Being sick is horrible. You don't feel like yourself. You feel drained. You don't want to do much.
Thank Allah we have medicine to make life bearable.
I got to thinking however, there are many diseases and illness that are a natural progression. But how many illness are cause by us humans because of our ever expanding technology?
An example would be swimming pools. Public swimming pools are a great place, it is clean and fun. To keep it clean they need to put chlorine into the pool, but this can cause skin welts and rashes. So to combat this, we put on vaseline and wash with aqueous cream.
Another would be side effects to drugs e.g. the pill makes woman fat etc
How many other illnesses are caused by our need to have a better life, a more comfortable life.
