BLLAAAHHHH!!!!! I think that I am going to hurl. Why does my neck feel so stiff. AHH!!!
If I have forgotten one or two times, could I have given myself Meningitis?
I always wash my hands after using the bathroom. Well, I think at least.
I should have gotten vaccinated but I sure am scared of those big needles.
I think that I just need to sleep for a 100 years.
Do you have Meningitis? Some early symptoms are: Nausea, Vomiting, Fever, Headache, and Stiff Neck. Some later symptoms are: Sensitivity to light and Confusion. Some late symptoms are: Seizures, Coma, and Death.
MOMMY!!! CAN YOU PLEASE BRING MY ANTIBIOTICS!!!
Meningitis is spread by coughing, sneezing, a mother giving birth, living in the same household as someone who has it, and by using the bathroom without washing your hands. The bacteria can be found in foods but is mostly spread from person to person.
Wha'd ya say Ma?
The best way to prevent getting Meningitis is to get vaccinated. You should also avoid smoking, being around people who are sick, and you should get plenty of rest.
According to the CDC, it states, "Doctors treat bacterial Meningitis with a number of antibiotics. It is important to start treatment as soon as possible."
Fun Fact: If Meningitis is not treated, it can have permanent effects including brain damage, learning disabilities, and hearing loss.
