Triesta Stone


I had 3 surgeries leading to full shoulder replacement. Following septic shock. I was septic for 8 days before antibiotics. I am lucky to be alive, they say. (Sepsis and Surgery, Sepsis and Joint Replacements)

I’m left with no energy, kidney failure, nonalcoholic cirrhosis, PTSD, MDD [major depressive disorder], GAD [generalized anxiety disorder], night terrors, insomnia, hair loss ,pain every day.

I was a full time cosmetologist. I just got denied disability. I feel like giving up sometimes.
