She was able to phone Karen and beg her to come to help her, but after seeing her struggle Karen called a doctor to see Dinah and her infection was diagnosed.

Refusing to go to the hospital for effective treatment, Dinah insisted that she could cope.

But when the doctor gave her the antibiotic prescription, Dinah slipped another prescription for painkillers into the pile and Karen went off to get them for her.

I hope Karen doesn't help Dina die. I couldn't bare Karen being upset and feeling guilty!

Begging Karen, an emotional Dinah told her: "Look at how she's been, look at what I'm putting her through.

"Will you help me? Put an end to this."
