Buddha Vacana (DPR: October 21, 2555)
Possessed of five qualities, a sick person is of much help to himself. What five? He knows what medicine is good for him, he knows the right measure in his treatment, he takes the medicine, he describes his illness to the nurse who cares for him out of kindness, saying: ‘It comes like this. It goes like this. When it is there it is like this,’ and he endures the various pains of the sickness.
<Note.1: This is perhaps the goal of personal (and community) healthcare. This model focuses on one's own self personal understanding of the sickness and one's own self management of the sickness. Doctors and murses are hekpers in the healing process of one's own personal care -- they are not magicians who can grant "your" wishes.>
