Survivor

Five months ago my life changed forever. I awoke unable to walk, talk, and as my blood pressure bottomed, my face turned purple then blue. I was rushed to the ER where they discovered my IUD caused me to develop toxic shock syndrome and DIC. (Sepsis and Toxic Shock Syndrome, Sepsis and DIC) These deadly bacteria gave me a 1% chance of survival.

I was transferred to another hospital to have both hands amputated. (Sepsis and Amputations) I then spent another 10 days. During the worldwide corona virus. I went through all this alone no one could come in or go out. I am still recovering and healing from this nightmare. I saw stories like mine and would love to share experiences
God Bless.
