French people suffer from strange illnesses that don’t exist in other countries! Visitors chuckled over posters in the Pharmacy window that advertised a cure for ‘heavy legs’. Even though the liver never gives pain, people can suffer from ‘tired livers’. I blame a daily T.V. programme that is on every afternoon – in fact two that are back to back and last for 1½ hours. Doctors must know the contents of the broadcast when patients arrive thinking that they are suffering from the illness of the day. An early evening comedy programme, pokes fun at the pensioners who know the complicated names of tablets off by heart, and in one scene the couple were impressed when their friend got prescribed a pill with a 13-letter-long name!
