im glad you know where im coming from, some people may think im bragging about myself or i didn't have the meningitis as bad as some people. im just trying to say that any kind of exercise requires balance and might lead to a quicker recovery. u gotta remember that the brain is still swollen 6 to 8 months after you had the illness, so it will affect your hearing, sight everything, thats why it takes so long to get better. its been 5 years since i had it and i still got the side affects but their better, if you were ever to meet me you would never even know that i had got sick at one time. you said your hasband was kinda sick and lost some of his hearing, i know when i get a cold or something my ears ring louder and kinda plug up so hopfully thats all that is.
i also went though eye theropy but it really didn,t do a hole lot, i still had 20/20 vision, but my vision shakes when ever i move. so i went down to the ohio state university, thats where i was hospitalized when i was sick, anyways they did a test where you sit in this chair in a dark room and kinda move you around to see what your brain is doing, well they said the mechanical mecingnism in my brain was damaged which controls part of your vision and hearing and so on, thats when they told me i better look for a new career. i paint the lines on the road and thats all ive ever done, so its kinda hard to just try to find another good paying job. at the time my parents were paying all my bills and that was a year and a half so i had no choice, i had to go back to work. they through me right into the mix of everything like running hand grinders to climbing up on paint strippers, whick requirs alot of balance. i just thought to myself thank god that i worked out and exercised or else i wouldn,t of been able to do all those things, but going back to work was the majer rehab for myself thats what realy helped me, so ya please write back i would love to try to answer any qeustions
