Hello  All,

 

I'm a recent survivor of Sepsis, and would like to say hello to the community.  I've actually learnt more here than was provided by the professionals. Certainly when it comes to post sepsis  symptoms, and I put it all down to stress!

Thanks Mark, I've since spoken to Larry on the help line and he has made sense for me of all the strange post sepsis symptoms. To think I put it all down to stress and anxiety!

Hi Hamrock,

I'm a severe sepsis survivor too and found the forum on the trust website and a conversation with Larry invaluable. 

Can I ask what the tile of the post is for, Fresh Fish? Its intriguing!

Thanks Rachel

Hi Rachel,

 

"Fresh Fish", yes it it's a term used for somebody newly joining a unit or a body.  Hence the use, sorry I didn't mean to be so enigmatic!

 

Yes Larry was extremely helpful. I wish the medics were a little bit more forthcoming, although I can understand that they are not in the prophesy business.

Does anybody on the forums use any form of relaxation  exercise  to aid their recovery?  If so what works for you?  I would be most interested as I have been subject to palpitations and find them difficult to deal with.  It's worse after any form of activity and on waking in the morning.  I also have heart failure which it not helpful.

 

Thanks for reading.

Hello Hamrock,

 

Generally, I find any sort of relaxation or exercise is helpful.  Physically I'm in pretty good shape now, but can get mentally fatigued quite easily.

 

You might find yoga and / or mindfulness / meditation helpful.  Some forms of yoga can be quite physical but other are much more gentle and relaxing.  Usually you can just participate to your ability and focus on breathing though.

 

Mindfulness or mediation is also easy and should help.  Generally it just involves sitting still and concentrating on your breathing or concentrating on parts of your body.  There are lots of apps (e.g. Calm, Headspace) and resources on the internet (youtube) that can get you started at least, so I'd suggest trying that.

 

Matt
