my dad had Psittacosis and it wasnt treated for months as they cud not figure out what it was

he was in hospital in australia for 3 weeks then he was flown over to hospital in belfast ,where we live,and was confined to a wheel chair as he was so weak

it was 6 years ago and hes fine and dandy now now but as a result he has depression and chronic fatigue.i think there should be more awareness of this disease(Y)
