Now about 6 months later my doctor believes I had Meningitis B
which I did not have the vaccine for because it has been more recently developed. I spent most of my time asleep when in the hospital and didn't eat much because of all the drugs leaving my system made me feel gross. I always had company whether it was my friends, family or even the nurses taking 5 extra minutes out of their day to talk to me which I truly appreciate. I left the hospital on March 11 and went home with my family to further my recovery.
The COVID-19 lockdown
started about a week later and then I started virtual classes the next week. The after effects of having meningitis
for me have been short term memory loss and fatigue. I am very lucky that Lauren was there that day.
