Hi everyone. i am just wondering what anyone can tell me about changes they have encountered after viral meningitis. It has been 8 1/2 months since I had VM. 9 days in hospital and then 4 1/2 months before returning to work gradually. At 6 months I was back to work full time. I suffered from depression til about a month ago. Still suffering from some short term memory issues. What i am noticing is my change in personality. Like i am a different person than i was. Not a people person like i was. Not a happy person like i was. not a patient and tolerant person like i was. Is anyone else going thru this??
