Ciro feels bad, has strong pains in his belly: “Oh, God, what is happening to me? I must take that drug… The pain does not go away… I cannot stand it… Send for an ambulance!”. We rush to the hospital… drips, sample, rays, visits: "What are they doing to me? What do I have?”. Doctors talk to each other and speak with the nurse… Nobody says anything to me, nobody explains to me: “Is it serious? Will I get over? What do I have?”. I am terrified, I will not make it… Finally, after two hours, which seemed to be endless, a doctor explains to me, informs me about therapy, treatment and recovery… It seems to me I already feel a bit better…
