I almost DIED

Yep it's true! I contracted bacterial meningitis this past February. If it hadn't been for my wonderful and worried and very sick husband, I would not be here. He literally saved my life by calling the ambulance (oh, that's another story, my insurance won't pay for most of that trip to the hospital) but anyway, I digress....

Thankfully the ER docs had a clue and figured it out. Apparently only about 3,000 adults get this per year in the U.S. That's not a lot. It's much more common in children. And I'm a nurse, I knew the symptoms, but was too "out of it" to know what was going on to help myself. I have no recollection from about 8:30 p.m. Monday till midday the following Sunday....

to be continued....
