Several people asked me how they can ask their partners to get tested. It doesn’t look good and all, even a friend of mine said ‘they might start beating me Ayesha’ and I simply said ‘just for once think of your generation that beating won’t be anything then’.
Can’t we think about it? Is it too hard? Will you be able to bear if your kid points his finger at you and say ‘Dad/Mom, you are responsible for my illness, will you be able to bear to see your kid getting pricked for needles, and all? No… you won’t be…
So why can’t you take step and go get tested?? Why not?
It’s so hard to get your partner tested? Okay don’t ask them for it, go and get tested YOURSELF, and if GOD forbid you get some irregular result then you can ask your partner to get tested, if result is normal that it doesn’t matter if your partner carries Thalassemia Minor gene, because it won’t do any harm, maybe just a kid or two will carry minor gene, that’s it.
Is it still hard?
You guys might think I might have pointed finger at my parents too? Or maybe I feel bad having Thalassemia that is why am writing such things, such posts, No… I have seen kids of 2 years old at the transfusion center, even kids younger than that, how they get pricked, how they cry, how nurses get their veins, if you see yourself you will feel like crying… I bet you for that.
And just after seeing all this since for so long, I really want to save our next generation; can’t you guys step ahead and help me? I don’t want another kid to get pricked because of lack of awareness please?
Please guys…! Please…! I beg you…!
Just a blood test can save your generation, what else you want now? Don’t ask your partner for the test, just go yourself first….! If you can’t even do that… then it’s simply useless to tell you anything…
