fit as a fiddle
I was very lucky. Was discharged after 5 days with a diagnosis of FUO (fever of unknown origin)
The CDC called me 3 days later and asked me to participate in the original study.
Back then when you had a temp over 104 (as an adult) they drew blood and sent to the CDC (I lived in Atlanta)
They confirmed TSS, so I was one of the first
I've never really had any complications from it and made a complete recovery
they gave me no antibiotics, just fever reducers and Ice baths
Hey, it just wasn't my time to go

Cool, glad there were no repercussions.

Toxic Shock Syndrome. Often times it
comes up when tampons are used, especially when they are not changed often enough.
