I had viral meningitis over 7 months ago and in the past couple of weeks have had times of bursting into tears for no reason, feeling low etc. and going from this to being really irritable, short tempered. My head just feels so exhausted. I've gone from feeling highly anxious about everything and about getting sick again to teary and tired. I don't feel in control of it. It's very different to any time I've felt low in the past (i.e. before meningitis) where I could get myself out of a rut. I'm considering going on antidepressants (I need to talk to my GP about this) but I'm worried it's too soon after having meningitis. Has anybody else experienced something similar? Has anybody else gone on antidepressants following meningitis? And if so, how long after you had meningitis before you went on anti-dps? I'd really appreciate anybody's advice / experience.
