TikToker reveals how she got sepsis from wearing tight shorts

A woman has revealed that she almost died after wearing high-waisted shorts for eight hours.

Sam, from North Carolina, ended up in a life-threatening situation after wearing tight denim shorts on a date with her boyfriend.

The date, which was three years ago, lasted eight hours, and while the shorts were “uncomfortable”, she told Buzzfeed, she “chose to ignore it and just enjoy my time.”

The following day, the 25-year-old recalled feeling very ill and sore when she noticed a lump where the chafing had been, which, as time went on became incredibly sore.

So, she went to the doctor who prescribed her antibiotics for a skin infection.

But the morning after receiving the medication, Sam went into what she later learned was a septic shock after getting cellulitis – a deep infection of the skin – and was rushed to hospital where she was told she might have to undergo an operation to remove the infection.

Sam told her story on her TikTok account ( @imtoooldtobeonthisdown ) when she recovered from the infection, which has now been viewed more than eight million times.

She said: “Wearing shorts on one of my first dates with my bf and having a wedgie for 8 hours. Then having a sore a** for a few days.








She made a full recovery

“After a few days, started to feel sick and went to the doctor. They give me antibiotics for a possible ‘skin infection’ in my a** crack.

“Next day, feeling awful. I can’t walk so I go to the ER and insist I’m in the worst stabbing pain.

“Gets admitted to the ICU and doc says I have sepsis and cellulitis.

“Spends a week in ICU. Doctors tell me they may need to cut off (idk medical terms) the part of my a** that is infected. Constantly having to show my a** to doctors every day.

“They did not have to do the surgery (thank the good a** lords) but I did endure the trauma of my mother taking selfie’s of me while I’m asleep in the hospital bed.”

In the comments, she clarified that she “did pick my wedgie a lot throughout the 8 hours ok!!!”.

Luckily, she has now made a full recovery, with only her pride being bruised by “constantly having to show my a** to doctors every day.”
