|Reviews for Meningitis|
| SephrinaRose chapter 1 . 2/24
I would like you to know that this story means a lot to me. When I was 15 months I was suspected to be critically ill with meningitis. They put me in a room to avoid contamination to others. One day I suddenly got better and the assumption was wrong. It started its spots like a rash on my body. 2 years ago, spots appeared on my body again and my Dad freaked. I was alight though. Thankyou!

I was just really quickly going through the FMA stories (since I started being into it, like, a week ago) and happened to see the words, "to raise awareness" in a summary, so I became intrigued and read the rest of the summary, not even noticing the title, and was like, "a story about meningitis?" I also really like the idea that you wrote a story to raise awareness. Giving a purpose to a fanfiction... Yeah, that appeals to me.
I had a cousin very nearly die of bacterial meningitis when she was 2. I was 13 at the time, so my entire time as a teenager was spent with this thought in the back of my mind. It's good to spread the word. It's been 7 years since then, and she's doing well (she's a bit like I was as a child, actually, I see a lot of myself in her) but it was a similar situation, where any longer without bringing her in and she wouldn't have made it.
This was a really good story, realistically portraying scary, serious things, and it's really awesome that you did that.

You did really well with the meningitis symptoms. I actually had meningitis b 2 years ago and it was quite a similar experience to the one you described. The only thing I think you might have been able to expand on was the pain a spinal tap causes, I was fully conscious for mine though I am missing a whole days memory.

Good story. I had Spinal Meningitis twice. Once when I was 8, and then again when I was 14. If it wasn't for my mom's quick thinking both times I wouldn't have made it. I was like Ed, only believing I had a really bad cold. Your story really captured what it was like, and how fast it hits. Great job raising awareness! :)

I had two close friends diagnosed by this disease, both of them died in this year..Everything is so sudden, and because they live in dormitory and won't tell anyone about it, they can't be treated quickly..
If only I read this fic sooner...

This was a great way to raise awarness. I had thought about giving Ed Meningitis one time but like you said their medical technology probably wasnt that great and I didnt want him to die or use his life force to have to save himself or something like that so I never wrote it. You did a great job with this fanfiction version of a PSA.

Awesome story! Very informative!
| Xtraitor chapter 1 . 11/1/2012
Very informative. Anything I learned about Menigitis (before I read this) came from an app called Symptom Scenes. Before I got that app I had never even heard of Septicaemia. But now I do.
Poor Ed. So glad he survived though. I think I read this before, can't remember if I read the whole thing the first time or not, but one night when I was playing symptom scenes I got this idea that made me think of this fic. Spread the word!

Harrumph for creative license, for without it we wouldn't have good stories!
