Do not be a sheep

A family member just had his leg amputated. All that was wrong was two ill-treated toes.  It started from a botch surgery and questionable treatment from another clinic. It’s not our biased review. It’s the opinion of another medical doctor. The second opinion that we all wished we had gotten earlier.
It reminds me of how we should never completely put our trust on a professionals, especially when it comes to our health. My favourite episode in Law & Order has Robin Williams as a guest star. In the show, he lost his wife who was in labour because he trusted a quack doctor. The episode also spoke about Milgram’s Experiment, a series of psychology test to discover human’s obedience to authority figures.


Life has taught me this lesson: Do not blindly trust authority. Always think and do not be afraid to question.

Do not be a sheep.
