Would you like pills with that? ~ the little lioness

Would you like pills with that?

Back from a very quick dr’s visit. I was pleasantly surprised that I got in so easily – with a doctor new to the surgery so isn’t booked up yet.

Seems to be a generic viral infection getting to my throat and mucous-producing bits. Enough to knock me about long enough to be given til Friday off work on a medical certificate.

One thing I hate though it when I’m asked whether I would like antibiotics or not. Just tell me if you think I need them, if I need them I’ll take them if I don’t I won’t. Don’t ask me because you assume I want pills because it’s a great placebo.

Pink Pills

We had that exchange, during which he confirmed that no, he didn’t think I needed them, but still offered to write a script for antibiotics in case I got worse, to which I replied that if I was worse by Thursday, I’d be coming back and could get given something then.

So, rest, watching the cricket, zooper doopers and mangoes til Friday.

    Yes, I always get confused when I’m presented that option…they do realise this type of thing contributes to the evolution of super-bugs?

    This past Winter when hubby got sick quite a bit he was always offered SB even when eh didn’t need them. I think they look at them like dummies!
