Doctor, Medicine and the Side Effects

If you had ever felt that meeting doctor cured half of your sickness, I would be more than happy to vote for you. I believe I’ll be accompanied by many who experienced the same.

No doubt that sickness brings our loved ones very near to our hearts no matter what. We keep on remembering them; we become desperate to have them near by. We can not quite disagree to call this as side effect of the sickness apart from the obvious of such health related side effects.

By the way, side effects of medicine are well known I guess. But what if the side effects come in the form of our own thoughts and eventually act as medicine to reduce the sickness in to rubble?

Well, let me be specific here; I bought some medicine couple of days back as I was not keeping well. The sooner I bought the medicine I felt the sickness taking back seat. As I didn’t get the happenings clear, I recollected the same phenomenon happened to me when I met the doctor last time.

Now I realized, at times buying medicine also works positive in reducing the sickness, may not be in the form of medicine as such but definitely in the form of a catalysts in reducing our thoughts of our own sickness.

Once a doctor told me, pain is very subjective. The more you think the more you feel the pain. I wouldn’t support the same in accordance with the sickness but the same equation works well to an extent. The more we think that we are sick the sick we become; mental sickness is the worst form of all kinds.

Words of doctors work well. Of course it is up to the belief we have on the doctor. Usually we believe them; once I wanted to meet ENT specialist. By the time I reached the hospital he had already left. I had no choice than ending up getting checked up by another doctor. That night I took the medicine but couldn’t sleep well. Lately I realized that the mental disturbance I felt that night was of the doubt I had on the medicine given by him.

Not that the doctor was wrong but the communication gap played it’s role. Mother tongue is the best form of communication. Any way, I met the doctor whom I wanted to meet the next day and by that evening I was back in my fit forms.

The effected thoughts and the eventual energy we feel being the side effects medicine and the doctors have the final say!

Docs and words do the cure. I know many of your kind who are very specific about a doc - personilsed medication is a must for them.:)

How are you keeping now? Read all pending posts. I agree one should be practical but at the same time not losing basic nature. I fully agree what you said in Mismatch. If not resolved by mutual understanding it can lead to major problems in life. Boss should carry the team along and not drive them. It is how we think which matters a lot when we are sick. One should take rest and concentrate that body safety mechanism is good to fight whatever sickness is.

Take care
