I have been in hospital three times since December with pneumonia, tonsilitis (!) and flu. Twice I had sepsis and my kidneys went crazy apparently.

I was 100% well at my last discharge a couple of weeks ago.

This morning I woke up and my chest was wheezing like mad a few coughs and a bit of time last it was a lot better but I do have a wheezes thing right at the top of my chest/ bottom of my throat and feel tired.

That's it I am totally well otherwise.

But I am totally terrified of the fact that I seem totally unable to fight of any illness lately!

So give it to me straight, aibu to take to my bed (or couch) and the very slightest thing now to try to just not get ill again .

I should add this would be disruptive we have 6 children under 10 so dh would have to work from home and come home early today. He can as he works for a company we own but as I say disruptive for everyone. He my otherwise be home until 10pm

I am being unreasonable aren't I...... Or am I hmmblush

I'd say no, you're doing right. If it's anything like the ache / cold / cough thing I've had four the last 4 days. Yesterday was the first time in nearly 9 years that I felt too ill to b/feed. daughter is 2 so managed just fine but I have taken to my bed between school runs and said daughter has watched loads of cbeebies cuddled next to me. I'm hoping to feel more normal tomorrow.

But if you've had all that since xmas, you obviously need to rest. Maybe a short rest today might prevent it becoming worse?

Rest! Don't over do it and wreak yourself flowers

was going to say yes you are being unreasonable but having read all the health problems youve had recently i would say rest and look after your self as you ending up back in hospital will be more disruptive than you keeping yourself well

Well I tried my best but sadly by the time I decided to call dh he had gone into a meeting so won't be out until around 5 anyway! I am just doing he bare minimum and I'm going to get an early night.
