Michael Bendicio Arizala
I'm Michael Arizala aged 37 years and I'm from Antipolo City in the
Philippines. I'm the victim of bacterial meningitis.
On 31 July 2012 I got a fever first then I felt vomiting and nausea. After two days I still felt the same and at 6pm my wife took me to hospital because I was unconscious at that time.
In the hospital the doctors did several examinations such as chest x-ray, blood chemistry and a lumbar puncture, until they diagnosed me with bacterial meningitis. The doctors gave me an antibiotic and other drugs to kill the bacteria and after 15 days treatment I felt better. After six months of taking the medicine I slowly recovered but I have severe hearing problems in my right ear and trouble with my eyesight. I cant buy the hearing aid because of lack of money.
I'm still working but I easily become tired and my body is slightly out of balance.
This is my story and I'm still praying for my full recovery.
