i guess i'm one of 14 confirmed cases-in august 2007 i was confirmed west nile meningitis/encephalitis it's been 7 months and i'm sitting here with a portable eeg on my head. trying to find out why i have a balance problems memory issues and to figure out why my head shakes inside. i can't even begin to tell you what one mosquito did. the doctors don't even know when and if these problems will go away.the world needs to start talking about this and everyone should read information about west nile.before this happened i was one who never worried about it,now i'm worried that it won't go away.

It appears there are hundreds of cases that give people flu-like symptoms for a few days then it goes away by it self. The only ones reported are if someone is hospitalized and they find it in a blood test. It is drastically under reported because public officials do not care. They don't want to spend money to get rid of mosquitoes, this would use up money they spend on themselves. They don't care if you or your family get sick, disabled, or even die. You might be in Kane county. They are just as bad.
