Think Fungus: Think About the Impact on Patients Lives (Tuesday)

Diary of Jill who lives with aspergillosis, in her own words.

Tuesday

Another day and another morning sorting my medication. This is the start to every day sorting this lot. I will explain more each day as to what everything is. Every morning I have to do my nebuliser with 3 different drugs, I also have to do physio to get rid of all the secretions in my lungs so I can breathe. This has to be done before anything else and when I have appointments sometimes I am up at 5.30 am just to do this and have a rest as it can be exhausting.
