By Thursday night I was still vomiting and getting weaker all the time. As Friday morning approached I had become very ill with severe headaches and vomiting to the point I could no longer take the severity of the pains in my head. I asked my daughter to get an ambulance. I thought that I would never get to the hospital but just wanted someone to take away the pain I had in my head. I remember arriving with relief; at least, I thought, I am at the hospital and I am in safe hands.
I don't remember much of Friday. I woke up in I.C.U. and I was being treated for bacterial meningitis. I was shocked when my consultant told me I had a serious case of bacterial meningitis and I was to be treated with antibiotics for the next fourteen days. In total I stayed sixteen days and thanks to the doctors and nurses I was treated and let home.
I am still in recovery; the time out to get well is very important. I am doing well and I thank God every day and the doctors for getting me through an illness that could have killed me.
I am Bridget Fox and that is my story.
