HELP - Friend thinks he will die of stomach infection?
Hi, I have a friend of sorts who already suffers from a delusional mental illness, and we have been working to get him help. Anyway...
He recently showed symptoms of GERD, and went to the doctor. He was vomiting as well. Apparently his doctor gave him an antibiotic and after a few days he felt better.
Today he came to me and said that his infection has spread to his intestines, and his doctor told him that if he doesn't get help and does not take his medication, the infection will spread to his blood and he will die.
He is 18 years old, and we always find it hard to believe him with certain things because he is always out for pity over really ridiculous stuff. He also is in denial about being disturbed, but several experts know he is.
Please help and tell me if this is a credible story and if he could possibly die or not.
