Little miss make up
So most of you know from my social media that I wasn't well last week. Having an autoimmune disease can be very hard so I wanted to tell you all about it.
Last Tuesday I did my driving test and I passed I was over the moon, but later that even I could feel I wasn't myself and as the evening past into night I kept feeling worse. I knew I had a kidney infection as I suffer from them but this one was worse than I have ever had. I was in utter agony curled up in a ball and I couldn't move.
I did some natural remedies research as I always do and found lemon and ginger tea was lent to help. So Mam made me some as I have so many different herbal teas. The tea did give me some relief along with pain killers of course and I finally got some sleep.
The next morning I woke and I was too bad. As the day went on I kept getting worse. That evening I rang care doc and they wanted to sent me straight to hospital. Of course I didn't want to go as I would be waiting all night to see a doctor. My Mam rang the nurse in care doc again and asked could they see me.
I went in ans seen the doctor who confirmed I had a kidney infection but also a bladder infection. He said they where very bad infections and gave me antibiotics.
The reason they wanted me to go to hospital was because all of my health problems and if it wasn't an infection the hospital would be able to do more tests but it was just the infections and I had a week long of antibiotics.
I didnt start to feel ok until after five days of the antibiotics. My immune system is very weak much like a new born babies and I will pick up an infection very easily. Been on antibiotics weakens my immune system even more making me more likely to get sick again after been on them. My body is always attacking its own immune system which is why it's so weak and that's why I'm always getting sick.
I have to be very careful and always washing my hands and using hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes and sprays. It can be tough but I manage as best as I can. I'm feeling good again still tired but I'm ok and hopefully I won't get another infection.
Thanks for reading.
Hope you enjoyed this little post.
Lots of love,
