I'm a woman in my early thirties, who works as a healthcare worker at a general hospital.
My experience with TB started seven years ago, when I studied at a medical faculty.
Two weeks after I finished my round at the pulmonary ward, I started coughing. I then had difficulty breathing: after getting an x-ray, it showed I had TB.
After taking a course of drugs I thought, I was cured - only to develop a strain of multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).
I am currently taking my treatment for MDR-TB, battling this ugly disease.
I will not go without a fight.
