4 January 2013, I went to an emergency room and got a saline for dehydration but I still didn't get better. The flu I thought I had was not only feeling like it was killing me but also hurting my family, my mom could not stand the fact that I could not move at all. I had lost 45% of my body muscle before I could get treated.
12 January, 2013 , I went up to my dads in Stoughton Wisconsin and he got mad by the second day and got me into the hospital and they said I had flu but my father took me back and they did a spinal tap and found I had upper spinal meningitis.
The 10 days I spent in hospital were the worst. I was sedated with the drug diluted for the pain I had in my body. They were in my room everyday to help feed me and help me bath so I didn't wither away. My weight loss was very bad , I was not able to stop vomiting until the sixth day in the hospital. The weight loss ended up bringing me from 234lbs to 177lbs at the end of this. Before I went home I had to get a blood patch and the recovery from that was awful.
