I went to a village in India and it was more of a rural area and it was a lot like the jungle. I went to teach blind kids conversational English and they already had some basic skills but I helped them expand on it and become more confident. The trip was great but after I came back I wasn’t feeling very well at all. And it started with a normal fever and my back was hurting a lot. But I just sort of shrugged off the pain and I slept a lot. I began to realize that I was sleeping days on end, like the entire day. And I was still tired after I woke up. That’s when I realized that something was wrong because my fever had persisted through four days. It was around 102 degrees. After that I decided I should go visit the doctor and he told me that I had a throat infection. And I didn’t know what else it could have been so we just went along with that. But after that, the symptoms became a lot worse, I couldn’t walk anymore, I began to feel really dizzy, I started throwing up, my arms felt like they were burning. It was a really painful experience overall. We decided to go back to the doctor and I went back to him in a wheelchair and that’s when he said, Well we’ll just wait one more day and then we’ll have you admitted but you should just shrug it off, you’ll be fine, it’s just an infection and keep on taking the antibiotic’ My family and I went to a party that night because the doctor told me to do normal things instead of sleeping, and that’s when I fell over. So they admitted me to the ER and that’s when the doctors found out that I had dengue. There’s no cure for it, so you just have to rely on your immune system and hope that it picks up on its own. My friend’s grandpa passed away because of this so it was quite a frightening experience but I got over it, thank God, Coppell High School senior Asha Reddy said. Photo by Amanda Hair.
