I'm 15 months into recevory. I was 48 when I contracted WNV. I battled it for 2 months, in and out of the hospital. My temp was as high as 108 for periods of time. I would go up in the evening and down in the morning. Fatigue was the first symptom, but rapidly advanced into unconsciousness in a few days. It gave me meningitis, encephalitis, dehydration, and anemia. It almost killed me. I lost 30 lbs of lean muscle and looked like a refuge. My memory is shot and my near vision. It's only this long that I look and feel normal again, although my brain does work differently now. This can be a very serious disease for some. I was lucky.
