So, as you people out there know, I got this infection not knowing that it was TB. Because I had diarrhea, a pain in my neck and also stomach discomfort, I thought it was malaria.
When I got tested, they found out it was TB. They started to give me treatment, but there was no improvement. Then Médecins Sans Frontières found me and they started to give me treatment.
The drugs are very strong for me. I have been experiencing some side effects, like joint pain, and then burning pain in both legs and gastric pain. Sometimes I hear some sounds that I don’t know, like a “vvvrrr”, in my head, and my ears.
There was a time also when I had to be admitted to the hospital. I was so depressed, it was like I was going mad. They told me that this was also one of the side effects. I didn’t know. They stopped one of the drugs, one of the many drugs I was taking, and I got better.
I hope that that the drugs that I’m taking now are going to cure me. The drugs that I take, I take according to the prescription of a doctor. Normally in the morning I take 18, then in the evening, eight. A total of 26 a day.
