I am 38 yrs old n had menigitis when i was 5. My whole life has been a struggle since then. School was so hard. I never really learned anything even though i trie n no one ever caught my struggle n helped me r figured out it was menigitis. The only help i ever recieved was 2yrs of speech. I still cant divide r do simple math in my head. I tried 4 10yrs 2 learn 2 drive. Even went 2 drivere ED 3 diff times. I have memory loss, trouble retaining whwt i learn. Forget my phone number, social security nimber. I lov playing card games like rummy, but it took me a painfully long time 2 learn n if go more than a month r so without playing i have 2 learn all over again. As an adult been diagnosed with everything from ADHD 2 Biopolar but none of them ever covered all my symptoms n the meds would make me crazy. I never mentioned menagitis cause i didnt know it mattered r was important. Is is 2 late 4 me 2 seek help with my problems?
