I am in the states and it seems that UK has a better network for info. on meningitis and I feel lucky to have found HealthUnlocked. I had bacterial meningitis and lost my hearing in 2011. I am reading a book Amy Purdy has put out about her experience with bacterial meningitis. Its very good and brings out real life experiences and its helping me understand and somewhat relate the dealings and major life change you can have. She has dealt with it very good. She lost her legs and has went on to not only walk again but became a bronze medal winner in the 2014 Paralympic Games and has went on to the do a TV Show here called Dancing with the Stars. Recommend reading for meningitis surviors
