Have you noticed situations where people who are really ill are kept in the hospital untreated and probably for a very long time? If you watch Nigerian movies, you would know what I’m talking about. It happens in a lot of movies. It also happens a lot in real life. People get sick and they are left in the hospital while their families go about looking for money to foot the bills. A lot of times, illnesses like these don’t “announce” that they are coming. The affected person probably didn’t even see himself or herself stuck on a hospital bed. The stress that we go through every day to make ends meet alone is enough to break one down.
Some people say that they do not fall ill. But when people like this do, it’s usually very bad. Let’s say it’s actually true and you never fall ill. What about those around you? What about your family and friends? It’s one thing to take care of oneself. It’s another to be prepared in case of unexpected events. You don’t want to lose your loved ones or have them lose you when you could have just done things differently. Prevention is better than cure, but what happens when you couldn’t successfully prevent it and you need to get a cure?
