I had viral meningitis in July of 2017. It was caused from my genital herpes which I never knew could happen so I was very upset. Now I am just living with still being tired and sometimes pain, light sensitivity and headaches. I have read a lot about it and it said to rest but I have been working since released from hospital bc I cant afford to be off. I do get unaware of when I am having a breakout to get meds. But my infectious doctor gave me refills for valtrex to take when I have symptoms. Right now I just feel lost and confused. People don't want to be around me my friend just had a baby and she said now is not a good time to meet her I am so hurt and just feel like I should never leave the house. I just need some feed back from other people who have been through this.
