Chinese medicine

Prompt ~

flowers with Ice-Janet Webb (2)

Copyright-Janet Webb

The not so old lady extended her deformed hand to pick up the Chinese-tablets her nephew had brought for her. She could not hold on to it with the badly twisted fingers and the hydrangea flowers seemed to beckon her from the picture on it.

The medicines prescribed by the doctors had made her sick with nausea, stomach pain and sore tongue. She recovered only after she stopped taking all medicines and it took almost a month.

She decided not to believe all the chang-shan nonsense. She had seen cattle and pets vomit and poo blood after eating hydrangea.

  1. I know several people who got worse instead of better after taking what the doctor prescribed. I agree with Alicia, we need to listen to our bodies. Great message conveyed with this use of the prompt.

I love arguments
