My wife has left me since I got this sickness. I have two daughters who live in Nagaland and one son who lives in Manipur with my elder brother.
Last year, I met my daughters only once. Since then I have not seen them. They live far away so they couldn’t come to see me. My son comes once every three or four months. He is 11 years old.
My elder brother takes care of my children.
I would like to say one thing. When I had MDR – TB, the doctor asked me to come to Churchandpur and to have somebody who could take care of me. I have many relatives in Churchandpur but nobody was willing to take care of me. Nobody wanted to keep me in their home. I came to this aunty and told her that I am about to die, nobody is willing to keep me. Take pity on me and let me live in your house.
My aunty cannot give me good food here but still they give me something. And they gave me this little space to live in. And MSF has repaired the room where I live. Doctors and nurses come here and see me. Nurses come here morning and evening to give me medicines. They bring some food for me sometimes, like biscuits, horlicks.
I told the doctors that if you treat me then I will do anything for you. If not, then just give one poisonous injection and kill me once and for all.
