Khloe Kardashian contracts staph infection, goes on a bed-ridden Twitter rant


Ugh, I hate complicated Twitter-beef stories. They’re a bitch to sort through. Alright, let’s start at the beginning. Khloe Kardashian has canceled her book tour, or put it on hold or something. The reason for the cancelation? She’s contracted a staph infection from being at Lamar’s bedside at Cedars-Sinai in LA. Is she really there enough to get an infection? Apparently. And quite honestly, this is one of the reasons why I hate going to hospitals – I feel like germs and bacteria are all around. (Sidenote: at the gym yesterday, a trainer hovered over me, talking about how she thinks she’s getting sick and I wanted to say “THEN GET THE HELL AWAY FROM ME YOU GERMY BITCH.”)

So, Khloe is sick. She’s getting some bed rest and drinking fluids and she’s taking a lot of antibiotics. And I guess she’s just staying in bed, obsessively checking her Twitter. Yesterday, Khloe responded to a series of trolling tweets from “fans” who hate the fact that she’s a married woman with a boyfriend. Like… is that the most offensive thing? Anyway, here’s what happened, mostly Khloe responding to people slamming her for dating James Harden while still married to Lamar.

After commenting on new boyfriend James Harden’s latest basketball game, Khloe Kardashian got called out by fans for having more than one man in her life.

“You can’t be with harden and still be married fam, gotta chose one,” one Twitter user wrote.

“For better or worse sickness and health till death do them part. I’m with you she needs to pick one or the ou,” replied another.

Kardashian was not impressed. “Divorce is still going forward. Doesn’t mean I won’t be there through sickness and health. I’ve proven that,” she replied. “You should have said those to the man who went against all our vows. Judge yourself. F–k off.”

“But you just with him to look good for the media, you think we don’t know?” chimed in another Twitter user.

“Ummmmm how does that look good in the media?” retorted Kardashian. “He wasn’t picking roses my friend. Get off my d-ck,” she answered swiftly.

“I think the painkillers I’m on and tweeting is probably not the best thing,” she admitted. “Signing off…. Antibiotics +painkillers + tweeting does not equal anything good lol.”

[From Us Weekly]

I like that she’s holding firm about the divorce going forward. To me, that makes her actions towards Lamar and her actions on his behalf more authentic. Like, she’s still going to take care of herself but she’s also going to be there for Lamar for whatever he needs. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. I mean, do I believe that Khloe has milked her situation in the press? For sure. But that doesn’t mean that she’s just trying to make the best of a really exhausting and difficult situation.

    Nosocomial infections are no joke.

    • Whitney says:

      Seriously, hospital-acquired infections are terrifying.

      • Sabrine says:

        My mother-in-law, in the hospital with a broken hip, had a room mate with MRSA. Once that was discovered, they whisked my MIL out of there into isolation so we had to gown up and put on masks to visit her. Luckily she dodged that bullet. But a little later C-difficile ran rampant through the hospital and she was sick with that for days. Of course there’s also staph which Khloe got. If you want to get sick, visit the hospital. There’s a good chance you’ll catch something there. Use the sanitary hand cleaner if you touch anything and definitely on the way out.

    • LadyMTL says:

      For real! A few years ago my mom was in the hospital and every time I would go to visit I’d be literally cringing away from anyone who passed who looked remotely sick. Even just sitting with her in her room, I’d be using disinfecting gel like a madwoman. I know I was overreacting but the very idea of contracting anything was scaring me witless.

  2. TheOtherMaria says:

    I got a staff infection one year from swimming in the river 😨

    Hurt like a son of a bitch, those things are no joke.

    • Hadleyb says:

      Is that why she needs pain killers? Its very painful?

      I heard it was easy to contract even at school and gyms etc. Is that true? I should be more careful at the gym!

      Honestly though, I doubt her. Its just they lie about everything so even if this is true, I find it hard to believe from all their past lying.

      • lem says:

        once i went running on the treadmill in my sneakers without socks (i forgot to pack them). i rubbed a tiny area raw on the top of my foot. 36 hours later, full blown staph infection in my lower leg. i didn’t even remove my shoe at the gym. yes, they hurt like a BITCH and it truly does not take much to catch one.

      • paolanqar says:

        Ok I just googled ‘staph infections’ images and GOOD GOD.

      • Charlotte15 says:

        HadleyB I wondered that as well; I didn’t think one would need painkillers for a staph infection (if in fact that is the only thing wrong with Khloe right now).

      • Charlotte15 says:

        Just read the rest of the comments and I stand corrected!! Clearly I had no idea what a staph infection entailed.

        But yeah, she’s right for once, it’s probably not the best idea for *anyone* to respond to inflammatory tweets while on painkillers!

      • Jwoolman says:

        Some people do need painkillers for a staph infection. Gyms/locker rooms are common sources of infection, so good practice is no bare feet, shower before you leave, don’t share towels, etc. Watch out for any breaks in the skin or boils, since a skin infection can go systemic. You can google staph infection prevention to give you more information.

      • WinnieCoopersMom says:

        Yes they are easy to contract. Basically all one needs to do is have an open wound and get bacteria in it. My sister got it in HS from her dance team routine that had them drop to their kept this one small spot on her leg open and she caught it from the fake turf on the field. Had to have surgery and be put under in order to have it removed. It’s very serious if it gets in your blood system.

      • Sass says:

        Pedicure or manicure,anyone? If your cuticles are nipped, any germs around can go directly to your blood stream.

  3. Kitten says:

    These people are the stuff of nightmares. I mean, truly scary-looking…

    • Cindy says:

      I was thinking the same thing. The lips, the black claw nails, the lighting, it’s like a dystopian nightmare.

      Staph infections are no joke. *shudders*

    • Sea Dragon says:

      No kidding. Those lips, those talons, the hair, makeup, breasts, butt…is anything original left?

    • paolanqar says:

      The cynical side of me doesn’t believe for a second that she is sick.
      She’s either recovering from a nose job or she is hiding and creating drama to cover low ratings of her book. Who’s going to buy it? I mean… who picked the title??
      Strong looks better naked????
      I’d agree 100% with her if ‘Strong’ was a rugby player.
      Otherwise no. Khloè you look your best covered up and indoors with no internet connection so you can’t share pics of your ridicolous lips.

      Also no one with those nails bakes anything. Those claws make bodily functions hard let alone making a nice handmade pie.

    • Charlotte15 says:

      Kitten I agree. Somehow I manage to stay away from close-ups of most of them but I clicked on this post and…my god. She’s beyond scary looking and I find it terrifying that there are girls worldwide who look up to her and her sisters as role models (at least physically). 😫

    • MMRB says:

      she looks so … kreeepy….

  4. Loopy says:

    Her and her family bulldozed into that hospital after not talking to Lamar for years for attention.Period!

    • ekaterina says:

      Loopy got it right. Why stop divorce proceedings? Cause she wants to b in charge? Why not help him m b4, why get bodyguards n freak out if he was around. Khloe looks out 4#1. Does she care for him,sure but to what point? Enough that they lied about all his words when he woke, how is that possible when they say he can’t do it. They sell n promote anything n everything, whitening teeth to tampons

      • JudyK says:

        Ditto to both above remarks.

      • Cirque28 says:

        I think they also bulldozed into the hospital to stop the divorce and make sure Khloe inherited Lamar’s entire estate in case he died. Apparently he’s worth quite a lot of money and although Khloe has plenty, this IS the Kardashians we’re talking about. Their greed knows no limit.

      • Christin says:

        I agree with the thought that she was involved for possible inheritance. While he was in intensive care, there was also little ‘hands on’ to do. Once he was going to survive and needed longer term care, they backed away.

      • Dani says:

        TMZ said they stopped the divorce because he’s on her insurance. And because she’s a better person to make choices for him than his dead beat drug addicted mooching father.

  5. lkaye says:

    You cannot prove Cedars Sinai gave you this infection, staph is all over the place. She is beginning to look a little alien.

    • swack says:

      If I were the hospital I would stop her from putting that out there.

      • Charlotte15 says:

        Swack: agreed, and didn’t Kim bring North there too? I call BS on this entire story. We already know that this family lies constantly.

    • Josephine says:

      Hard to believe that Kim would drag her kid there if they believed that the hospital was responsible. On the other hand, it was a PR opportunity, so ….

      • Alana says:

        Conspiracy theory: she is just getting another plastic surgery and this is perfect excuse to be out of public for a while ha ha ha
        Also to my knowledge staph infections appear within few days so the Lamar hospital visit was how long ago?

    • Lynne says:

      Yes, She could have easily picked up the staph infection from the gym, or from a recent procedure (and it looks like she had a lot of work done recently), and not from being around Lamar.

    • Katie says:

      I personally don’t believe she is actually sick. I think she’s milking the drama and now that Lamar is starting to recover, the media isn’t interested any longer. She’s got to do soemthing to keep herself in the public eye and this is all they know.

  6. Chrissy says:

    Is that teeth whitening product picture taken in a car?? What is the deal with pictures taken in a car? I figured it must be good lighting during the day but at night? Weird. No comments on the actual story though. 😜

    • Charlotte15 says:

      I thought it looked like the photo was taken in an airplane! Which would be even more bizarre. But with this family, who knows.

  7. Christo says:

    I hate how people use their instagram accounts to wh*re out product that they likely never use. Khloe, you can’t bleach veneers; who are you fooling???

  8. Patricia says:

    It sucks that people are coming at her about her wedding vows when Lamar cheated and lied and cheated and went on binges and cheated some more. Disappeared for days at a time. The whole nine yards.

    I think she’s pretty great for still being there for him.

    • cakecakecake says:

      she did her own dirt, JUST sneakily…trust me.
      not to mention him being used for publicity even in this state of health. One of his coaches admitted he begged her to stop filming that lil show they had and SHE claimed it was good for him and helping him. He said she could not even look him in the eye as he told her to not film Lamar.

      don’t forget the cameras that followed her into his room last week??

      Po Khloe

    • Josephine says:

      Yeah, I think the “pretty great” ended when she started giving endless interviews detailing his personal medical information and how great she is. Really, she just comes off as a vile human being. That anyone finds her behavior anything other than deplorable is mind-boggling to me. She’s using his situation to hit the talk circuit. What’s happened to this world that people find that so acceptable and even laudable now?

      • Sass says:

        It is against HIPPA laws for a hospital ,medical facility or its employees to reveal the info she has blithely shared with the media.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        I agree. And I was just going to ask how they were able to get cameras and a film crew into that hospital room—that’s a personal invasion of Lamar. Why did the hospital allow it? Shouldn’t they have stopped that? It’s beneath loathsome to go into a sick person’s hospital room and film them! It’s too bad KK is still technically married to him and can get away with that.

        If I were Lamar and someone filmed me in my hospital bed, I would sue them—married, divorced, or none of the above. This family continues to steamroll over anyone in their path, with their insatiable desire for money and attention. When is someone going to say NO to them?

  9. cakecakecake says:

    I was thinking it came from her butt augumentation or butt shots. I have heard about migration of crap to the legs…BUT that’s right, its supposedly real tho.

    poor Lamar gets blamed for everything, will this be an excuse to visit bi monthly now?

    • Sorbonne says:

      This. You dont get a Staph infection from walking through a hospital.

    • This ^^ Lamar gets blamed for everything, and the guy can’t defend himself. smh.

      I thought I had read somewhere, that Khole was camped out on the FLOOR of Lamar’s hospital room when he was critical. I don’t know.. Blows my mind with these people.

      I think people are losing their respect for her as to how she is handling the Lamar situation. Khole gave the impression that she would never leave his side, and be there for his recovery. And now, with her remarks about her boyfriend and husband on Ellen, that was a low blow…Maybe people are realizing that Khole is just as evil as the rest of’s all about money, and material possessions for these heifers.

      • swack says:

        Most hospitals have pull out beds or recliner type chairs to use. I doubt they let her camp out on the floor in the ICU because if something happened she would be in the way. Just saying.

      • swack says:

        Most hospitals have pull out beds or recliner type chairs to use. I doubt they let her camp out on the floor in the ICU because if something happened she would be in the way. Just saying.

      • I know, I work in a hospital.
        Just making a comment about something I read.
        Just saying…..

      • swack says:

        deleted as my comment double posted again!

      • yep says:

        She did not camp out on the floor. They have lovely cots for loved ones, and also private areas to rest for the relatives of long term patients.
        I do like how she stopped the divorce proceedings ” just in case” he passed away. Thats gold digger 101 there!

  10. Size Does Matter says:

    She must have accidentally gotten that tooth whitening device suctioned over her lips and yanked it off.

  11. Defaultgirl says:

    Scam, the family needs a sympathetic family member. That’s why Khloe suddenly has staph. Kris Jenner sees how much press Yolanda Foster gets for Lyme disease. Don’t believe this bogus storyline about staph. Smh

  12. Pandy says:

    Of all the issues Lamar is dealing with – I hadn’t heard anything about a staph infection?? And my god – that is one terrifying picture!!!

  13. Bobafelty says:

    Are Pinocchio butts more susceptible to staph infections?

  14. Mle428 says:

    I am a nurse, and have never contracted an infection from my time spent in the hospital. Now I work in wound care, and staph infections make up easily 50% of my day. One of the more typical places to contract staph is the gym, although many of these cases are idiopathic.

    People are often colonized with staph, and there’s really no rhyme or reason as to who gets colonized and why. I sincerely doubt that her infection came from the hospital.

    • JudyK says:

      Khloe did NOT get her staph infection from a hospital, but she’s saying she did to appear to be a Martyr for supposedly “sticking by Lamar’s side,” which is hogwash, and we all know it.

      It’s quite likely the infection came from the claws at the ends of her fingers, which, by the way, look absurd.

    • JudyK says:

      Deleted my remark.

    • Miss M says:

      If i recall correctly, we naturally have Staph in our skin (i.e Staphylococcus epidermidis) and in the respiratory tract (i.e Staphylococcus aereus). Some people can have an imbalance of them due to a cut or scratching your skin, I believe.

  15. NoWayJose says:

    Get off my d*ck? Did she really just say that? And what’s with the dagger finger nails? Yikes

  16. Andrea says:

    My great aunt died from a staph infection she got in the hospital while she was battling leukemia. That’s right, the leukemia didn’t kill her but a tiny cut in her finger went up her arm and she was found dead in her kitchen. 🙁

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      So sorry to hear that, it’s horrible how sickness can be so unexpected and claim lives, especially when it’s something seemingly small.

    • tealily says:

      Yes, that happened to a relative of mine, as well. He was much younger, too. Went into the hospital for an unrelated illness and then died of a staff infection.

    • Charlotte15 says:

      Andrea, that’s terrible and I’m so sorry. Tealily the same to you. IF Khloe is lying and doesn’t actually have staph but is either trying to “hide” after a cosmetic procedure or use it as an excuse to cancel appearances for her idiotic book, I would be so angry if I was one of you who had *actually* lost a loved one to staph while she just uses it as a convenient excuse because it “sounds better.”

      Didn’t a celebrity try to sue a nail salon in Beverly Hills a few years ago, claiming she had contracted staph there? (I’m thinking Mariah Carey for some reason, but I could be wrong.) If I remember correctly, the case had no merit because it couldn’t be proven that that is where the infection was contracted, but my memory is very fuzzy on the details, I just remembered the story right now.

  17. Sharon says:

    Sorry from the photo I thought it was that Brandi whatchamacallit – What has she done to her face????

  18. Pinky says:

    She’s a nitTwitterer.

  19. Jayna says:

    Staph infections in hospitals are frightening, but she still manages to tweet and carry on. I admire her so much. LOL

  20. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    *Side-eye Power Activated!*

    Reps tooth whitening product. Doesn’t show her teeth.

    Ahuh, yeah…you got that staph from helping Lamar, Khloe. More likely you hit one injection too many and you finally gave yourself something.

  21. Lbliss says:

    There is a difference in community staph and health care associated staph infections. Sounds like she got a community staph infection which is also painful. Boils are no joke people! And they can have localized pain for a few weeks. Ouch!

  22. Kymdragon says:

    I was under the impression you couldn’t pinpoint where a staph injection comes from?
    I had a blister on my foot which turned into a major staph infection and my whole leg swelled up. I know the shoes that gave me the blister, but it’s not like a specific place “gave me” the infection, its just a result of an open wound getting infected due to among many things, my own treatment of myself, exhaustion and a low immune system. No place has more “infectious air” than another place, and actually hospitals are quite sanitized compared to say.. a store on Rodeo drive.

    Weird that she’s trying to spin that she knows she got it from the Hospital.. Unless she was accidentally stuck with a surgical implement, I guess she’s trying to push the sympathy angle really hard.

    Poor suffering Khloe can’t even properly pimp out her book about her incredible weight loss from hiring a private expensive trainer for 2 plus years, having endless time to devote to her appearance, and surgically adding a huge butt and lips to the mix. How does she do it? I must buy the book and find out!

    I really really REALLY hope this book is a bomb. Even more than Kim’s selfie book.
    please please please…

    • Word says:

      The staph excuse seems a little too convenient. I’m sure it’s an excuse to get out of book touring. Too much like work.

  23. JudyK says:

    Did ya get some bad botox, hon? Some bad fillers somewhere?

    Bitchy, but I have NO RESPECT for this attention-getting you-know-what.

  24. AmyB says:

    Question: who the HELL needs painkillers for a staph infection???? And if it is really that BAD, why are you on Twitter?? Ugh! I just can’t with this family. Yes, Khloe take your own advice and get off Twitter. Better for all of us this way 😉

  25. Elle says:

    It also looks like she had her nose done in the book signing pics opposed to just contouring. It has that super ‘pinched’ look kris and Kim have. She is morphing into a Kimesque Barbie doll. All these women looked beautiful and unique before and now they look like plastic clones of one another.

  26. Charlotte15 says:

    I find it far easier to believe she contracted it doing something to those insane fingernails of hers, but the “getting staph from staying by Lamar’s bedside” will garner more sympathy, so.

  27. Dawn says:

    I don’t know if I believe her because this family tell so many lies but yes staph can be caught anywhere at anytime. My nephew got a scrap on his knee from a nail that was sticking out of a door jam. Two days later he was in the hospital and in surgery. He had to stay for three weeks and the first week no one could enter his room.

  28. Cirque28 says:

    This week in As The Kardashian Turns, the Saint Khloe character battles the most severe infection in the history of infections which could *only* have been contracted during her brave, lonely, martyred (and obviously nonstop) vigil at her almost-ex, almost-late husband’s hospital bed.

    (Will he survive? Will SHE?)

    Across town, Kim lights a candle and prays for her pre-pregnant body to return.

  29. Kelly says:

    “she’s a married woman with a boyfriend. ” Yeah, to me it is a big deal. She wants to play both sides of the fence in public to the nth degree then doesn’t like it when people call her out. Hypocrite.

    • word says:

      It runs in their family. Kim was with Ray-J before her divorce was even finalized from her first husband. Kim was knocked up and dating Kanye before her divorce from Humphries was finalised. Their mom cheated on her first husband as well. They don’t see marriage as a reason not to be with another man I guess.

    • swack says:

      I don’t get it either. When I divorced my ex was seeing some one before the divorce went through. I did not feel that is what should be happening. But I believe marriage until death or until the divorce is final and filed in the courts.

    • Kymdragon says:

      this!! They all try to play both sides and have it both ways until they get called out on their hypocrisy, then they cry “haters” and “jealous!”

      Khloe wants to be seen as the saint in her marriage while she also wants James Harden and his adidas money.
      She wants to be the “all real” one who outed Kylie’s fake lips but she bought herself a big ol’ fake butt that she refuses to acknowledge!

      Kylie wants to be given a break because she’s a kid, but she wants to be given the same freedoms as an adult. “I’m not just a normal 18year old im a SPECIAL 18 year old who can make my own decisions and own a house and deserves to be treated like an adult… but criticizing my choices and decisions? wahhhh i’m only 18 give me a break!”

      And Khloe saying the hospital gave her the infection, staph occurs when an open wound is infected. Much more likely she got the wound from a) finger claws b) injections galore c)being a self professed ‘gym rat’ when the gym is cited to be one of the most common places staph infections start.

  30. Jwoolman says:

    Hospitals are dangerous for patients (not really healthy visitors) because they are country clubs for microbeasties who can actually share circular bits of DNA (plasmids) across species – and those plasmids are typically the source of antibiotic resistance. For instance, if an antibiotic needs to penetrate the cell membrane but a specific protein manufactured via that plasmid interferes with such entry, the antibiotic can’t work. So any mutation in a plasmid in one species can transfer over to another species if a plasmid escaping from one (e.g. at cell death or any temporary breach in the membrane) enters another. They are all single-celled organisms with similar structure. Hospitals work really hard at keeping things clean, but with so many sick people and so many microbeasties — it’s impossible to completely prevent infection, especially since patients (besides having immune systems not up to par) are undergoing procedures (injections, blood draws) and may have lesions that can all provide entry. Outside the hospital, the different species of microbeasties would not be in such close proximity and so the risk of antibiotic resistance spreading between species is much less.

    Anyway- I think Khloe is really sick. If she were just recovering from one of her “procedures”, I doubt she would have scheduled that at the same time as a book signing tour unless she had an emergency connected with prior procedures. However, I would wonder about her claim that she has a staph infection acquired from the hospital. That’s extremely unlikely. She could acquire staph anywhere anytime and engages in many activities that make acquisition especially likely. It could have been in her system for years. Stress can contribute to outbreaks of viruses and bacteria that we routinely harbor, however, because it depresses the immune system that ordinarily keeps the microbeasties under control.

    Maybe Khloe is just looking for an excuse not to visit Lamar very often, and is spinning this for that purpose. There’s no guarantee that it’s really staph at all, of course. But she would choose to say staph if she wants us to believe she was infected at the hospital.

  31. Charlotte15 says:

    This is what I was trying to think of upthread; it was Paula Abdul and she ended up testifying in front of Senate:

    “In June, “American Idol” judge Paula Abdul testified before a state Senate committee, recounting her struggle with a staph infection under a thumbnail that she said was caused by a Studio City shop using unsanitary instruments.”

    I find it FAR easier to believe Khloe got it in a scenario like this, judging by her preposterous fingernails, but who knows.

    (Link to story just in case anyone cares:

  32. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Ok, she stole someone else’s face, right? Like, that doesn’t even bear a faint resemblance to what she used to look like. You can at least tell who Kim is without a cue card.

  33. iheartgossip says:

    First, having worked in health care; I believe ZERO that she contacted staph at the bedside of Lamar. Probably more from a ‘proceedure’ she had done on her face / body. And when you are part of the lying Kardassian’s (although Robert it not her dad, PMK’s personality is BIG with this one); nobody believes you. Get used to it. Guess she doesn’t like the push-back on her lies. Get over it.

  34. Ang says:

    I don’t believe her !!

  35. KH says:

    I don’t know if she is sick or not. What I DO know is that those lips are absolutely ridiculous.

  36. me says:

    She got MRSA from the place where she got her most recent plastic surgery.

  37. My Two Cents says:

    If she has staph, my guess is it came from the gymn, fake nails or needles from fillers.
    Why does James Harden attach himself to this woman? She is proceeding with divorce because she’s got her eye on a divorce settlement after a failed marriage to Harden. She would be richer than all of them then! Pimpmom will get her 10% cut for brokering the deal.

  38. Lucy says:

    Good to know that getting divorced/not getting divorced/bedside vigil for comatose husband/new relationship/twitter fights with randos/staph infection doesn’t get in the way of pimping some shitty beauty product.

  39. Learned One says:

    Clearly the side effects of her expressmile gadget include incredible fingernail growth and plumper lips.

  40. Veronica says:

    Staphylcoccus aureus is a normal resident of your skin, so it’s entirely possible she didn’t pick that up from a hospital visit but rather a typical cut or incision. Stress could have impacted her body’s immune system and allowed it to go rampant. If she picked up anything in the hospital, it might have been MRSA, which is a more aggressive form of staph and a common HIA.

  41. Lee says:

    Please people wake up hospitals are dirty places,next time your in one watch how the nurses don’t wash their hands. You well be surprise what you can became infected with. Because I know from personal experience will visiting my mom in one, I got a nasty infectious disease called CDiff , and I was then put in the hospital for 2 long weeks! So Khloe Kash my be many terrible things but NO ONE should have to experience a nasty infectious disease. One word of advice well in a hospital or visiting a love in a hospital, WASH YOUR HANDS with good old soap and water before leaving. Peace and love

  42. Terri says:

    Calm down people. MRSA is not the end of the world. It’s simply a strain of bacteria that doesn’t respond to antibiotics that respond to conventional treatment. If you treat it with Doxycycine or vancomyocin, you will be okay. Also put mupirocin in your nose and you will eradicate this bacteria. A lot of hospital staff carry this strain in their nose and on hands, but you can survive it. Just eat well and do the medically necessary tx you need and you will survive. Chill. It’s not the end of the world. It’s treatable!
