I Need Your Prayers



Yesterday, I went to the clinic to submit my second phlegm sample and for the reading of my skin test. I arrived in the clinic around 11 A.M. I went straight to the laboratory to submit my second phlegm sample. After that I went to the other room where my skin test will be read. I was afraid since I have already researched about the Mantoux test and Tuberculosis. I have an idea of what my result would be depending on the size of the redness of my skin. The first reading of the clinic staff is 10mm. She was having trouble in reading the exact measurement so we went to the doctor for him to check if it’s right. The doctor’s reading is 15mm. Based on my research if you reach 15mm or higher that means you are infected with the Tuberculosis virus. I asked the nurse what is the implication of that reading. She then told me that I was infected.

Since the recruitment agency told me that I need to get the complete results this week, I talked to the nurse if they can make my doctor’s appointment for July 16 earlier. I repeatedly explained to her my case that I won’t be able to get the job if my result won’t be released within this week. Sadly, the doctor is only available on the 16th. The other option that I have is to get all the results then have it read by a different doctor. The problem is I will be paying more for a Respiratory specialist. That would be more than 70 SGD compared to the consultation fee of 12 SGD in the clinic.

The recruitment agency called me and asked for the result of the skin test. I told her that I was positive according to the skin test and the definite result would be out on July 16 on my doctor’s appointment. She told me that it would be too late for the job. She also told me that she would contact the employer to ask on what to do. On her next call, as expected the employer withdrew me from the job. They were afraid that I would infect other employees. The recruitment officer told me that if I am clear already, I can call her back and she will look for another job for me.

I hope and pray that this is not Tuberculosis. I have to wait until July 16 to know the result to know my next move. I’m scared and I am afraid for the safety of the people around me. Please pray for me. I need your prayers…

I can relate to your situation Makoy. My colleague had the same situation when we were both applying to my current job. I was hired and he was deferred until the findings were cleared.
If ever it is TB, which I hope and pray that its not, it is curable. Lets hope for the best. You have our prayers.

You are included in my prayers Makoy. Trust in Him. He knows what's best for us.

Do your best and leave the things you can't do anything about - to Him.

Take care.

hi,
I hope it is not what you are thinking. How come you will have that disease? Do you have a hereditary of such?
Just pray to God.

lahat ng bagay may dahilan, basta relax ka lang... tsaka kung sakaling positive nga wag ka mag-alala, bacteria lang naman yan, hindi virus... nasa likod mo loang kami... ambon lang yan!

Makoy im really sad about this. dont worry i alwys nclude u in my prayers.
Worrying will just aggravate your condition in case the result is positve, atsaka madali gamutin yan.
