Its that time of the year again to get in the spirit of being with family and having splendid fun, hohoho...
It is so sad to see new –DR TB patients being admitted to hospital for the 1st time especially in this time of the year... I am sure they have that same question that I once had “WHY ME?” Oh well they just need to accept, hey. Guess that is the way things were meant to be.
WELL MEDECINES SANS FRONTIERES organized the end of year function for –DR TB patients [HOW SHWEET IS THAT], well I attended, it was by the pools here in Khayelitsha. The were games being played, speeches being made, OH OH, and some food of course. We got certificates certifying that we commenced treatment for Drug Resistant TB.
It is so inspirational getting encouragement from those who are helping you to live. No organization that I know of can do something like this for their patients, this is the 1st... I bow for the team MEDECINS SANS FRONTIERES, they are doing more than expected, by encouraging the patients not to get bored/tired, to eat/drink their medicines because they know the strain of drinking +/- 20 tablets and on top of that these tablets make you sick day in and day out. [NO WONDER THE ARE SO MANY DEFAULTS] luckily MSF will not chase you away, they will intervene.
IS THE FUN YET ENDED..... GUESS WHAT???????
On the 16th of December > day of RECONCILIATION here in South Africa
Lets all enjoy the festive season having a MERRY CHRISTMAS with family and a prosperous NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
