in case of emergency no but a lot of doctors worldwide for transplant receipiants are denying the transplant because a lot of patients are still doing the old habit which caused them to need a transplant in the first place. same thing with knee and hip replacements, are lot are not listening to the doctors and loosing the weight so that the replacments will work properly. also patients who do excessive plastic surgery, there should be a point where enough is enough, UNLESS it was the result of an accident or birth defect
Each circumstance is so different and unless it is life threatening, work with the patient one on one.
Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much
