    Steroid induced fitness is sham ! Why did a doctor go for it ? Athletes indulge in it occasionally for name and fame, but when caught they lose everything ! I read that an ophthalmologist ended her life as she could not fight her tuberculosis . But WHY? is it stigma ? or she thought she is beyond cure ? Very sad !
