Feeling a bit of a fraud today……well since yesterday……have had a cough for 3 weeks, 2 negative LFTs, over the last week getting worse, awake coughing all night, headaches constantly and generally feeling lousy, bought pulse oximeter to check sats and recorded between 88 and 95. So rang GPs in the morning appointment for afternoon……with a prescribing pharmacist.
She was quite abrupt, sats normal at 97, temp normal and chest clear……….told me I hadn’t got a chest infection but gave me 5 days of antibiotics just in case?
I wouldn’t have bothered them normally and only now because of it being 3 weeks, but now I wish I hadn’t……she did say if it didn’t clear up in a week then she’d organise a chest X-ray…..

How very dare you access health care that you are entitled to!
Jokes aside, that’s what they’re there for and it’s your right to access these services if you’re unwell, 3 weeks is a long time and they should not be trying to guilt trip you for seeking help!
Hope you start to feel better soon!

I really hope you feel better soon 💞 3 weeks is a long time to feel unwell so you definitely did the right thing to contact the dr.

I hope you’re taking a couple of days off work to rest up and hopefully the antibiotics will help xx

Thankyou for the reassurance, retired now so no need for sick notes……..just been pottering in house……..she just made me feel worse and I’m an ex nurse but then that could be making me a tad over-sensitive?
Thanks again x

Don't be put off going back! The situation with GPs is appalling at the moment. Hope you soon feel better.

We sailed on Celebrity Summit quite a few years ago, we really enjoyed it. We like Princess too.

As MrsBC says the situation with gps is so bad now. My elderly SiL who lives alone rang for an ambulance at 3am last night as she had agonising back pain. The ambulance turned up at 8am. They gave her painkillers and contacted her gp today who has given her an appointment at the surgery for next Thursday 😔 SiL is not one to complain unless she’s in a lot of pain so it must have been really bad for her to ring, and it’s shocking to think that she’s now having to cope single handed for almost a week before she sees a dr 😡

The family are all helping out as much as we can but she really needs medical care

Again I really hope you feel better soon. Thankfully, as you are now retired you can take your time and rest up xx

Another busy weekend for us. DH picked Georgia up after work and they came home 4.30. We’ve all been to the cinema tonight to see the new Marvel film, Eternals, as we’re big Marvel fans. Then tomorrow we’re off to the theatre in Cardiff.

Enjoy! I've have 2 men in the kitchen fitting a new hob - they sound like 'to me, to you'
I'm dying to go and see what they're up to but Curry's now ask that you stay in a separate room.
