Newspaper columnist, Clay Muganda reflects on ageing and the lessons he picked up from his father.
Doctors. They are the best. Or so we think. Many people believe that medical staff or doctors can keep secrets. Patients easily share stuff with them that they would never reveal to their spouses, sexual partners or children.
Opening up to a doctor is so easy. We never think much about the things we tell doctors about ourselves, and how they might be used against us.
But at some age, you become conscious about what you tell your doctor and wonder whether these young men and women can keep secrets.
