When Your Health Care Is Not Considered a 'Priority'

Reading now: 446

When I read a news article during the first year of the pandemic relating how doctors were being forced to decide which of their patients would get to live and who would die, I refused to believe that was true.

Now, I am experiencing firsthand that this new way of prioritizing urgent health care is actually real. I found out in June that I have pseudomonas aeruginosa in my lungs after a sputum culture was processed in the lab at my doctor’s request.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an aggressively opportunistic pathogen that is multi-antibiotic resistant. This bacteria produces a biofilm which most antibiotics are unable to penetrate to even get to the bacteria to kill it.
