Hi, I'm a lucky survivor of bacterial meningitis. My parents were given a 50/50 chancestry I'd survive at 17 and here I am nearly reaching 40! It seemed I'd gotten away with it unscathed. However, lately I'm recognising changes in my memory. My speech has detriorated and im even sometimes mixing words up. Does anyone know whether having suffered meningitis years ago can start to have an affect on you years later? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Cat
