If you know you will eventually go to the hospital, please do go there first.
What shall it profit you to go everywhere and anywhere and then eventually come to a real hospital when options are few and limited.
You have diabetes and you are convinced by friends and others to stop taking your medications and you immediately thrash your medications and you start munching bitter leaves, bitter kola and alcoholic bitters like because according to them, it will cure you of diabetes.
Subsequently, you miss all your appointments as you think diabetes is all about sugar control.
Well yeah, you noticed your sugar control is better, but you are feeling more unwell and you seem not to realize, your kidneys are going on strike.
You are diabetic, you have a boil and you allow ‘the enemy’ to use you to burst it and you keep dressing the wound at home even when it is obvious the wound is going left and becoming worse. To explain it away, you are told you stepped on ‘poison’ (diabolic) and you have to also use diabolic means to treat it.
You know your issues, diabetes, but you are deceived, because someone that speaks Queen’s English and has a visa puts your hand in a phoney machine and gives you highfalutin diagnosis and tells you to discard your regular medications.
I know the end of the story and it is usually not in your favour.
Please take your medications, instructions and appointments seriously and don’t take medical decisions based on hearsay or assumption.
