Overcoming illness, depression mastering life
In the summer, Nguyen Hong Quan (26 years old) temporarily put aside his job as a shipper to develop a motorbike tour. Suffering from a rare disease, a severe allergy to almost all antibiotics, treatment for a year, a total of 11 emergency hospital admissions, Quan had to drop out of school after finishing grade 11.
Later, when he saw that his peers went to college, then got a stable job, he was quite self-deprecating and felt like a burden on his family. The pessimism makes Quan think a lot, leading to nervous system disorders, stress and signs of depression.
