Hello, I had viral meningitis at the end of July & spent three nights in hospital.
I had dizziness & balance problems for several weeks after but thankfully they are becoming less often. I'm back at work which unfortunately for me was a new job so I'd had two weeks in the new position when I went off for three weeks with VM.
When I returned to work I suddenly felt incapable of doing my job & ended up in tears. My manager is very understanding but I don't see her patience lasting a long time as the role requires me to be on top form.
I've just returned from a weeks holiday & whilst away I just wanted to come home & didn't enjoy it at all. I suffered with anxiety/depression before the meningitis & whereas before I was coping now I'm not, I'm very low, tearful & dreading going back to work or taking on any other task where I have to concentrate or think. Is this part of the after effects of VM? I'm going back to see my GP this week.
