Any traumatic experience will impact on people. I don't know if that's always psychiatric. You could try a support group. Viral meningitis can have after effects that are neurological and affect people mentally so if you didn't you might want to post in the neurology forum to ask about that as well.
i posted it there too but no response yet
Strange !! I didn't know that meningitis and meningoencephalomayelitis exist in the USA. I tought diseases like these etc... rabis and poliomyelitis say, disappeared there.
anyway this forum is for Bipolar patients, you need forums of medicine or neurology. it's good that you passed through it safe because sometimes if unattended well it's deadly. I bet you have good doctors overthere because how come they diagnosed you so rapidly.
incidentally, since we are off-point here discussing other types of disease, what about swine flu, i heard that it's taken lightly in the USA, i.e. that classes continue in schools and the person who becomes ill just go home for rest. here in egypt complete panic and schools are shut 2 more weeks and we don't know if it will be shut for another few weeks. can anybody tell me the danger of swine flu because everybody is hysterically afraid from it especially we heard people died all over the world. now we are waiting for the pilgrimage period to bring further danger
well i posted it in nurology and i posted it here because i do suffer from bipolar disorder...im afaid that the depression is going to go way beyond healthy here and i just got back on track being stabilized. I have my wits about me right now but im afraid of what might happen if i get lost in the depression...im hoping its just due to inactivity but i have to be aware of the other possiblity
uhm the swine flu doesnt seem to be as bad as it was when we first heard about it...were getting our shipments in for the vaccine but research is still being done so a lot of people are reluctant to take it. Mostly small children and elderly people are hit the hardest but healthy adults seem to get better after its run its course...i was watching the news the other day and they said that anyone who has had the flu this year most likely has had some strain of the H1N1 virus
