But my enemies say nothing but evil about me. "How soon will he die and be forgotten?" they ask.
They visit me as if they are my friends, but all the while they gather gossip, and when they leave, they spread it everywhere.
All who hate me whisper about me, imagining the worst for me.
"Whatever he has, it is fatal," they say. "He will never get out of that bed!"
