Hi! When I was just 5, my dad died o meningitis too. He was diagnosed on time but his brain cells were too damaged to be repaired. and Now when I read about the disease, my heart breaks when I think how its not that dangerous and people survive it too. I MISS MY DAD SO MUCH.
BE STRONG! I am 22 years old now. No one can take his place EVER but time do have healing powers. STAY BLESSED!!

Hi Supriya, we're very saddened to hear about the loss of your father. It's always terrible to hear about the illness not being spotted until it's too late. Unfortunately the early symptoms are often difficult to distinguish from other milder illnesses. We do try to raise awareness amongst the medical profession as well as the general public, and everyone can help with that so thanks for sharing your experience.
