This post is about my early teens. It’s about some nurses, too.
I had gone to the hospital for medical attention. And I happened to ‘fall into’ the hands of a careless nurse.
She spoke huskily, ‘Turn your bombom lemme chook you.’
So, I turned my bombom to be chooked – whatever that means. LOL.Is N175 worth more than a life? Click To Tweet
After I was injected, I couldn’t walk right with my right leg (no pun intended).
I was semi-paralyzed. I stumbled on the road as I attempted to cross the junction.
My footsteps became akin to that of a one-legged chicken, struggling to make use of the other leg.
That was a crazy day. It seemed the monitoring spirits had somehow had access to my life.
I cursed the nurse and the hospital. I knew few cuss words, so, you know… I didn’t curse them well enough.
Several days, it left. Not mysteriously but gradually: a massage here and another massage there.
Few days ago, I thought about that crazy day and what must’ve led to that: the injection or the nurse’s placement.
I couldn’t make an accurate pick but I’ll pitch my tent with the injection needle and what it can undo if it’s not used properly; in this case, if it’s recycled on several humans.
In several cities of the developing world (especially), there are injection needles being used and re-used: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, etc.
Over and over like your fave track on repeat.
They’re being used like spoons in your nuclear family. You eat with, rinse and repeat the eating process.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.
If it was a spoon, that’s understandable but being an injection needle with a propinquity to infection by blood or mucus, it’s a source for HIV and other diseases.
How much does an injection needle cost? On Amazon, it’s $0.78/needle = circa N175.

Several years ago, Marc Koska answered this question with the invention of the K1 auto-disable syringe which breaks on impact (once it’s used on someone or something… anything at all).
He understands the medical ratio for treatment: One Injection = One Syringe.
