Suffering from MDR-TB
While on treatment, I had no idea that I would need psychological help. But when you take the drugs, you get side effects. I became nervous and apathetic. The psychosocial support that I received from MSF during my entire treatment was tremendously helpful. After six months of outpatient treatment, the doctor came to my house with the results of my last sputum tests: "Shakirake, I have good news for you, the test results are great. You have been cured!"
