Bad times in November

On the night of Friday 6th in to the early hours of Saturday 7th November , started a nasty period for me, this is how it unfolded in real time of then....

My body barely got over pneumonia, my lungs never fully recovered.  The injection for my back lowers my immune system, and it don't even make things better, it prevents it getting worse, but it won't get better. They won't even attempt an operation as I'm not bad enough. I am stuck in an agonising rut, with no view of getting out of it. Same goes with my neck, and a trapped nerve. I can be in agony with it on and off. When it starts I am in great pain and also get numbness, right down the arm and around the upper back, neck and shoulder areas. It
