So before last week I was on the right track and blogging regularly. But on Saturday I started feeling slightly sick. I just ignored it and I was like it’ll probably go away. But by Sunday night it got really bad. So I decided to go to the doctor on Monday and get it over with.
Unfortunately, the doctor misdiagnosed my symptoms and gave me the wrong medicines. Which literally made me feel like I was dying. I have seriously never felt that bad in my life.
So I went to a different doctor recommended by a friend and she at least diagnosed me correctly. However, even after asking her to give me mild medicines since I am sensitive to most medications she still gave me really strong medicines. The next day not only was I super sick but now my face and half my body had broken out in rashes.
They were super red and itchy and I had no idea what to do. So I went to a third doctor and he told me they were an allergic reactions to the meds I was taking. And that it was a really high dose of a very strong medicine. I was pretty pissed considering I had told her I wanted something super mild. But I just let it go since she was just trying to do her job (not very well though).
Anyway now that I’m off all the meds, except the allergy ones, I feel much better and I think I’m going to be fine soon. Moral of the story: Don’t get sick in Kenya unless you know a really good doctor (and if you know a really good doctor in Nairobi let me know because I am not going through this again!)
Also I realized I forgot to mention what I had last week- it was swollen lymph nodes, a throat infection, fever and a runny nose.

Aw sorry to hear this. It sucks when doctors mess you up even more than when you went to them in the first place. I hope you feel better soon. 🙂
Thank you so much and I’m already feeling better now that I’ve stopped listening to the doctors 😂
