There was a scene when patients were about to go to botanical garden and one man bowed over the wheel of the bus. Someone told him: “yes, it’s a tyre” and he said: “yes, I know it’s a tyre. I’m not an idiot” This scene shows us that sometimes we treat ill people like they would be “not as intelligent as” we – healthy people – are. It’s sad because we behave like we would be “better” or “smarter” whereas those ill people can teach as much more than we could ever think of.
