I have been cured of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) in Oman and when I came back from there, the doctor here in Sikkim said I have extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB). Before taking XDR TB medicines I was fine and gained weight. I used to have food well but now my situation has become worse. The moment I swallow the drug I puke it out. I don’t like food and am literally losing weight and have become weak. I even got admitted, my leg was locked. I am becoming worse and sad. I think I will die soon.
