I was in 2 grade 3 (there is no grade 1 or 2, grade 3 usually ends in a vegetive state or death) Comas with Sepsis, pneumonia, Mrsa and kidney failure. I was given a 1-2% survival rate, my family were told I was going to die. It’s now 4 months since I came home and I’m slowly recovering. I’ve been left with short term memory loss, which I’ve been told will most likely be permanent, but that’s a small price to pay. I have just been diagnosed with PTSD, with severe depression and severe anxiety. I can’t take any medication, that’s part of the PTSD. However I will be starting cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) soon so I’m hoping that helps the PTSD. I’ve also joined various groups on Facebook for Sepsis and ITU. Sometimes it helps to talk to others that have been through similar experiences. Sepsis really is the gift that keeps on giving.....unfortunately! However it’s all a small price to pay, considering. I wish everyone well in their continued recoveries x
