I went to the a government hospital because it cheaper.Despite the fact that i was going to wait in the que for a long time but at least i would get treatment.Only to sit in the que for the first 2hours awaiting registration then for another one hour awaiting to see the doctor.
This is what a poor common woman or child goes through in a government full of unused regulations.I had a sharp pain between my pelvic born and ribcage only to be told," there is some dirt in your urinary tract so just buy the following drugs and you would be fine".I did exactly as i had been told so as to ease myself off the pain.
It is was only the beginning of a problem to be discovered later on.I obediently took the drugs never even missed a single dose until i was done with it.Only the pain to re-appear after a few days so i had to solicit for money from my closest friends and had to seek for the attention of a private doctor where i was diagnosed with kidney infections only to get half of the medication.The situation was critical that i needed an admission but i said "No i do not have enough money let me just rejuvenate at home.Thanks to God i have regained my health.All this are dire consequences of lack of information on health issues and due to lack of knowledge.
Women are made more vulnerable because of taboos and superstitions like for my case i could not tell it to my boyfriend because it is a taboo to discuss about the reproduction system openly.I there fore encourage all pulseraians to help each other as women understand our health issues well.
As long as the government addresses the issues of poverty and having kenyans get a new constitution then we will reduce the chances of many women dying due to poor diagnosis of diseases.Let the constitution stand in for the poor and not the rich and the able men!!!!!!
