I have this painful condition of onchocerciasis for two and a half years. For lack of insurance I have been misdiagnosed, thrown out of emergency rooms and told never to come back. I came back twelve hours later from miles from home with nothing done. I've emailed, Facebooked, and called almost everyone on Google for help. It's now on my face, my eyes are cloudy and I've been falling asleep without warning more frequently, to wit I feel I'm not going to wake up from.
