TOPIC: The story of my death

The story of my death 2 Weeks, 4 Days ago  
So we had two filming days (all we can afford on limited tiny budget but includes venues, actors, crew, staff, transport and much, much more) and I had to open our gates to let camera, sound etc park in our mews. By the time they arrived I'd bathed and was in my dressing gown but no problem (only two minutes outside) except it decided to pour with rain. So we managed the filming successfully but I felt my throat going. Sure enough by Saturday, filming over, the cold arrived. Fine, I thought; a couple of days in bed with Paracetamol. But it lasted a week. Got worse. Loads of phlegm. Second week - I decided to summon Doctor. Blood test; chest check; rushed to hospital. Hugely expensive (thousands). Dozens of stupid needles taking blood (I hate that) and giving me intravenous antibiotics. Pneumonia. Hospitals wrap everything in plastic (cleanliness) which means my body temperature goes through the roof and I can't sleep a wink. Plus being woken every few hours (not that I had any sleep to wake from). So hospital damn near killed me. Luckily the drugs worked - just finished another week of oral anti-B's. Supercold? Negative Covid tests every day. I reckon a combination of mutating viruses (they don't tell us about) and reaching - nearly - 77. But I'm still here.

A combination of mutating viruses, maybe not; despite the absence of a covid profile, it shouldn't be ruled out and may be in the mix. Mutations are becoming more regular and frequent.

My three jabbed friend, and fit young person, was infected by covid; the three inoculations made his recovery easier. Your post indicates some covid symptoms.

So much about the covid virus is unknown/uncertain, and we should all continue to be vigilant. With all possibilities considered; many countries are considering lockdowns again.

They would not let me into the hospital if I'd had positive Covid tests.

I wish you well, and am sure you'll be fine next week. But which covid did they test for? Its mutating ability is the most worrying aspect.

Every variant tested for (the proper blood test). Every day. Another pain.

All viruses mutate all the time: why are you worrying about this virus in particular? Why are you so worried about its mutations? What "aspect" worries you so much given it is so largely mild in effect?

Just wondering?

Sorry to hear this. It sounds nasty. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

You say that the treatment cost (you?) thousands. Don't you use the NHS?

Good luck trying to be seen. I can't even get the quarterly cortisone injections for my ankles. I haven't had them for 18 months now. But there's plenty of slots for Covid jabs, I'll pass on those thank you.

My doctor surgery don't even pick up the phones when they do it's for "case of emergencies only."

NHS is dead and A&E is the shed belonging to the Grim Reaper. If you're a peasant you're going to die early, if I was 77 year old, I know I only have about 5 years to live anyway.

I do use the NHS Jo, for certain things. They were terrific for my Pfizer three jabs and my flu and pneu jabs (not that they worked). I suspect there are mutating viruses around about which we are not being told (and experts seem uninformed about).

Yes flu viruses do mutate and there are numerous types of colds.

well that's a worry but glad you survived.

I have no doubt that nature competes with man as far as viruses go and always wins.

The planet is over crowded (although apparently the entire world's population would still fit into New Zealand (what fun for them).

But Mother Nature always wins and punishes man for not respecting this very pretty planet.

I notice in my small building the amount of garbage is increasing rapidly. Viruses have been around since the year dot.

Yes I do find it odd that most private hospitals won't let Covid carriers or sufferers into their wards. Had I tested positive I would have been shunted into an NHS place. Despite BUPA, Blue Cross and the other insurance companies, this, apparently, is the new society (I can't speak for outside the UK).

When I saw the title of this thread, Mr King, for one horrible moment I thought the worst had happened , and that you had prepared a statement beforehand, which sounds like the sort of thing you might do!

I am so very glad you are ok, but I DID tell you to put tea tree oil in your ears!
