Back in 2022 I was experiencing pain all over my body I was so sick that I thought I had the flu or even Covid. I went to the doctor. They couldn’t tell me what was wrong went back home and still felt worse.

I was feverish hot and cold. My hands were clammy, my speech was slurred, my skin was mottled, my lips were blue. I also had nausea and vomiting and was in a delusional state. I also couldn’t urinate for 24 hrs.

I went to the ER and was diagnosed with UTI and sepsis, was given antibiotics and discharged. (Sepsis and Urinary Tract Infections) I left the hospital and went home. Took the antibiotics, still wasn’t feeling well. I ended up going back to the hospital where I loss consciousness. They kept me in the hospital for a week give me more antibiotics and fluid because my bp was extremely low and my heart rate was high.

I was then told that I was going into septic shock had I not went to the hospital again, I would have died almost immediately. (Sepsis and Septic Shock) I am a sepsis survivor
