How to self medicate.

This week on #thelittlebigthingsthatmakeushealthy.

“I’m afraid we’ll have to take your right foot off. The orthopedic team will be around to see you shortly.” The senior reg. said as he walked away to another bedside. Fifteen minutes of history taking later and we’d arrived at the same confluence as with 60% of the patients. Papa had a wound, papa is diabetic; hasn’t been to the hospital in months, despite the doctor’s insistence on regular checkups. He googled “How to treat a wound that is not healing” on wiki how and went on with the said tips.

Two months later, his right foot is to be amputated.

Before you say “Not my portion.” remember the anti-malarial drugs you took two weeks ago and how when your body didn’t show any improvements you diagnosed it as typhoid, and went on to treat it.

Shullai tell you of the woman who came to the clinic with her diagnosis of thyroiditis, when all she was had was insomnia due to change of environment?

You know how these things are. Stop feeding your mind with fear sponsored by the internet’s ability to blow things out of proportion.

Make healthy choices. Always visit a physician for medication.

As always, I’m rooting for your health. 💜

With love,
Your healthtechie.
