I am 6 days post hospital trip where I was diagnosed with viral meningitis. I have been on bed rest & attempted to go back to work yesterday. Bad idea, I almost passed out. I am now finding that I get lightheaded even talking to people. If I don’t stop then I feel that I will faint. I also have difficulty processing things. I usually love to read but it’s almost like my brain can’t keep up. I get somewhat confused or overwhelmed when reading. Even writing this post is difficult. Did anyone else have these problems? How do I get myself back on track? I really need to go back to work but I’m exhausted.
