So i’ve got an immune deficiency which means It’s harder for me to fight off the bacterial meningitis bug and am now on life long antibiotics.
I have had 4 episodes of meningococcal meningitis at the ages of 10,16,16 and 17 and luckily enough from that I’ve only gotten bad eye sight which a pair of glasses fix.
Every episode I’ve had all different symptoms from the head aches the rash. The sick was in one case which led to me not going into the hospital as soon as I should have because we thought it was food poisoning🤦♀️ So now every slight symptom I have I get checked just incase.
I like sharing my story because I feel like everyone hears of the bad things that happen but in my case I’m still healthy after having 4 times and not letting my deficiency hold me back. I currently can’t wait to go back to study science at college of the hope of being a pharmacist and enjoying life to the full.
