Hi. My name's Suzie. I was diagnosed with viral meningitis after contracting influenza about 3 weeks ago. I don't really remember much of the first week when I was in and out of hospital - but since being home (and obviously off work) I am feeling a lot better however I am still experiencing headaches, nausea, vertigo and exhaustion - it makes me cry because I'm used to being really busy and now I have no energy. I just wanted to get some advice or to hear others experience from VM. When you google VM (ironically i am a healthcare professional, so I know google can be the worst), it says the average person recovers in 7-10 days. I therefore feel like a fraud for still feeling awful at times still.
I just wanted to hear from some other people about how they're coping with post VM symptoms; or if I need to just man up ?
I look forward to hearing from others soon,
