In april 2015 i was diagnosed with viral meningitis! I was in hospital for while then sent home to rest up. I was off work for a month and slowly went back to full time work. I was then told i had chronic fatigue syndrome which really knocked me back. I struggled like hell to get where i am today waking up with pain in the back of my head every morning. Im under a consultant still and have had 2 lumba punctures since the VM to reduce the pressure/fluid on my brain. I am still finding everyday life a struggle. The biggest struggle is the pain in the back of my head almost every morning and my memory is shot to pieces. My family now call me Dory from finding Nemo this does help keep a smile on my face.
I find it hard talking to people as a few have said "ooh its only viral meningitis, its not that bad" but any type of meningitis is bad in my opinion.
