Doctors as patients

One of the nightmares for medical units across the world is to have a doctor as a patient. Everything is has to be extra-careful in the discussion, tests, planning and implementation. Each thing is checked and double-checked.

I know that I am a terrible patient. I do not quite remember completing a full course of antibiotics or doing the things recommended to me.
The problem is that for some strange reason (?Murphy's law), when we are extra-careful; things go extra wrong. Some people term it the "VIP syndrome".
