I am honoured to welcome Emily Pankhurst. Emily is a survivor of that dreadful illness, sepsis. All too often, sepsis kills. But, as Emily's story shows, if the right treatment is carried out in time, it's not a death sentence. But you do need to act FAST -- time is of the essence.
A Sepsis Survivor's Story,
by Emily Pankhurst
I am currently studying my final year in criminology at University of Kent in England. Between December 2015 and January 2016, I was going through an extremely stressful time of trying to complete deadlines for essays and everything got on top of me.
I started complaining of tiredness/fatigue, high temperature and constant headaches, which I believed was stress related. However, down below I noticed abnormal discharge appear straight after regular my period ended.
