Upon arrival I began to vomit uncontrollably. The doctors sedated me and placed me in quarantine.
I woke up three days later, with my family in my room. The doctors said that if I had waited another 30 minutes I wouldn't be here. I had bacterial meningitis.
I was told the numbness was due to the seizures. They said that I may never be ‘normal’ and couldn't tell if there was any permanent damage. I don't know how I got it, apparently there was an outbreak in my area.
I wanted to send in my story because I did not see any similar symptoms in the other stories. Mostly I feel like I have fully recovered. I don't think I have any after effects but I am still terrified every time I have a headache.
