12 days to go and im ill :(

I feel absolutely rotten! what started as a sore throat has turned into a full blown cold, which is going to my chest. I have been using my inhalours as my asthma is really playing up, Im just feeling crap im having myself a little pity party. Going to see the doctor tomorrow in hope that they can stop it before it turns into a full on chest infection.


  • Oh no! Positive Mental Attitude! You'll be great on the day. I'm starting a pre-emotive strike with First Defense so I don't get ill because a few people in my office are ill. Lots of water, rest and no talking! 12 days is plenty of time to get better.

    Once you get some antibiotics down you things will improve , in 12 days you will be ok . I have asthma and I dread it if I start with a cough because as you say it could turn nasty with the asthma . My doc told me after my last bad attack , next time I start with a cold to get to the docs for antibiotics to kill it b4 it sets in . Hope you Ge it sorted x

    You will be fine - you have time to recover, remember that and RELAX.

    At 4 days to go I came out in a very red lumpy rash over the entire of my right forearm and some of my left (and a little on my face!), I had burns all over my legs, a massive red/itchy stripe on my left wrist from labs and my contact lenses started playing up. Did everything I could and it went away in time (the burns obviously didn't, but they went down enough to stop hurting and therefore stopped bothering me/stopping me walking!).

    If you use a steriod preventer brown inhaler (mine is beclometasone)double the dose. Whenever I get a cough or cold it sparks off my asthma, so my gp recommends that if I get a cold I should double my inhaler dose. I have found it helps, and he rarely has to prescribe me additional steroids. when I begin to pick up, I go back to my usual dosage.

    Hope this helps, and that you feel fabulous on your big day xx
