Here it is Strawberry Letter.

Speaker 1 (00:26):
Thank you. Nephew's subject pre existing conditions. Dear Stephen Shirley.
I'm a fifty eight year old single woman. I have
been divorced for four years and my two children are grown.
The man that I've been dating hasn't been honest with me,
so I need your advice. We met on a blind

(00:46):
date and it was one of the worst dates I've
ever been on. The guy was not feeling well and
he kept going to the bathroom. I told him that
I could not see myself going on any more dates
with him, and after a few days he started begging
me for a second date. I fell for it and
went to his house for dinner. I noticed that he
had a few prescriptions in the cabinet, so I asked

(01:08):
about the medicine. He said he takes a prescription and
acid and migraine medicine. I felt better knowing that it
was nothing major. I've been getting to know him for
the past three months, and I told him just about
everything about me. Come to find out, he has not
told me any important information about himself. I found out
the hard way after he passed out while we were

(01:32):
on a date and I had to take him to
the er. After two hours in the er, I was
told that based on his history, he had to be
admitted to the hospital. Again. I asked again, and she
said he's been there three times so far this year.
The nurse said that was all she could tell me
since he was still asleep. I tiptoed on out of

(01:54):
there when the nurse left because he is not my man,
and I didn't know he had pre existing conditions. What
if he is seriously ill, should I stop talking to
him before I end up his caretaker or should I
check on him and make sure he's going to be okay. Well,
he definitely needs a caretaker, for sure, because something is

(02:15):
most definitely wrong with him, But his health is not
your responsibility. It is his You just met this man
three years ago. You had no idea, but then he
begged you and gave you a little information, and you
went out with him a second time to his house,
and that's when you found out that whatever he has
is way more serious than what he said. He definitely

(02:35):
left out a lot of information. You're asking the right questions,
like what if he is seriously ill and it sounds
like he is. He should have told you the truth
and what you were up against. And also, please know
that you don't owe this man anything, so you don't
have to start feeling guilty about what he has going on.
But here's the other thing. You can check on him. Yes,

(02:57):
there's nothing wrong with that. Text him. You can call
him if you don't want to date him, that's okay too.
But I mean, you can check on him and see
how he is. It's nothing wrong with that.

Speaker 3 (03:09):
Steve, Well, lady, listen to me. This ain't what you want.

You got to open these damn closets and get in
that medicine cabinet and look under that bed. That's where
all that is. You ain't even got to wear it.
Now here you go. I noticed he had a few
prescriptions in the cabinet. Good job. So I asked about
the medicine. He said, he takes prescription an tacit and

(05:21):
