Since I last wrote, the treatment that I’m taking has shown improvement. The drugs that I am taking are now giving me more energy. I’m very happy about this.
According to what mama said, I’m eating well. But we have little food here. That is why Mama requested money from MSF.
Before, when I was well, I could eat whatever I wanted. But now, there’s no any capacity to get that kind of food. So, I don’t have any option, I eat what I can… whatever they can give me. I still just hope to get cured, then I can do other things to get the good food that I want.
Most of the time when I wake up in the morning, I been experiencing joint pain and have not slept well. So, when I wake up, I don’t have much energy, I’m weak and cannot move around. The thing is, I feel like moving around and doing things. According to doctor, this is a side effect of the drugs I am taking and will go. That is why most of the time, if I take my drugs, I just lie on my bed. I’m tired all the time. I wish I could get up and sweep and clean my compound, but when I try, I find I just don’t have.
That kind of thing really tortures me – I keep on thinking about it. It makes me think that it will always be like this, even if I get cured. So what is the point in getting cured.
