WHEN A TEENAGER LOSES THE WILL TO LIVE.

Linda was a seventeen year old girl. Like other girls her age, she liked going out without telling her parents. On one such occasion, she returned home and was scolded by her mother. In a fit of rage, Linda went into her room, opened a bottle of insecticide and swallowed the contents. She was dead a short while later.

Samuel was a 14 year old whose parents had decided to separate; he stayed with relatives under questionable conditions. One day Samuel disappeared. He was found 4 days later, hanging from a rope tied to a fan in a nondescript building. An apparent suicide.

We hear countless stories of teenagers who decide to take their lives for reasons that may not be clear or logical to us. In their own thinking, there is no point in continuing to live. It could be due to repeated failure in an exam, excessive bullying at school or displeasure over parents separation. Other reasons may be rejection from a loved one or substance abuse; the reasons are numerous and complicated.

SIGNS …

MALE URINARY PROBLEM.

"HELP! I CAN'T URINATE."Imagine - it is time for your evening meal - a plate of your favourite native delicacy, crowned with a bottle of your favourite drink, chilled to perfection.

" Aah!, life is good," you down the glistening liquid and settle down for a nap (afterall you've worked really hard).





Midway into your slumber, you have that expected urge to relieve yourself; lazily, you hobble to the bathroom, unzip in preparation to urinate
and nothing comes out. You try again, still nothing.

Panic!
Imagine the shock a grown man would feel, when he discovers he wants to urinate, has the energy to urinate, has all the resources to urinate, but urine just won't come out.




The above could be a symptom of an enlargement of the Prostate gland or worse still, an initial presentation of a Cancer of the Prostate gland.

WHAT IS THIS PROSTATE GLAND?Let's think of a road with freely flowing traffic. Imagine two trees on both sides of the road; imagine both trees …

EVER TASTED YOUR URINE?

Seriously, have you ever tasted your urine?

Well, my patient did - and - he enjoyed it.

Or more precisely, it tasted sweet.



Well, he had enough supply of urine anyway as he Urinated excessively.

That would be Clue 1.
Of serious concern to him was the fact that he could no longer satisfy his wife.





That would be Clue 2.
He did a test before coming to see me that morning which clinched the diagnosis that explains all the above.

That would be Clue 3.
Question : What was the Diagnosis?
