Congrats! It's SUPER MRSA!-Day 615

This last visit the dermatologist decided to swab my nose, and take a culture of one of the boils, saying she was going to get it checked for MRSA and to see what other orals I can take...It came back positive and she put me on another round of antibiotics but it didn't get rid of it. This last visit she swabbed and cultured again, and is going to give me a referral to a specialist.

I've had an infection since OCTOBER! Had she done a proper culture the first time I went to see her maybe all of this could've been avoided. Now because of her I've worked up a resistance to almost all oral antibiotics, she even put me on antibiotics that have proven to have no effect on MRSA like Keflex etc. She wants to send me to a disease specialist, basically saying she's done and can't handle this. I have to wait 3-5 days for the culture to come back before I can even schedule an appointment with the Infectious Disease specialist and we all know how long a wait is for a specialty doctor is in the US. People DIE before they are treated and receive the help they need!

 I feel awful, I feel like this is the beginning again. No matter what I do I just can't get this under control.  No matter what I put above my lip it weeps.

So now it's the waiting game....

 While I slowly get worse...

I avoided posting my progress for months now, almost avoiding writing in this blog. I had a someone comment on a lot of my posts bullying me, and belittling me, and condescending to me, saying they knew better. While they may have had a point that my skin was more seroius than I thought I didn't apprecatite the way they talked to me.

It takes a lot of courage to post these pictures and write about my experience, and someone tries to shoot me down further than I already am. I didn't make this blog so people could treat me poorly.
