For example I had bacterial keratitis. A bacterium called Pseudomonas had entered my eye. When keratitis first entered my eyes, I couldn't sleep at night due to pain, so I stopped wearing lenses 2 or 3 days before keratitis occurred. My eyes really hurt like they were going to pop out in the first days of the disease. And I could never look at the sun. One time I involuntarily rubbed my eyes with my hands a little bit, I guess this increased the keratitis even more. My eyes were hurting so much that for several days I could hardly even move from my place because of the pain in my eyes. However, the first ophthalmologist I went to, even though I showed all the symptoms of keratitis, did not give me the correct and effective medications and did not understand that I had keratitis. The next day I had a white spot in my eye. Since the doctor was bad, he realized that I had keratitis at that time and referred me to another ophthalmologist. My eyes were red when I went to the other eye doctor, and when I first went, eye drops were dripped into my eyes at intervals of 5,10 minutes for 1 hour to remove the bacteria from my eyes. Later, as the bacteria started to go away from my eyes, the dose of the eye drops was reduced. Since we were a little late to the hospital, the scar of the keratitis is still in my left eye, but that scar is almost too small to be seen with the naked eye. My right eye has not had keratitis and my left eye sees almost as like as my right eye. I can only see at night traffic lights as if the lights are scattering a little more due to the trace of keratitis with my left eye, but now my right eye is almost no different from my left eye. I would be happier if my eye degrees were 00.00. And if I'd been late to the eye hospital any longer, my eye could have looked like in the this pictures. These are photos of other people who have had my illness:

Oh ouch, sorry that is happening.
I currently am going through a blood infection, called Endocarditis, rare and uncommon where I somehow got bad bacteria in my blood stream, and it caused a heart valve infection and I need six weeks of IV antibiotics.
I have a bad heart, people with healthy hearts this doesn't happen to.
The morality rate is 20% on this, so I'd say that is pretty high risk.
I am two weeks through the IV antibiotics though, so 1/3rd through it and I hope I make it the rest.4
Thank God I never experience this, but I wish you the best in getting better :) ((hugs))0
Oh my. have not had anything high risk as you described. Good luck with it.0

The one good thing about having jacked-up eyes is that you can save money on Halloween costumes.0
I don't think I've had any high risk diseases. I've had some decent level serious injuries tho, lots of fractures and stitches0
Got impetigo on my left elbow in high school, are away some of the flesh.0
Nothing like that, no.0
Pneumonia. My right lung got infected0
When my son was 18 he came down with bacterial meningitis. That was the initial diagnosis. Then he got septicemia - blood poison. Double pneumonia too. Then came the diagnosis of bacterial endocarditis which after many weeks of IV antibiotics still caused him to have emergency open heart surgery. He had to have his mitral valve replacement with a titanium valve. The infection ate some of his hearts muscle, so he had to have a bovine (cow) paracardial patch sewed on to his heart.
He had numerous blood and plasma transfusions, lost 40 pounds and was just skin and bones, had 3 spinal taps, lost hearing in right ear, and other things. He spent 76 days in the hospitals.
He has to be on blood thinners for the rest of his life. And monthly blood tests to check if his blood is too thin or too thick. This too is for the rest of his life.
I hope you get cured with antibiotics. He wasn't so lucky. 💔
