Today marks the one year anniversary of me being discharged from hospital, after being in a coma with a rare strain of bacterial meningitis. It struck hours after I'd had my baby by caesarean section.
I was only in hospital for two weeks, and am extremely lucky not to have any obvious side-effects. The medical team were amazing, and acted very quickly when my symptoms started showing.
Don't know why I'm posting really, just wanted to spread the word that meningitis isn't always devastating and celebrate me beating it!
I have signposted my GP to this site, as he'd never heard of it, and he will now let patients know how they can get fantastic support too.
