I have just recently got home from Thailand after booking a dream, once in a lifetime holiday with my fiancé - which turned out to be quite the opposite!
I became ill on the flight over to Bangkok and ended up in hospital for 6 weeks over there.
I was diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis pretty early on which I was treated for and recovered from.
The Meningitis part was all a bit of a blur - I can't remember anything from the flight and woke up from a coma 4 days later, utterly confused and bewildered.
Whilst still in hospital I suffered some major set backs which included Congestive Heart Failure, Liquid on the Lungs and Blood Clots on the Brain.
I was seen as fit to fly home after the clots were seen as stable and have been recovering at home since and am under the care of the NHS.
I just want to talk about my feelings really, as I feel I am about to burst! I have been putting on a brave face to family and friends but deep down I feel so upset and confused and angry. My memory has been effected and am very forgetful. I get mood swings and just don't feel myself. I want to cry and let it all out. I want to know if this is normal really, and if anyone has been through something similar?
Sorry for the ramble!
I hope to chat to someone soon!
