I’ve had sepsis 3 times, in the last 3 yrs All started when I had a biopsy on my prostate. Constant UTI s and my mental heath is destroyed... I can’t cope with this any more... it’s a constant struggle... all aspects of my life is upside down . The trouble is no one really believes how scared I am when I get sepsis again.. 1st time was touch and go , nearly died.. what advice can anyone give? Any help will be welcomed

Hi there - thanks for sharing your story

 

You will find lots of support on this Forum - and people who have been through similar situations - near death sepsis is close to my story too

 

Lots of ways to get more help - here's a few - if you haven't already 

 

1 - Speak to someone at the Sepsis Trust - Call 0808 800 0029. They have trained clinicians and support staff

 

2 - If you prefer - drop a note into them via their page here

 

3 - Speak to you GP. Tell them your concerns and ask them what help they can provide in the community - medical and non medical. 

 

4 - Support Groups - Not sure where you are but there are a number of Sepsis support groups around the UK. Have a look at the page here and see if there is one local

 

And of course - read through the Forum here. It's sometimes comforting to know you're not alone and others in similar situations, will understand.

 

Do let us know how you get on and keep in touch

 

Wishes - Mark

Hi

 

The forum is a great way to find support, you soon realise that you are not on your own and many of the problems you are experiencing are common following sepsis.  Like Mark said you can call the sepsis helpline and speak to one of our trained nurses, they have a lot of experience of sepsis and the many problems that can occur after.  You can tell them what has been happening to you and ask any questions  you may have.  It can help just talking about what has happened and how you are feeling  now with someone who understands sepsis.

 

Kind regards

 

Larry
