I was diagnosed with bacterial menangitis almost 4 wks ago. I finished my IV antibiotics a week ago. I still feel awful. Headaches, fatigue, neck stiffness, body aches, extreme fatigue and confusion upon any physical activity such as household chores, shopping, etc. My husband and friends want me to return to my very physically demanding job next week, especially since I am the only source of income. He is in school and we have no health insurance, sick pay leave, etc. We are basically with abbsolutely no income now. But I see no way I can go to work at this point. Should I attempt it anyway? Will pushing myself help me get better? I don't know what to do.
