DIDI is in urgent need of surgery after being attacked while walking home.
On the 7th of November, I was coming back from getting food to eat for the night. I was walking my usual route only to be attacked again. It happened so fast, but all I can say is that I was walking home and the next minute I was momentarily dazed. The impact of a bottle hitting my eye and I could feel blood trickling down. Pain like I've never known before being my comfort. I passed out. It was after the second day that my friend and some of the nurses told me in details what happened after I went unconscious. They said I was going in and out of the theater. They needed to stitch my torn bleeding eye. According to them, I was rushed to two different hospitals who rejected me, on the ground that they don't deal with emergency situations as critical as they were seeing. At last ,the third hospital admitted me. I've been running series of scans, X-rays. Taking meds, with different eye drops.
My other eyes vision is blurry and when I strain it, I am embraced with teary and pounding headache. According to the Doctors prognosis, my retina has been damaged and I have been referred to a specialist whose yet to give his diagnosis. Till now I'm still in shock of how it happened. Some of the people (who are aware of my previous attack) and my friend, still suspect that it is linked from my last transphobic attack where a group of thugs attacked me . Nothing is sure for now, until I regain my sight cos that's all that matters.
