One of the reasons I love working in the ravine is that the people have figured out what can be treated medically and what can not. At clinic, I'm not so lucky.
"Miss Kez, I need some meds for my son. He's not fat enough."
"Don't you have something that can make my hair more beautiful?"
"Every time I climb a hill, I get out of breath. What's wrong with me?"
"My toddler has had these strange red bumps on the exact same spot on both his feet for 3 days....Well, yes these are new sandals that I bought for him 3 days ago. What do they have to do with the red bumps on his feet?"
"When I eat too much, my stomach hurts."
"Doc, too many women love me."
"I need medicine. You see, every now and then, I have to pee!"
Yes sir. I love running clinic in Haiti :)
