I’ve succumbed to illness again, which I’ve managed to avoid since Christmas, when my family became ill with cold & flu symptoms. A couple of days ago I woke up with a tickle in my throat with a build-up of phlegm that has now gone on to my chest.
As soon as I get a cold, the mucus goes straight to my chest, which I have difficulty expelling and that results in respiratory problems. This chronic illness has been a problem for me for 21 years. I am thankful for the supplements I take, but worry about the long-term implications of what I deal with.
This is the part of my life that is an unknown quantity, because I’m not sure about the damage that may have been caused through these health issues. It’s a reality I live with everyday.
