Can't believe I am posting this, but feel like I need to off load a bit
I am 32 years old, was completely healthy, went on holiday lost my unborn child to sepsis-went in to septic shock and almost died myself from ARDS.
I was in ICU for a week, the staff really cared for me, but I am struggling to come to terms with any of it, its something that I will discuss with my doctor but I am suffering from fatigue, bereavement. I am burying my baby tomorrow, I was 18 weeks pregnant and after 2 previous miscarriages it is utterly devastated us.
I know I am lucky, I know how poorly I was and how others here have lost loved ones to this cruel illness, I am just in the throws of all this emotion and go from feeling very lucky, to very depressed and guilty. I will probably be attending one of the support groups when I am feeling a little better, its just a strange feeling that so much happened in such a short time, no doctor would sign me off to come home at first so its been a very dramatic experience as you can imagine, I just want to speak to people who have been through similar experiences themselves.
