Q. How can I know that my doctor is good? You must check and test your doctor. How do i check or test my doctor? I will tell you here...

A. so doctor, what do you recommend me to do. which choices do i have? hm, what i know is, that if you continue straight away we will crash in this ice-berg. you as captian, you will have to sink with your boat, because this is a question of your honour. me as your doctor i will look that i can take an emergency boat to save my life and help somebody else. so doctor, what can we do. your doctor can then say: you have to make a maneuvre. you can't for sure go on like this on you way (life/habit). so he/she should be able to explain you how to deal with the engines, the sails, whatever to avoid the crash. if he/she has no idea, change your doctor, if he/she tells you to need more help about it, find out together, he/she is at least honest - so give her/him a chance to grow with you. i have the hope that i could reach you with these explanations.
