C-Diff is a very common problem in hospitals, a lot of times it is caused by too high a dose of antibiotics or being on them for too long. You can pick it up very easily most times from the staff, cross contamination (MRSA & C-Diff have the same issue, they are super contagious). Just be thankful that you only picked up C-Diff and not MRSA.
Anytime you have a bathroom problem (loose #2) they will put you on a BRAT diet and clear fluids. It's not as good as government cheese to bind you up but it gets the job done.
Welcome to the club brother just make sure to take your Type II very serious, as you found out it can be a killer (or in your case thank god an almost killer). It can also mess with and cause complications in almost every other system in your body. It is going to be a bit of a shock and a life changer for you, but you can do it and control it.
You really are lucky to be alive.
Also, if they try to put you on Actos for your sugars do not do it. While it works it causes bladder cancer. Two family members have been on it and both ended up with bladder cancer.
God bless and Merry Christmas

I am back at work and have been since early January. I drink a Kefir probiotic shake every morning and am now walking without a cane. I walk laps around my workplace now instead of smoking and stretch every night. My tendons are still extremely tight but I can now step over a baby gate which I couldn't do a month ago. Today one of my old students came by and mentioned how much muscle I lost. (Truth or not, it sucks having it pointed out).
Currently I am dealing with sudden stabbing pains in my back as well as tactile sensitivity in my legs, back, feet and hands. Hoping it will go away soon. In the meantime I have Neuragen cream which seems to work pretty well. I was originally given a year to get back to where I was, but I am hoping and working to do it in 6 months. In a year I want to be in GREAT shape. I still can't lift weights but I can do pushups, leg-lifts and crunches. So, all in all I am doing pretty well considering they thought I was going to die back in October then again in December.
