Living with TB - my experience
Monica was raised in a small town called Kohima in North East India. In 2015 she was diagnosed with TB for which she was treated for more than two years. Monica experienced a difficult treatment regimen which included daily injections for nine months and oral medication throughout the duration of her illness. Monica experienced many problems when living with TB including stigma and many difficult side-effects.
