The other day, numbness started in my arms and feet. After a while, I couldn’t move my arms and feet at all. When we went to the university hospital, they injected muscle relaxants, which was on my body. The poison spread more. I collapsed on the floor while trying to get up at night. I couldn’t get up. We came to the Training and Research Hospital, all the tests were done, but the results were clean. They took me under observation, then my respiratory muscles were gone, then I was taken to the intensive care unit and intubated. I was intubated for 22 days, intensively for four and a half months. “I stayed in the care. Then I came to the physical therapy service. Here, too, our teachers supported me. They helped me to stand up and walk. I can take a step now. The happiness of the time I started to take a step cannot be described. I thought that I would never be able to take a step. The happiness of the time I started to take a step cannot be described.”
