He fell sick and had a cold and high fever. But there was something strange about his illness.
He has always been skinny but suddenly he lost a lot of weight.
Since the last few months, he had been losing weight rapidly until he reached a point where he was stick thin. And he wasn't sick those times.
The weight reduction was so obvious so that he had a really gaunt appearance.
He's a person of color, has light olive tinned skinshade but when he was sick, his face had turned white and he was pale. He was doing his professional work during the period he was sick so it definitely wasn't a severe illness like typhoid or malaria. It was more if the high fever and such yet the look he had was scary.
He also has strange red cuts and marks on his wrists sometimes.
I hate to say it but he has had drug allegations in the past and when he was asker about it, he just said he's upset on hearing how he's being accused of being a drug addict but didn't deny that he doesn't do them
He's alcoholic. Drinks a lot. And was caught smoking weed.
Lately, he has been resting at home and eating well so he has gained weight and looks healthier but there's something not right about him.
What could be the reason? Do you think he does drugs and his substance abuse is leading to health issues?
by the way he's 23.
