Anyone here an MRSA survivor?

About 2 years ago, I had a huge nasty infection in my leg. It was seen twice by doctors and misdiagnosed before i went to the emergency room and learned of the true nature of my very painful, festering boil. I spent about a week in the hospital getting a steady diet of intravenous antibiotics and bad food before it started to recede. I was told that if I waited another 24 hours, the infection would have infiltrated my femur and jeopardized my leg. I was fevered and sick when I went in the ER. This was a very scary experience, compounded by the stories of several deaths spouting from the "super bug" in the news. Anyone else have something like this? Ive included a picture of the mass before I went into the hospital. Enjoy!
