Although I want to say many things, one thing I always think about is that by all means I am going to finish my course. One thing I have to do is to help those who are going through the same thing. MSF is really helping me, and although the treatment is for two years and has been very difficult, the longer life ahead is what is more important to me.
I never met my father; he passed away when I was in my mother’s womb. There was no one to teach me a good moral life. When I became an adult, I started driving VIP vehicles and earning money. But I used it in the wrong way, buying and using pure opium and all kinds of drugs, alcohol, even heroin also. Then after that I was married, had three children, but I became divorced, and eventually suffered from TB. I took treatment five times outside of MSF. I visited an MSF clinic in Tuining, but I was very sick. I used to have to walk and even crawl there on the road. Sometimes I asked my mother for bus fare, but then she remarried and I was out of contact. MSF gave me a TB treatment there which failed, and at that time we found out it was MDR-TB. So this is my seventh course.
Now, compared to those days, even though I still have all of these pains, I feel like I am a “king”. And I know and I promise that I will never go back to the old life that I used to have. Although there are lots of things to be grateful for, MSF, although they have treated the physical, my spiritual life has also been healed. Now, even if I die, I have a piece of mind, and I know I am going to heaven. I have been healed physically, mentally, and spiritually. I have 45 days left in my course.
