If you haven't already, do talk through with your GP and explore non medicated options if that is your preference. Also, speak with a member of the support team at the UK Sepsis Trust - they are all trained nurses with experience in critical care, sepsis and sepsis recovery. give them a call on their freephone number 08088 000 029 Monday to Friday 9 – 4 pm Take care and keep in touch M
