Clara is a 76-year-old black woman who was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 59. Some months later, however, she suffered from convulsive attacks.
“My mother said I had had these crises when I was a little girl, but she never took me to the doctor. Since I made my debut, I have been on treatment at the National Institute of Neurology,” she indicated.
“She suffers from convulsive attacks when she has high blood pressure, a fever or some strong emotion. Her lips begin to tremble; that is the only sign she shows,” stressed her son Fidel, who lives with her and takes her to the doctor’s whenever required.
