Feeling sorry for myself...

I don't know if anyone remembers my last two posts about being ill with a chest infection, but the condition has deteriorated somewhat. For two months I have been coughing and wheezing constantly, and my chest is now so tight that the pain is almost unmanageable. I've been through two courses of antibiotics (useless) and one course of steroids (helpful but over very quickly) and I use an inhaler (helpful in the short-term) - I am not asthmatic but the infection has tightened my bronchial tubes in a way that has created asthmatic symptoms. I had to go to A&E a few weeks ago as my breathing got so bad one night, and I had an X-ray this morning.

Can you tell me stories about the last time you were ill for a prolonged period of time? I know two months is nothing in comparison to what some people have had to go through, but God this illness is getting me down. If you don't have any stories to share, can you please post pictures or gifs of animals to cheer me up? Thanks!
