I survived mass sepsis after my appendix burst at fifteen. It was not caught in time and destroyed half of my reproductive system. (Sepsis and Appendicitis)
I went through months of post sepsis admits.

This past year I came down with a sore lymph node under my arm and I literally went to sleep from the pain at the end of April 2022. Finding myself waking up in the I.C.U. with a PICC line an open incision with a vacuum in it from having sepsis with necrotizing fasciitis. After many surgeries and a three week stay in the I.C.U. I was finally discharged.

I hope that someday people really understand what sepsis does to you.
