Last weekend BlogSister #2 shocked me...really shocked me. No, she didn't show up pregnant or on drugs or announcing an impending divorce. She admitted to mis-using anti-biotics.
"Admitted" isn't even the right word because, in fact, she seemed to indicate no awareness that what she had done was wrong, wrong, wrong. What had she done? Well, she wasn't feeling well for a couple of weeks, suffering form a chest cold, so she was "finishing up" a bottle of anti-biotics from the last time she was sick, and hoping to feel better.
So clearly stupid anti-biotic trick #1 was not finishing her bottle whenever the last time she was prescribed the meds was. Stupid anti-biotic trick #2 was taking a random, unprescribed number of anti-biotics this time around.
BlogSister #2 is smart. Highly educated. Cares about health and fitness. But contributing to the ultimate extinction of the humanr ace at the hands of some super-virus!!! OK, maybe I'me xaggerating...a little...but I thought everyone knew you weren't supposed to do this kind of this with anti-biotics.
Just goes to show you.
