Hi, Ive been pos 17 years and diagnosed with aids in 2005 with a viral of 750,00 and a 102 cd4. I was misdiagnosed with pneumonia so I eventually collapsed die to the meningitis and spent 3 weeks in the hospital. My wife was told I would probly not make it more than a few days because I was so sick. Im still here by the grace of god but have major cognitive issues ie concentration..etc. I was wondering if others here havie had crytococcal meningitis and how have they coped? I met someone with encephalitis and out syptoms are the same, we work out together at a local gym. Other than that my doc says that writing helps so, lol I started writing and ended up with a book that I have on Amazon called "My life, a life story of a man infected" I figured why not at this point. It did help me to focus but not as well as I would like...maybe someone here has a similar story of situation?
