My Story: 'Constant Pain Does Not Deter Me'
Saturday 14 October 2017
From Kenyan newspaper the Daily Nation:
MY STORY: ‘Constant pain does not deter me’
Throughout her life, Benedettah Wangui Mwangi has been living with constant body pain. This is because she suffers from fibromyalgia, a health condition without cure. It causes pain all over the body, brings fatigue, and causes problems with the function of the arms, mobility, breathing, swallowing, balance, memory, sleep and mood.
This condition started to manifest during her childhood in Kinangop, Nyandarua County.
“Wounds would take very long to heal. A little bruise would get septic and spread into a big wound that would take months to heal,” says the single mother of one. If it wasn’t the struggle to heal wounds, Benedettah would be down with hay fever or tonsillitis. Hospital jabs were part of her life.
