Hi everyone. I'm new to this site. I contracted streptococcal meningitis in December 2013. I was in hospital for 17 days then went into rehab for 4 weeks. I am now waiting to go back into rehab. The meningitis resulted in me being deaf in my left ear. My balance is impaired hence I cannot walk unaided, I use crutches. I also have all the other after effects from contracting meningitis. Unfortunately the meningitis also caused me to have a stroke. I have still not returned to work and not sure when I will be returning. Since the illnes my life has completely changed. I used to be a fit sporty and active person. Now I'm unable to do any of the sports I loved doing; but I'm determined to get back to as near as possible like I was before the illness with the help of rehab, friends and family
