Battles of the body and brain

First off I would like to say happy new year to everyone reading! I had a lovely time seeing in the new year at my local pub with friends despite being on IV's I was able to stay out until gone midnight by doing my night time dose slightly late! So far though, the new year hasn't been all too exciting and if anything I feel like I'm come to a standstill.

It's been a year now since I had to give up work due to my health and to say I miss it is an understatement. It is also a whole year that I have been on permanent IV antibiotics. These 2 things combined are starting to take their toll on my mental strength as you can imagine. My energy levels and lung function are getting lower and lower meaning I'm finding it harder and harder to go out and about to do things so I'm spending a lot of time in bed feeling rather fed up. I feel like my life is on pause whilst everyone else's is moving forward. I think this feeling has intensified over the last couple of weeks…
