My new life


Dear Readers

As you might know, I haven’t been much online since my hospital stay last Summer. I didn’t write much about the reason back then, because I thought it was over, when I went home again. Unfortunately this was not the case.

The illness, as I was hit by last year was Q-fever. I never heard about that illness before and the doctors used around 1 1/2 month to find out, what was wrong, before I heard about this. I hoped for a treatment, as would work, then become better and go home to recover. I got hard antibiotics from day 1 to avoid every illness. I was in coma and didn’t notice much. After 2 months I went home to start my new life. Short time after, I lost mostly of my hair. I’m not a woman, who use hours for make-up and smart clothe in my daily life, I live more relaxed and thrive better in nice and comfortable clothe. But to loose my hair did hurt a lot, I have used many years to get so long and big hair. Then again, I’m happy and grateful just to survive, just wished, that someone would have told me, this could happen too.

I have been visiting the hospital very regular for new blood tests and in June, they found out, that the illness from last year, Q-fever, now was chronic attacking my body and I went to several tests and was and still am in treatment with strong antibiotics again and will probably need this for at least 1 1/2 to 5 years daily. I will not get totally rid of this illness, but I hope that the doctors are able to keep it in control for many years

The doctors told me, that I could have got this illness from either a neighbor, who got herself a baby goat without veterinary checks or from sheep a little more far away. I don’t know and I can’t change it anyway, so I choose to live my life like it is now

As you might understand, this was a kick of the bad ones to get to know. After the coma last year, I needed to start all over, from learning to eat, walking etc. by myself to everything else. Plus process what happened while I was in coma, which were a lot. I didn’t expect this to demand so much time, but I found out, that it easily could demand up to 2 years to find myself after the coma

I have been missing blogging and specially all my lovely friends in here. Some of you have been writing to ask, how life was going, which made me very happy, even if I didn’t have the energy to answer each of you. I will do my best to blog on regular base again and I’m looking forward to come around and visit your blogs, please be patient, I will reach you too 😀

Remember to enjoy life – while you can

  1. I have read some comments and learned that you started feeling better, Irene. Hopefully you get stronger during the summer. Also, the medical science is always developing, and hopefully they will find a cure to put an end to this illness. My friend had been fighting hepatitis C for decades, but recently she got a new drug, and after 6 month of treatment she is free of the virus. It is absolutely incredible.
    Wishing you all the best!
