Is There Trauma From Taking Medication?
Good night, I want to ask if there is such a thing as taking the trauma of taking medicine? The problem is that every time my brother is sick and has to take medicine, he always cries loudly and always evades until he pretends to be “sleeping so as not to take medicine and other reasons”. My younger brother was always forced to take medicine when he was forced, now my sister is in grade 2 elementary school. Thanks.
