@scared01 I hope they work as well..
If making phone calls is a thing that you can do, there's also the option of speaking to a nurse here: https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/
I know it's probably not as good as seeing your gp, but its a way to get advice tonight if something happens or you need/ want advice straight away.
Is there anything you would like?
I have spoken with my chemist though and have 2 really simple treatments that I can use to treat the new symptoms. after 4 doses one is starting to get abit better so am taking that as a good sign
Not good to hear that you have an infection Sounds like you've sourced treatment from your chemist though. Have you heard back from the doctor you saw?
Hope you're feeling well and taking care of yourself
I heard back from my gp and she said I didn't have to make another appointment to see her, she wrote a prescription out for the second dose though so just had to go and pick it up. a few more days on this one and the new one and then I should be ok.
Hey @scared01. That really sucks that your symptoms have come back. Illnesses can really take a toll on us not only physically but mentally as well, especially when they are unpredictable. How are you coping today with it? Its good to hear you have appointments booked and are on top of things in regards to your health! That's something that can get on top of us and become overwhelming sometimes.
im not really coping that well. theres so much happening here its hard to manage. really seems like it never ends. I feel like im always being a negative even though im trying my best to be happy or see the positives.
@scared01 It sounds like you are feeling really overwhelmed. Its completely okay to feel negative, its a natural response to have when things are not going well, I hope that isn't a source of guilt for you. When searching for the positives, don't forget those really small simple pleasures that we often overlook, try to focus in on those if its possible for you. Things like the warmth and sweetness of a nice hot chocolate, or watching dogs play in the park, or even just the scent of some nice lotion or something. Would it be helpful to discuss some of the issues that are playing on your mind today? We are all here for you and want you to express how your feeling whether its positive or negative
How do others cope with feeling overwhelmed?
