- 40mg Prednisolone (currently on a reducing dose, but that always takes a while), my steroid tablets to calm the inflammation and wheezing.
- 150mg Sertraline, an antidepressant, which also controls my spiralling OCD, when that can be controlled.
- Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin supplements and Glucosamine. Supplements for my diet to improve my general wellbeing and help boost my flagging immune system
- Symbicort, steroid and long acting reliever.
- Beconase, for my rhinitis.
- And then last (but not least) my Ventolin and Atrovent, now depending on how I feel or what my peak flow is, I can either neb this to a 5mg Ventolin to 500mcg Atrovent ratio, OR have it from my inhaler via a spacer for a 100mcg Ventolin to 20mcg Atrovent ratio. It just depends on how I feel really and what my lungs are up to.
- Once a week, I have to take 70mg of Alendronic Acid. This is used to protect and help my bones, stopping them from fracturing.
- As well as when I need it 2 Co-Codamil 30/500's. Painkillers, but I don't like how they make me sleepy when I have them, so I do try and leave those be as much as possible.
It was quite annoying though, I used my neb, like I was supposed to, only for the idiot next door to start banging on the wall, complaining! After all the noise he makes on a daily basis, he has no right to complain! After all, it is a MEDICAL device. Yes it is noisy, but it SAVES MY LIFE and means that I can be afforded some time at home, instead of being in hospital constantly, which would have been the case without it. Then there would be the constant complaints about ambulances turning up with blues and twos. Bare in mind its completely acceptable to play music so loudly that it rattles the whole building. He really is a toss-pot.
I am waiting now for my lovely new DS to arrive (with MANY thanks to Stephanie from TGPF for her kindness) and I am really looking forward to it. No scrap that it has JUST arrived!!
