I'm Yassine and This is the story of my brother who died because of meningitis. I telling this story that started on the 15th sep 2016, With a broken heart. My brother ilyasse was just 26 years old then. He's 3 years older then me.
Everything started with him having high temperature and headaches. At first we thought it's just a normal headache or fever. So he just took some headaches pills like doliparne. By that time we didn't know that the meningitis was destroying him from inside.
The next day, an other symptoms showed up, he was saying some non sense things when we talked to him. my mother was taking care of him, till that point we didn't consider that this might be some dangerous medical issue. And also we are the kind of people who doesn't go to the hospital unless it's something really bad happening. So, later that night i return from work and he seemed to be fine a little bit we even talked to him and take him out side near the house!
I remember there was a wedding in the same street of next to our house and there were some friends gathering so he wanted to check them up. So he did. but he could stand for 10 min and he told me that he wanted to go back to his room. The next day. He couldn't reply to our questions. Then we were really worried, so, we decided to take him to a specialist to do a check up. He couldn't move so we took him to the car, then we drove there.
The doctor said there is medical Issue but he doesn't know what the problem was and he advice to be taken immediately to the hospital. We took him to the nearest hospital but they didn't even want to get him in and check him up and they said the hospital is full and also that they don't have the necessary equipments ! I felt like it's a lie. Because i know that the public hospitals in my country are the worst literally. So, we took him to an other Public hospital because we didn't have the enough money to afford a private clinic. Anyway ! When we reach the hospital called IBN TOFAIL that exists in Morocco.
