So, for those of us who drink Panadol for their “afo-ochi chi “, before you swallow the next tablet please ask if you are doing the right thing. It is said that knowledge is power. Often times we are misdiagnosed by quack doctors who have no training in the field they practice. Life is too precious to be toiled with. Please do not be shy to reach out for help at any time.
