Kenyan Hospitals Part 2:I almost beat up a doctor in Nairobi Women's and Nairobi Hospital told me to go to a cheaper hospital7:34:00 AM
To get this story, you need to read part 1 So yesterday morning I left the house huuuuuuungry for days thanks to the new meds which had made me sleep forever. My main ambition was to get my med
tampered tapered down but I was kicked out of Nairobi Women's hospital for almost beating the doctor who injected me with valium when I was unconscious and she was clearly told not to, then kicked out of Nairobi hospital so I went to Java for their full breakfast and I ate that plus their big samosa then crossed over to Nairobi Women's where I unfortunately had a seizure. Minutes or hours later, I woke up to find myself on the floor, apparently I fell off the bed and learnt that the doctor who had been specifically told not to put valium in my system had done that and wanted to admit me. I almost beat her up but fortunately my brother and Fred were there to restrain me. I have never been the violent type so I blame that medicine and high dosage.
So we marched out of Nairobi Womens, went to Doctors Plaza near Nairobi Hospital but we were told they don't work on Sundays and decided to go to Nairobi Hospital where I was kept waiting for 30 minutes and it wasn't until I had a seizure that they attended to me giving me what again, valium and that is when they say I was violent but I was resisting admission and another valium injection, then had another seizure and when my pals agreed I should be admitted we where told to get a cheaper hospital like Avenue Hospital as their psychiatric unit was under renovation and I was a danger to be admitted in the general ward. I had money to pay for the deposit....so where do I go...all I want is my med tampered down so that I don't sleep the whole day and I am able to help the millions of Kenyans who rely on me. Where do persons w/ mental health conditions go and seen as humans of sound mind with needs and plans for themselves? I wont lie but I feel very discriminated because I have had this illness from 2003, I know what works and what doesn't, I know meds can be tampered down, I know how expensive admission is and that is money I'd have used on someone in Wajir or elsewhere looking to travel to Mathari because there are no psychiatric services there.
Today I will try Coptic, Mater and Avenue and see what happens. Keep it here.
