Patient Modesty: Volume 18
NOTICE: AS OF TODAY JUNE 14, 2009 "PATIENT MODESTY: VOLUME 18" WILL BE CLOSED FOR FURTHER COMMENTS. YOU CAN CONTINUE POSTING COMMENTS ON VOLUME 19
Continuing on with the discussions of patient modesty, I want to add to the mix the consideration, as expressed in the above graphic, of whether there is such a thing as a "false modesty", a path which if followed could lead to late or inadequate diagnosis and treatment and misery, if not debility and death. On the other path, the direction is that of "good health" ignoring modesty and leading to the goal of "happiness". Just something to think about, put in a graphic form. ..Maurice.
Graphic: "Which Way Will You Choose", an illustration from an old sex hygiene manual, taken from Wikipedia
and modified by me with ArtRage. Instead of the path "sex hygiene" I substituted the words "Good Health".
