Back in September, I was diagnosed with MRSA. The dr's gave me a round of antibotics and that was it. They acted like once I was done with that round of antibotics I would be cured. Even when I went back several visits with health issues, nothing was said about MRSA. Since last September I have had boils and sores constantly no matter how often I bathe. I have tried every weird remedy I have read about online. I even tried bathing in bleach. Now I find out MRSA can kill you even if you aren't old or very young or sick to start with. I have had numerous health issues since last September and at no point did anyone indicate that it could have been from MRSA.
I have decided to take matters in hand and learn all I can online about this disease and how to get over it. I just turned 40 and my granddaughter will be 1 this month. I am not ready to die yet.
Here is something from the Mayo Clinic about MRSA.
MRSA infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called "staph." MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It's a strain of staph that's resistant to the broad-spectrum antibiotics commonly used to treat it. MRSA can be fatal.

Most MRSA infections occur in hospitals or other health care settings, such as nursing homes and dialysis centers. It's known as health care-associated MRSA, or HA-MRSA. Older adults and people with weakened immune systems are at most risk of HA-MRSA. More recently, another type of MRSA has occurred among otherwise healthy people in the wider community. This form, community-associated MRSA, or CA-MRSA, is responsible for serious skin and soft tissue infections and for a serious form of pneumonia.

I have CA-MRSA.
