Have I improved since my last post? I dunno.
As the experts recommend – you should reboot IF:
- You can’t access memory- or you’re having memory leaks
- You’re performance is too slow
- You have low-level error messages
- Some of your applications are NOT responding
- You’re freezing up
- You need to fix your bugs.
These all seem to apply
The glimmer I saw a few months ago has turned pretty murky lately. It seems the worse I feel – the more I learn- and then, I feel worse! Does that even make sense?
My cognitive issues don’t seem worse – but they are no better. Muscle and tendon pain is a lot WORSE – even after bilateral bursa steroid injections. Torn tendons, Tarlov cysts, spinal tumors, sacroiliac pain is off the charts most days. Lately, peripheral neuropathy too. I’m working with a PT- but I’m somehow going nowhere- so I’m putting it on hold for now.
I’m going to share some post sepsis statistics and facts with you- just in case this happens to you too.
Minnesota Hospital Association:
Sepsis survivors have impaired quality of life as long as 5 years.
Most survivors are left with major new deficits- both functional and cognitive.
Patients who survive have a higher risk for mortality for at least 4 years.
Survivors are left with major memory problems and physical limitations for years after their initial infection.
There are more than 1.7 million cases of sepsis every year in the US. Survivors often face long term effects post-Sepsis, including amputations, anxiety, memory loss, chronic pain, fatigue, disabling muscle and joint pain, and more……
Neurological complications of sepsis symptoms include: polyneuropathy and myopathy. May include organ failure, damage to peripheral nerves and skeletal muscles.
CDC: Long term effects
Insomnia, Nightmares or vivid hallucinations, disabling muscle and joint pain, decreased cognitive function, loss of self-esteem, organ dysfunction, amputation.
Now you know why I need a reboot. Cuz this is not going so well. I need a new plan. So I’ll use SPRING as a springboard.
It’s a time of rebirth for body and soul, and hopefully, recovery.
“Spring is a natural resurrection, an experience in immortality.” Henry David Thoreau
I have to work on a new plan
