Nengah Ngetis has never been married, she lives with her nephew; Komang Selamet (M/38 year old) who suffers from epilepsy that can relapse anytime – it’s unpredictable, sometimes it occurs 3-5 times a day, but sometimes it doesn’t for a whole week. Within 1 month, on average it occurs 20-25 times, which is why they sleep together, so she knows when her nephew relapses right away. “I’ve become this thin from taking care of my nephew, because I have to stay up all night if he relapses,” she said.
