Now, wouldn't it be a shame to contract these diseases when you are in a hermitage? No one would be able to help you but only yourself and what can you possibly do without any medical help? Not much right? Being in a parsonage or anywhere else besides a hermitage is better than being in a hermitage when you have any of these diseases because you'll at least have some people to help you versus none at all.
Obviously in this situation you wouldn't be having a simper on your face because these diseases could kill you in any moment of your life if contracted and you wouldn't be feeling so well either. You shouldn't be pompous because then other people won't like to help you as much in these situations. Bottom line is, just hope you don't contract any of these diseases.
