    Nervous 😟

    Just venting my anxiety. I’ve been in the hospital for almost a week. I was forced to come in to the ER when I woke with a 102 fever and palpitations much more severe than my usual POTS flutters. I was diagnosed with #Sepsis and #SIRS - scary. It took a while for the cultures to come back, but they finally narrowed the infection down to my #Port . Tomorrow I have to go down and have the port removed and have a #PiccLine placed so I can continue getting my #TPN . I’m not usually a nervous person, but I am so anxious about the removal. Could be some #PTSD related to IR and my j-tube days or just fear of the unknown (pain, sedation, etc.). Local anesthesia is not always effective for me so that’s one thing on my mind, plus I don’t like not having all the details ahead of time. 😟
    I’m sure I’ll be fine once it’s said and done but this on top of not feeling well has me 🤢

    My post is about the misconceptions that people have about #Diabetes . Why is it perceived as a uniquely silly disease? Why so many jokes? Did you know it kills more Americans each year than cancer and AIDS combined? Read the full post:
