Meningitis Now

I am the parent of a 16 yr old boy who had meningitis as a 3month old. He made a full recovery but has an acquired brain injury. He lies & steals without any thought of the consequences and speak exactly what comes into his head without thought as to whether it is hurtful to others. He is also being excluded from school for disruptive behaviour. Anyone else in the same situation?

Hello, i am'a mother of a girl who had bacteria meningitis at 50days old. she is now 9months old. i am sorry that your son faces these challenges.

How was he when he was growing up from a little boy to a teenager? was he always like this or perhaps it is something of his age and puberty? what is his neurology saying about this?
