Sepsis is very dangerous. I was real sick had fever, chills, headache, shortness of breath.

I had got it from not taking care of urinary infections I had may be a year ago. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections) It was the worst feeling ever I felt, no energy, no life, crying, headaches, fever.

I had it for a bout 5 months before I realized I had it. I didn’t know what it was. The pain was so severe nothing would take this pain away until I couldn’t take it. An ambulance came to my mom’s house and took me to the hospital. My kids were scared and so was my mother. When I got to the hospital I was impatient to see a doctor.

In two days I had a letter in the mail from the hospital, saying that I needed to return as soon as possible, so when I contacted the hospital they admitted me for about 3 weeks. On a breathing machine and and IV, it was terrible. Now I feel like it comes and goes. There’s times when I get headaches that make me feel the same way.
