GOOD NEWS

During the past week I had a visit from a doctor and his medical students. Apparently my results came back and they are NEGATIVE >the dark clouds are starting to clear up again

Phumeza and pillsThat means the new drugs {linezolid and clofazimine} with the help of others are working just fine. That was the greatest news of the week.

Well, I also did an interview with one of the MSF guys and apparently I am one of the people featured in their 5 Lives report on HOW A FINANCIAL TRANSACTION TAX COULD SUPPORT GLOBAL HEALTH.This is a story of people that MSF works with everyday whose lives and health hang on thanks to a simple medical intervention.

All seems good so far, I just have to keep my faith – hope and trust that ALL will be well soon. This TB thing can change your life for the better, or lead to the worst – it just depends on how YOU as a person with it will have to deal with each and everyday struggle over a long time.

This is what I have learned:

1st accept that you have it, right?

2nd you have to know that your life depends on the medication you have to take each morning, right? Whether the medication makes you sick and vomit, you just have to live with that. At least it is for a good cause and the end of the day ALL WILL BE WELL.

We all started the race, but some will fall by the wayside. Some of us who have TB, unfortunately die and some just gave up on drinking their medication and some of us get a 2nd chance in life. >WELL WE ALL DESERVE THAT, RIGHT

But what good does it do when you give up on your own life?

I MEAN THEY ARE JUST TABLETS FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE!

You just have to push yourself and accept a little push from others of course, and then you get ready for the NEW RACE:

That race means being “’NORMAL”. I think “NORMAL” doesn’t apply to me any more. Well, I was able to hear and living a NORMAL life having a civil conversation. Now that’s all changed, just like that.... I guess I just have to accept it and move on, right? But move on to where????????
