are thinking of me ❤️ thank you so much xx

Hey all. Had quite a bad night sleep - body just aching so much so hard to get comfy. Finally managed to get some rest though, woken up with horrific toothache and a fucking absess on my gum!!!! WHAT THE FUCK. Can i get a break please?

Cant even take ibuprofen to take down the swelling as been advised not to as can make symptoms of the virus worse...

Also feel like Jackson hates me cos i havent been able to play at all :( im very weepy today.

 

My hair needs washing but the thought of having to try and wash makes me cry too. I can barely move without falling into breathing difficulties. 

 

Anyway. Its 11am. Maybe i should eat something? Im drinking some lucozade at the moment, the bubbles are helping my nausea. 

 

Thanks again for checking on me etc. I appreciate your support so much xx

I'd say breathing and staying hydrated is more important than washing! Take care.

 

Yes you are definitely right Fox, thanks for the reminder ❤️ x

Toothache has gone down thankfully!! Phew.
