It is unthinkable that someone exposes others to a debilitating disease simply because they feel it concerns no one that they are sick. Fear of being discarded may lie beneath such attitude. Even worse are those who refuse treatment and propagate illness without the least remorse.

Presently, people travel the world freely. In some countries, some illnesses have been eradicated. Unfortunately, when traveling, you may become exposed and contract one of these, never doubting that you have, until symptoms become evident. Sometimes, you may be misdiagnosed because, in your country, this illness no longer exists or even worse, has never existed!

Educated awareness and cautiousness are essential to prevent outbreaks. It is imperative that you be well-informed, take preventive measures and notify your medical advisor of the countries you have visited before your symptoms occurred.

When convinced that there is no need and that you are just fine, you may resist any testing. When diagnosed, you may resist treatment. If against vaccination, you may shun upon being protected in this way, considering the possible effects a greater risk than the vaccine protection’s benefits.

Now that many diseases are curable, hearsay may down-play the danger of contracting such illnesses. It is often when many are ill that care posters, advertising the dangers to all those at risk, are promptly posted. Do consult a specialized practitioner when in doubt! Ask for a second opinion if necessary when symptoms persist. When a diagnosis has been confirmed, do follow instructions carefully, treat yourself well and take the necessary measures to protect those around you.

Your immediate entourage trusts you. Even is you are feeling guilty for contracting a disease, it is your responsibility to inform those around you so they can protect themselves adequately. You will be respected for having the courage to let them know promptly so they can seek council as well.

A global social conscience needs to exist in everyone. It is our world. We need to inform, educate and protect our people.
Have a nice week. Happy Trails,
