    In the Royal Sussex County hospital

    The last few hours have felt all like a blur but at about 10pm tonight I started coughing up blood and feeling like I was going to choke to death. A very, very frightening experience.

    I called an ambulance and was talked into coming down to Brighton. I'm on my own now, just staring at monitors. I was very reluctant at coming down from Haywards Heath. My mother came with me in the ambulance but has now gone home.

    I'm so scared. I don't know how long I'm going to be living this nightmare. Nothing seems to be happening.

    I just want to die right now. I'm so sorry. I don't want to upset anyone.

      Hang in there, fella.
      The first rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club.
      The second rule of Fight Club is don't let Audley Harrison in, unless it's ladies night.

      Things always seem worse in the small hours. Hospitals are unsettling places at the best of times. You’re in the right place and you’ll know more in the morning. Nothing happens at night in hospital but I’m sure they’ll be on it first thing.
      All the best, hang tough.

      Stay strong, mate. If I was closer to your location I would come see you. When in hospital you need a friend to sit by your side.

      I've been sedated and feel a bit calmer. Sleep is impossible with all the blood tests and noise though.

      I went for an x-ray and I have a lump on my right hand side of my chest. At this stage they're not sure what they're dealing with. They did say a chest infection could well be the cause so I have to stay positive and upbeat.

      Thank you to everyone on NSC who has contributed and help me through it. I'm not ashamed to say I absolutely blubbed my eyes out earlier.

      I'll keep everyone updated later on today. Sorry for my strong emotions earlier.

      NSC really is full of amazing people. Reading through the lovely responses has been very comforting.

      God bless you all.

      No shame whatsoever, and absolutely no need to apologize to anyone. There's both a time for stiff upper lip and just letting it all out.
      Hope for the best case scenario, definitely the time of the year for any kind of chest infection eh.

      Fingers crossed for your results, and keep in touch.
