” I remember my exams were close and I was studying, I went to get a glass of water after that I was not in my senses. When I woke up I was in the hospital, I asked my mother to go home as I had to study, she told me that I have been in the hospital for two and a half days. It was very different for me, being 16 years girl I couldn’t understand anything. I came home and presumed that I am fine, slowly I started feeling changes in my body.”
She further added that doctors used to prescribe pills to put it under the tongue. Later, during graduation, she started having fits, and the treatment got started.
Additionally, she also talked how her family used to hide her disease from people, since it was considered taboo back then.
“If someone asked my family, what has happened to her, they used to say nothing she is just not feeling well. When we had to go somewhere, my parents used to say me to put my medicine under my tongue, and not to do something there. And I always used to say that I am not doing anything intentionally, it happens to me.”
