I guess this is what happens, dear readers of the page, when I go to the gastro. I find out just how sick I actually am. My Crohn’s is active, we know that; but now, I find out I also have been walking around with c-diff for who knows how long!!! And I’m contagious, yay! I should clarify that being contagious with c-diff is a little different. Basically, every time I went to the bathroom, I would have to take disinfectant wipes to clean the toliet. With the amount of time I spend in the bathroom on the daily, it doesn’t make any sense for me to be at work with the potential to infect many people.
I started vancomycin last night, and will be on a rigorous schedule of antibiotics. In additon, I started taking methotrexate 1ml injections every week. Double yay! I swear, this is why people hate going to the doctor. It is an absolute pain in the ass and I always come out with more meds to take or some form of bad new. Phew!
C-diff is serious, and can land me in the hospital, or worse! Look it up y’all. It’s kind of a gross infection, and the treatment can involve feces, lol. I love my life!!!
