Ifedayo who HSENations understands is the second Managing Partner at AGS Tribe said;

“COVID19 is real and it hit me like a truck but I am thankful for healing.

June tested my existence. On the 1st of June, I woke up in s0000 much pain! It started with headaches first, then body pains. I went into the hospital and I was diagnosed of bacterial infection.

I was restless, in pain, I was then admitted. All the meds/injections they gave me didn’t work. I was discharged but

I went back on Friday and Saturday to complain that I wasn’t getting better… at this point, I couldn’t really talk again. It felt like I had 3 safety pins in my throat and the inner part of my neck was sewn together.

Then a doctor randomly said I should just try to get tested for COVID since nothing was working, she then gave me a number to one of the centers on the island. I called them, till date, they didn’t get back to me.


I got tested with the Rapid Antigen test and I was POSITIVE! My life flashed before my eyes….


My self isolation started. Anytime I took Methodex, it felt like I was drinking fire! I was porging uncontrollably. I was in excruciating pain.

On the 15th, I went to NIMR to do another test, I was still positive. Finally, on the 27th, I was tested negative and I’m just here to thank God and you all know that COVID19 is BLOODY REAL! Stay SAFE!”
