I felt guilty that I had survived septic shock, and bewildered by the side effects that left me physically tired and with cognitive problems. I battles insomnia as my mind tried desperately to piece together missing days. I was unable to connect with other septicemia survivors until I found Sepsis Alliance on the internet. It started with a few email exchanges with other survivors, and has blossomed into a network of supporters who have helped me overcome my negative feelings about surviving, and provided encouragement as I improve physically. At the same time, I have learned more about recognizing the early symptoms of septicemia. I have made efforts to personally contact friends who have loved ones in the hospital, especially those battling infections of any kind, with information about recognizing symptoms and asking health care providers is they have a sepsis protocol to follow. This condition causes far too many deaths, especially in hospitalized patients, and this organization helps save lives by disseminating information and helps enrich lives by giving the survivors a voice.
