Felina indicates that the authorities must do something about the witches tag that is hung on many simply because they are old.
According to her, she had to be sent to a government hospital in her area because of the damaging effects of the treatment she was being given prior to her 'confession'.
She thanks her stars and God that she got the brainwave to accept she was a witch quickly enough, as she is unaware of what would have become of her without that singular act.
