I had sepsis. I was pregnant at the time, but I knew something wasn't right. So I went to the hospital told them my concerns and they sent me home with some antibiotics for a UTI. Went back the next day as I was sure something wasn't right, had a scan everything was fine so sent me home again. I went back that evening as something wasn't right, but they still dismissed me. So on Christmas eve I went into labour whilst at my parents of all places, so had to get an ambulance to the hospital, then the A&E department had a fetus at 20 weeks, got told I was septic, waited for another ambulance to transport me to the maternity ward and had a pretty crappy Christmas. I missed my daughter 1st Christmas, was surrounded by people be congratulated with babies, had salvation army play Christmas songs, which apparently have the word boy and baby a lot, which pissed me off more. I actually felt fine and not septic at all though. I was colder than normal, but I'm cold a lot so I just put it down to the weather.

That sounds awful and confusing!

But, I'm starting to understand that sepsis isn't something that is black and white...

Thankfully not but did about ten months of researching various body processes concerning mortal peril when I went through a morose spell of a second existential crisis thinking I was going to turn septic constantly, before that I thought I had a brain tumour lol. I remember once my arm was all flushed on one side and I forgot I had a scratch from the day before so assumed it was a sign I was heading for septic shock, I didn't realize I was doing my stretching and had just finished stretching that arm up so the blood was coming back, what a dope.
