I don't know if it's the same with your family relatives, but when it comes to mine this is how it is. I'll use my grandmother for example, she was feeling really sick, and she could barely take care of herself, but she didn't want to go see a doctor, everytime would of her sons or daugther ask them to go see a doctor she declined. But after a period of time when her kids saw she was really ill, they forced her to go. Now here's the question, if you start feeling really ill, would you go to the doctors right away to get yourself checked? Or you'll wait a few weeks to see if it's going to go away. I'm also not talking about the Flu or a cold, it's something different that you never felt before.
