Jacob thank you so much for sharing your journey! I had no idea you were going through this ordeal when we were classmates at LSU. I am glad that you are healing and I ended up working at that engineering firm because of you and because of our bond that we forged that year. You mean a lot to me man-- keep fighting and we thank God for you and your beautiful family!

I enjoyed reading your story. I had severe case of HSE at the age of 10 and an now 47 years old. You are so fortunate to have survived w/o major lifelong residuals. Thanks for spreading the word about E. Good luck to you!

Still dealing with the residuals from E 34 years later. I agree with the above post, support system is vital to augment recovery. Still fighting and believing! Waiting for the movie.

Just saw the trailer- excellent, wanted the movie to continue right then and there. My daughter has autoimmune E, came down with it a year after she transferred from one college to another (she was a film major in Boston, but switched to a more science-related major in VT). We miss her old mind, but the new mind is coming along okay - she can be quite witty now!

I am an AE survivor having been diagnosed with NMDA almost 3 years ago...usually reading stories about E aren't so inspirational because they usually don't have the happy ending you and I have been blessed with. Spreading the word is a great start to having more happy endings...god bless you!

I'm so happy you recovered!

I had no idea! I'm so glad you survived this terrible disease. You are such a wonderful person.

Jacob, what you are doing and what you have done is inspiring. I had never known that about you, but just makes you a stronger man. God definitely had a plan for you and your precious family.

Well, you learn something every day! I did not know about encephalitis really, or that you had it. Thank you for sharing this story! Love you guys and miss you! Glad you are doing well.

Jacob, thanks so much for sharing your story, Encephalitis Survivors deserve to be heard. My sister is a long time survivor with more residual than many, but meeting others who have survived E have helped her understand she is not alone with her daily struggles.

Great to read.. I was 23, it happened almost 23 yrs ago, and so many times when reading thought 'THAT WAS ME !' Many, when hearing my story, say 'You should write a book and show how God was obviously there for you through it all.' SO good to see these pictures. One adorable family :-)

Although I was much older than you when I was struck down with viral encephalitis, I was left with a number of residuals, which have affected my life right up until today. My mantra became: I'm awake. I'm alert, and thanks be to God ... I am alive!

Thank you for sharing your story, Jacob. It aligns very similarly to what happened to me when I was diagnosed with the HSE only five months ago. I feel so blessed to be alive and know that this new journey for me has just begun - it is a true miracle to be here. You have already inspired others by your words and actions, and may you, Sarah, and your little one be blessed with continued health, love, and joy.

Very well told story. So happy for you now. It's so surreal to think that three years ago I had never give e encephalitis any thought whatsoever and now it's such an intrical part of my daily life. Blessings to you and your family.

Sarah said:   July 17, 2013 6:59 pm PST
I thank God everyday that He healed you so you could be mine! I love you and I'm so proud of this project.
