I wake up to the smell of death. I am shocked with all the horror around me. I am hopeless and terrified of what might happen. So many have died I fear that I might have this deadly sickness. I am desperate for help, there has to be a cure. All my loved ones have died around me. Now I am worried that I might be next.
