Cryptococcal meningitis caused me to have 2 small strokes. Thankfully no serious permanent damage was caused by either stroke, but the meningitis/fungus damn sure left some damage along the way. Stay optimistic, do what you can each/every day, listen to your body when it needs rest, eat balanced meals and drink lots of water. I know some people don't care for/believe in prescription meds, but I can honestly say without all the antifungal meds I was given I surely would've passed on by now as modern medicine surely has a rightful place. I mention this to let people know it's OK to take prescribed meds if it helps recovery as natural remedies sometimes do little to nothing for something on this level.
