Survivor

In October 2008 I started getting chills and body aches, I thought it was just a typical flu bug, boy was i wrong. 3 days after feeling ill I started hallucinating, and within a couple hours I couldn’t walk anymore, so my husband rushed me to the emergency.

2 hours after arriving I lost consciousness. When I came to I was told I was put on a ventilator for 2 weeks as i had double pneumonia and sepsis. (Sepsis and Pneumonia) they had to do fluid resuscitation and my blood oxygen level was 38. I wasn’t supposed to live but I did. It took over a year for recovery and I still have residual effects.
