I was diagnosed with meningitis on 8th March, but i couldn't be told if it was viral, or bacterial and where it had come from. I have been out of hospital for 3 weeks now and it is still extremely hard for me to do anything for myself. I am 32 years old and usually very active. I have a daughter who is 4 and we do everything together, but not since i got ill. I have a partner, who is not the father of my child and the relationship is a year old. Cracks were starting to show, but suddenly today i was told that they no longer wish to be my carer...
