Hi i extremely apologize if this is the wrong forum to put this in, but i have a friend lady who is being extremely stubborn to go see a doctor, she says she is having troubles hearing, a sore throat, and feels really cold, she has im not sure what its called but needs to take potassium every day, and apparently since her throat is bothering her so much that she cant swallow this potassium in 4 days going unto 5 days, is there anything i that a friend can help her, that wouldnt consist of me trying to drag her to a doctor??? please help me immediatly, i wouldnt want to see a friend dead over some potassium.

nah im new to the city, and i wouldnt want to embarass a new friend, as well as lose one. She says she has been on iv's before and if they had to put her on it again that they would have to put in a pickline put in? i never heard of something like that. Im trying to convince her to come over and use my roommates room as it has heat, and her roommates and house and no heat at all, and its winter time, -28 degree. I dont know what to do, without losing a friend.
