Well today things went from bad to much worse!
I have stopped taking the codeine that I have for my back pain as I keep constantly having attacks of feeling out of control and codeine does alter the breathing so I was hoping that I would feel better but it didn't help at all .. had a word with my carer this morning and asked her to take me seriously so she wouldn't just brush it off .. that I have been feeling really bad and out of control! She immediately phoned the nurse and the team leader who both came straight away and the 3 of us had a long chat about it and I should be seeing the doctor tomorrow afternoon.
In the afternoon I went to the activities room and I joined in with the finishing of the letters we did last week and most probably bored the pants off everyone with my tales of woe at the same time! Then I went into the café to have an omelette and a cup of tea and promptly dozed off to sleep when a guy called Trigger shouted boo! at me and I woke up with such a jump and was extremely annoyed! I keep reminding him not to do that because of my heart condition but unfortunately he thinks that it's very funny!
I eventually came back to my flat but am really worried that I will have another attack and feel that I am going round the twist.. it's a horrible feeling.
