This article presents the author's view about taking pills to treat his disease. He explains that there is a part in him who hates to take pills, thinking that the pills are the embodiment of the disease he has. A part of him argues that by not taking the pills he can deny the existence of his disease. But this is not really true because the pills are for the treatment of his disease.
