I have been in hospital had a chest infection , the same time my son was in too with pneumonia , and the day I went into hospital my best friend died suddenly . I tested positive for the virus and spent a few days in hospital on a drip and antibiotics . I feel terrible lost a stone in weight as couldn't eat much , been to the doctors this morning for A1c , its going to be high I know as I was steroids six in the morning for 7 days and antibiotics , plus once I started eating all I could eat was toast and pasta . My son is recovering well he spent his 35th birthday in hospital , we both fell in on my birthday , today is the first day that I have been feeling better , but I am depressed I feel so down . I had a row with my brother , I haven't had the jab as I have phobia so he sent me a message when I fell ill and said 'your lungs will fill with fluid and you will die ' so when i found it difficult to breath I thought I was going to die. The ambulance took 10hours to reach my son and he almost died , then the same day i went into hospital , my husband took me to A&E and I collapsed in the queue , they took me straight through and i was put on a drip and oxygen , my blood sugar has been at its highest for 20 days or so 15. This morning it was 11.5 , hoping for lower tomorrow, but the nurse told me to not worry right now and that I need to start eating again because I have a long recovery as it was a very nasty infection. The doctor at the hospital said even if I'd had the jab I would have got the virus this bad as it is just sometimes how it works, my husband had mild symptoms and so did my daughter in law and 9 year old grandson was negative . I'm exhausted not sleeping good at all, and I am worried as i have like a camera flash in my left eye when I look at white wallpaper , I don't think it is anything , but it has stressed me out all day .
