A healthcare provider knows how to recognize symptoms of a disease and knows what medications are used to treat the disease so it makes sense to self-treat when he or she becomes ill. This is especially true when the healthcare provider is depressed, anxious, or is in pain. The information used to diagnose personal illness is subjective and as the craving for the medication increases it interferes with the objective reasoning that the healthcare provider normally uses when assessing patients.
