So last Monday (Labor Day) I found myself quite unexpectedly in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with a confirmed case of viral meningitis. I was finally released (after endless tests) Thursday evening. Big deal, right? Not really. Its more like old news, because this was the third time I've contracted meningitis. The last time I had meningitis was May 2009. (I wrote about it in my entry Thank goodness for percoset.)
I swear I must be the only person who can self-diagnose meningitis and rate Boston area hospitals on their proficiency with spinal taps. Perhaps I should contact Consumer Reports to see if they need someone to provide quality ratings on spinal taps.
Fortunately, I am on the mend and glad to write I finally feel myself again.
