THE LITTLE THINGS I IGNORED NEVER IGNORED ME!

February 16, 2020

Little things I ignored

Nkechi was a very promising young lady in her early 30’s. The song Brown skin girl was a perfect description of Nkechi. She had hopes of becoming a top model with global repute, she had dreams which were bigger than life itself like every Nigerian youth, but guess what? Life always has something in store for every one of us and that’s the truth.

She was an extremely busy lady, all the time she had was for her job, the only time she had for herself she spent fixing her nails, and dressing her hair, looking good was her topmost priority for all she cares, but guess what the little things she ignored, were gradually knocking at her door!

5 years ago, Nkechi lost her mother to a disease, and she didn’t even bother to find out what the disease was, even when her Doctor scheduled several appointments with her, she always told him ‘’ I’m busy, I don’t have time to come to that crowded hospital, where I will have to queue for hours to collect card to do a 5 minutes test, it’s frustrating please.’’  Even if her mother lost the battle her daughter could win the war!

However since she never cared, she never learnt! that the disease could be transmitted from mother to child during the process of child birth, she never knew it showed no signs and symptoms at its early phase, she never knew it had no cure like HIV/AIDS, and more importantly she never knew the process of dressing her hair and fixing her nails, she could even contract it if an infected needle was used by her hair dresser, in this game of life they say ignorance isn’t an excuse!

One faithful morning, while scrolling through her phone on Instagram she came across the story of a girl who was sharing her experience about her journey managing a disease, how very expensive the diseases was, Nkechi decided to go for a test as she felt extremely empathetic and could relate this girl symptoms with what her mother complained to her about before she passed on.

After her test was conducted while waiting for her result she started thinking, what if it doesn’t turn out well, so many thoughts were going through her mind, but she had taken the bold step to determine her fate which was the right thing todo!

.

.

.

.

.

The verdict was to be passed as her Doctor called her to come into his office, he started by counseling and encouraging her that there are over 24 million Nigerians living with this disease, and some are leading normal lives, after which he told her she was hepatitis B positive, and guided her on how to go about her management.

Nkechi is now a big model in her industry, and she uses her position to advocate for people to get screened and vaccinated against hepatitis B, she always say “I can be infected but my dreams and future can’t be affected when I take control, however prevention is cheaper than management, so get tested and vaccinated.”
