I thought my not urinating was caused by my back injury.
I thought what I was experiencing was a loss of bladder sensation caused by damaged nerves.
I didn’t realise that what was actually happening was my kidneys were shutting down due to severe infection caused by my wound on my ankle where I had surgery.
If I’d known this I would have sought help much sooner.
As it is I am doomed to die this slow agonising death by Septic Shock.
Each night I go to bed praying I won’t wake up.
Please let tonight be my last.
