I was collected from work last May by my husband feeling very unwell, I was being treated for an ear infection and thought I needed 24 hours under my duvet..... I woke up 5 days later after being in an induced coma! I couldn't work out why my visitors were tearful! The team in the ICU were amazing! I had bacterial meningitis, 8 blood clots on my brain and later developed discitis!! However I made a fantastic recovery and was home in just over 3 weeks,I hada few hiccups but was back at work full time within 4 months and with no side effects whatsoever! I feel very blessed and a year to the day my diagnosis was made I was walking the moonwalk (15.5 m) through London at night, raising over £1000 for breast cancer! I aim to raise funds for meningitis now next!
