“The disease does not discourage me, it makes me stronger”
Liliana G. is 28, she is a real estate agent and in October she was admitted to the “Marius Nasta” Institute of Pulmonology where she was diagnosed with multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
I was not even aware that tuberculosis still existed. The doctor here told me: “You are suspected of TB”. I had the tests done and the results showed that the disease was resistant. For me, it was a shock. I did not even know what resistance meant… Then, I found out. I had expected to stay in hospital for three months at most, then to go home and go on with the treatment for six to eight months, but I was told it was going to last longer. I am here since October 18, and I’m supposed to leave mid-December.
I have a degree in psychology and I told myself I had to be able to be in control of this.
