Dr Liew: “That’s right.”

Patient: “You told me to measure my blood pressure three times a day for a week.”

Dr Liew: “That’s right.”

Patient: “But I can’t. I have a problem.”

Dr Liew: “Use it often enough and you will overcome your phobia.”

Dr Liew: “If you see a ghost, you will be afraid because you are not used to it. But if you see ghosts all the time, you will get used to them and won’t be afraid anymore.”

Patient: “What the…” 🤦‍♂️
