This is probably way too much personal information, but 2 weeks ago (Aug. 30th) I was diagnosed with my first ever Urinary Tract Infection, at the age of 25. The doctor gave me a 3 day prescription, which seemed to work - until the day after I stopped taking it. I went back, and was given a 7 day prescription of a different drug, which didn't work, and which caused some major side effects. On Friday (Sept. 11th) I went to the doctor again, and was given a 3rd drug, on another 7 day prescription. I have now been on this third drug for 3 days, and there's no relief - infact, I think my symptoms are getting worse.
I am really freaking out. I am scared to death, that this infection is completely unresponsive to oral treatments and that I'm going to be hospitalized over this, or even worse. I'm 1500km away from my family (at university) I live on my own, so even thought I'm in a lot of pain, I still need to get on public transit (which hurts things even more) and do my errands. I was keeping things upbeat, but that last two days, I've gotten really depressed over it.
Even if this was my second, or third UTI, I would probably feel better. But since this is my first time going through this, and it's been so hard, and I don't know what's going to happen next I am just so completely scared.
What if it doesn't go away? What's is going to happen to me?
This is a very personal rant which is highly unlike me. But I felt the need to reach out to a community of somekind for support.
