Things Your Doctor Can’t Do…

Maybe one day I’ll hang this list in the waiting room of my clinic:

  • I can’t cure your cold 
  • I can’t give you antibiotics for your cold
  • I can’t give you antibiotics for your flu
  • I can’t give you antibiotics for your diarrhoea of two days 
  • I can’t give you antibiotics for sinus congestion
  • I can’t give you morphine for your back pain
  • I can’t cure your back pain if you don’t lose weight
  • I can’t help you lose weight if you don’t eat right and exercise
  • I can’t help you with your diabetes if you don’t lose weight, exercise and eat right
  • I can’t help you with your high blood pressure if you don’t lose weight, exercise and eat right
  • I can’t help you with your chronic pain if you don’t lose weight, exercise and eat right
  • I can’t help you if you lie and say you are exercising and eating right
  • I can’t help you with recurrent chest infections if you keep smoking
  • I can’t reverse your Lung Cancer which was a result of your smoking
  • I can’t cure your depression / anxiety if you aren’t trying your very best to lead a life based on honourable work, forming meaningful social relationships, exercise and eating right
