John Confronts Aventer About Not Taking Her Thyroid Medicine

CC | tv-pg
The Grays are always quick to help others in their community, but sometimes they let their own health problems take a back seat. When Bonnie, Aventer's mother, voices her concern that Aventer has stopped taking her thyroid medication, John gets upset that he didn't know, and confronts his wife, who is always urging him to get his diabetes under control.

"Double standard much?" he says. "My wife is always telling me, 'I need you to take care of yourself so you can live, and blah, blah, blah.' Well, guess what? I need you to take care of yourself so that you can live."

Here, John and Aventer are forced to face the fact that they've been neglecting to discuss their health issues.
