There were many challenges as the medical team struggled to care for me. I was not expected to survive, especially at SIX weeks old, yet here I am 47 years later!
Miraculously, overall motor skills and childhood development was normal, except for a few things such as - I stuttered REALLY badly and I always had a hard time doing homework as a young boy. But I could sing fine, and most boys also struggle with wanting to do homework. Taking tests has always been a challenge for me.
Although my memory is pretty good (somehow), I have always struggled with tests. I failed the test to become a programmer four times and had to pass it twice! But I never gave up! I started wearing glasses in the fifth grade but I always thought that was genetic. And now that I'm getting older I am beginning to feel more joint pain than before, but I don't know if that is due to Meningitis or just getting older.
