Anybody else in self isolation?
« on: March 17, 2020, 09:14:34 PM »
Yes another Covid 19 thread, sorry, my Mrs (aged over 70) has not been very well for the past 3 to 4 days and is staying indoors as I am (nothing else to do). No idea if she has the virus or not, Government advice suggested that cases like hers is that she doesn´t contact our GP or phone 111, no test required until presumably she becomes more poorly, at which stage maybe too late, surely there must be an alternative solution? Anybody else in a similar situation?

Wishing for a speedy recovery for your missus Dave. Have you got anyone on the outside to help you with anything you need mate, if not I’m sure one of us must live close to you who could help out from time to time

Best wishes Dave.

 :plus one:

Hope your Mrs. makes a swift recovery, Dave.

It could be the mental stress that's getting to her - i think this affecting us all.

Hopefully it's nothing serious. Important if you can be in touch with people  around who you can talk to, and will be able to help.

I think this is a time when we need to pull together, and i think most people are, and want to help each other.

All the best for your wife, and of course you.
Let's hope it's not as bad as it perhaps could be.
Cheers

My sincere best wishes to your wife, and I hope she feels better soon Davew and recovers and gets back into shape. Worrying times and no doubt there are more challenges ahead for many of us.
You can never be too vigilant, stay safe.

Dave yes your Mrs is unwell and it must be horrible to have to wait and watch but there is very little to do for a virus and it is only if her breathing becomes laboured that doctors can help. Hopefully it won’t get that bad as hospitals are a nightmare at the moment. But keep giving her plenty of liquid and keep her comfortable and if you are worried 111 straight away. Keep well yourself mate

Not me but my parents both had/have it. Mum is calling the hospital today as she's been ill for a while now.

Also have some friends who are in self-isolation up north.

Scary times.

Sorry to hear that your wife is unwell and hope there is improvement soon.
 One disturbing thought is that she may not have the virus but is suffering from something else that is treatable. If she continues to deteriorate then think about calling 111 that should result in an ambulance and admission to hospital.
The paramedics are magnificent and even if they don't suggest the hospital they will give a good diagnosis.
