Jul 11, 2019 · Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) - Let's talk in Intensive Care (ICU)

Wow. That is too good to be true! So close. Thank you for sharing and yes I am happy to have found this support system as well.

Jul 11, 2019 · Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) - Let's talk in Intensive Care (ICU)

I went in for a routine hysterectomy and woke up three months later on a ventilator after the obgyn knicked my small bowel and left me to languish in outpatient recovery for 24 hours leading to septic shock ARDS and cardiac arrests and many other traumatic events in the ICU. It has been two years and a long road to recovery. Mentally I am at my wits end. I am in Atlanta but can not find any psychiatric care that is specialized in helping me mentally recover. Emory one of the largest systems in the city has not been accepting new patients for almost one year now. I am an attorney but it is very difficult to get out of bed most days. Can anyone help me with a referral to a doctor who treats PICS? I was thinking Hopkins or Mt. Sinai. I feel like i will never enjoy my life again as an active participant.
