Hi T family, Just want to preface this by saying I don't want any negativity on this thread please. I'm in hospital with pneumonia, pluracy and dehydration. My 5th day and I'm facing my biggest fear ... Medications. I'm currently in IV penicillin, fluids and maxalon, and orally Ibuprofen, Panadine forte and doxycycline (as my second antibiotic) Just seems like so much for someone who doesn't even like to take a codine table. Unfortunately it's just one of those situations where I don't have a choice. I've never even been this ill. My doctor has been great - originally wanted me on an "mycin" class of antibiotics which I flatly refused so he said I could have the doxycycline instead which shouldn't upset my ears BUT I couldn't choose not to take it because otherwise within a few days I wouldn't be a) In a capacity to decide or b) making no decisions at all because ... Well fill in the blanks... So I guess I'm thankful he tried to work around my T for me. I do feel my T is a little louder but I'm in a pretty stressful situation too so I'm being positive and putting it down to that. Guess I'm just in here looking for positive stories (positive ONLY), good wishes and good ear vibes you want to throw my way!
