Hey my name is India.

I am currently twenty three years old. I gotten sick with meningitis at the age of fourteen while attending an amusement park with a friend and classmates. I have attended this park with my family since I was 8 years of age. It shocked me, with this illness that you may experience so much that it becomes so much to talk about.

I still have after effects from this illness physically and mentally. May we all stay clean and start doing healthy things to avoid viruses like this. I've experienced it all but thank you to God, my family, and all of the doctors that have helped me heal. I still am remaining strong 💪❤️😊🌹🙏 💯 !
