Whoever said,'Health is a great blessing' probably,wasn't kidding.
Being sick,is the worst feeling in the whole world.When you don't feel well from the inside,nothing looks well on the outside too.
Recently,my Father fell sick,he was complaining about his Liver,and he had a fever,and kept on vomitting and shivering and back aches and headaches-in short,he was VERY sick,but despite our (My moms,mine,my brothers and my sister-in-law's)thousands of plea's and requests,he didn't go to see a Doctor.
It happens all the time.It's like this,everytime someone in our family falls sick,my Father is usually the first one to protest against the idea of going to a Doctor.I don't know why,but he says that if you go to see a Doctor,he would tell you whats wrong,but with that,he would also tell you what else is wrong too,they just want to take/make money out of you,they don't care about your health and bla bla bla.
I tend to disagree,although I too,do not really like going to Doctors,(maybe,I inherrited this trait from my Dad lol) but I do agree,that if you do go to one,they do let you know whats wrong and what treatment or cure should be given,they give you all the medicines you need,they look after you and before you know it your'e good as new.And yet,of course,there are also times when Doctors have made cases worse.But why risk it?Why risk your own health,sitting at home,doubled over with pain,wasting time,making yourself and people around you anxious and worried sick,when you can go to someone who can actually be good for your health?
My Father,waits for the last minute,when he himself or some other member of the family reaches a particular point,where they just cannot take it anymore,and they HAVE HAVE HAVE,GOT GOT GOT to see a Doctor.If it's my Father who is the patient,even after he has reached the ultimate point of Painfulness,he still needs lots of convincing before he actually GOES to see a Doctor,he'd much rather prefer his own home than a Hospital.This 'convincing' is usually done by my elder sister,who has gained quite a reputation in our house,for being that one person who can convince Dadyy Dearest to go see a Doctor.
So,finally,after lots of pleaseeeeeee's and pleasseeeesss's our Father finally,decided to go to the Doctor,and he found out that he has some Liver Infection,nothing really to worry about,but painful at the same time.And here,us (who were at home) were wondering,keeping the symptoms in mind,(feeling cold,high fever,shivering,nausea,backaches,headaches) that our Father is probably suffering from Malaria.
We are the Family of The Lost Causes.
Doctor,or no Doctor,we love our Daddy all the same.
Have a speedy recovery,God Bless.
