My daughter Lucy was diagnosed with bacterial meningitis at 10 days old, thankfully she recovered seemingly undamaged, she is now nearly 2 1/2 and I cant help thinking there is something not quite right with her, I try and explain it to people and they always say "its just normal 2 year old behaviour!" maybe it is maybe it isn't but something keeps niggling in the back of my mind. The one thing I find difficult to get my head around is the fact that she never had a brain scan, it pretty much felt like once the infection had gone we were sent on our way, no talk of possible after effects or anything. Lucy gets extremely angry at silly little things, to the point where she will bight herself. She gets easily frustrated at the silliest of things, I know all these things are normal in toddlers but they just seem very extreme, my other daughter was nothing like this!!!! anyone have any experience/knowledge of this?
