encountered recent bout of intestinal illness

May 03, 2016 - 2 comments

The recent bout of illness probably was acquired from my own stupidity.... of hanging around person with chronic cough.  So far it is intestinal with a dry nonproductive cough.  Unfortunately it seemed to pass to my pet feline too.  I euthanized her because her system was killing her.  She had a chest cavity full with pus.  I am still battling this virus (approx 7 days now).

I really miss my cat, but a life of tubes and system flushes with no for sure cure, did not sound like quality life for a pet that didn't like to be picked up.

I personally feel like a failure in the care of my pet but since I can't control illnesses that are going around how would I know how or what care to do as a non-medical person.  Oh, my grief is deep.

I've looked up the term for the random 'rash' the slowly creeps my body since exposure in 2013.  Petechia.

It s amazing to see peoples attitude when you inform them of illness and educate them on what their doctor fails to educate them on their own contagiousness.... the blame me, the messenger, as if I am the only "carrier" of this ancient and worldly virus.  Even a "teacher" i know think she is expert in everything.  Funny how people I have not seen for years... who have had family die from oncogenic virus, think I'm the carrier... I wasn't even around their family when they were alive!  Human behavior is so self preserving, it is funny to watch it unfold.
