My little boy was diagnosed 4 days before last christmas (his first christmas) with meningococcal meningitis. Our world was torn apart because we were told that his survival chances where not great but my little boy put up a big fight and came out of it. He was discharged late christmas day and then the community nurses took over his treatment. Since then his behaviour has escalated to the point that he will full on bang his head against concrete floors and brick walls so we are constantly trying to keep him safe. Our local hospital Alder Hey put it down to temper tantrums but as a parent i know my child and i know that since having meningitis my child has changed. His speech has not developed, his understanding is not great. Has any other parents experienced the same or similar?
