What does having Ebola feel like?
It’s difficult to describe. I’m a very healthy person. It was my first experience with having a sickness like this. It’s very very bad. You’re extremely weak, with intense fatigue. You can’t do anything. You’re vomiting, and you’re having fever, and a headache. It’s not like malaria. Malaria, you can be walking around, and you can take your medicine. Ebola is very very different. It’s like your body doesn’t belong to you anymore. You feel helpless. Someone needs to care for you at all times.
