In 2019, I got sepsis through a UTI. I am also diabetic and when I got the UTI, instead of going to the doctor, I decided to wait and see if I could fight the infection myself. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections, Sepsis and Diabetes)

I never thought that I could get sepsis. I did not even know what sepsis was until I got it and did not think that I could get it from something as simple as UTI. However I am diabetic and it changes the map of things of things for me. Since having sepsis I have learned to take care myself, be healthy, and recognize when I need to go the doctor and get an antibiotic.
