Hello, I am new to this post and am beyond concerned for my 6 year old son. He had bacterial meningitis when he was 3 months old. (Though they couldn't confirm a positive test result as they had already started the meds before they got the culture back, if that makes sense. ) Anyway, he showed all the symptoms of having bacterial meningitis.
Suprisingly, I wasn't informed on what to expect once he got older, as far as symptoms, life long struggle's either physically, emotionally or mentally. He is just so down and will say, "Mommy, I'm just so sad and I don't know why." It breaks my heart 😢 I'm not sure if this is relatedto him habing the meningitis or is something else going on? What are the symptoms/aftermath of having bacterial meningitis as an infant? How does it affect a child as they grow? Thank you so much.
