Patient discussion about trainer

Q. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I am a bachelor who is staying with 5 more in a rented room which cost $10 a day. As I am unemployed, five other friends of mine are sharing the rent without taking a single dollar from me as they know my difficulties. I am a nutrition and wellness trainer. I lost my job 2 months back and searching for new one. As I do not have too much of money I also do not eat well. I am scared that I will get sick and not have enough of money for my hospitalization. Please tell me what to do?

A. Please don’t get sick at this point of time both mentally and physically. You could be a nutritionist but you have to learn to apply this to your life also. I am sure at least eat a vegetarian diet and get some nutrition. Do not neglect to eat proteins at least once in a while to prevent protein deficiency. Keep up your spirits, drink plenty of fluids, and keep your mind occupied. I am sure something will land up at your doorstep soon enough.
