I understand hope and optimism but in this case, common sense is totally blurred, obscured. People stop their regular treatment as well...



I guess hope dies last! (when every other possibility has been exhausted...)

Not even sure of how I feel about it. Mixed feelings really: on the one hand anger at those naive people who go through all of that unthinkable difficulties and financial hardship to see the charlatan... on the other hand sympathy as those people see this little glimpse of light through the "healer" for their chance of recovery from whatever disease or fate that they are trying to escape.

I try to put myself in their shoes and sometimes it feels like I might have done the same thing (regardless the modern medicine's warning) because hope would be the last thing that kept me going...
