Since When!>?!

I woke up today having a sore throat - which I think happened from the strong Air Condition we have at work.. and I just HATE to take any medicines! I HATE IT .. I HATE IT.. I HATE to swallow pills.. I believe every medicine has BAD side effects - (which are even worse than tolerating all the pains), and nothing would change that image.. not even if all the doctors in the world say that it's untrue.. !

I have this anitibiotic that should be taken before the operation. And I just don't take it! Sooner or later the doctor would know and I just don't want to think of what his reaction would be. Let's leave it as a SURPRISE! Since my dad is a doctor too (E.N.T) specialist. - Ears, Nose and Throat-, he was trying to make me take this antibiotic for a long time, that he got to the point where he's just so tired now of my stubborness and doesn't care anymore about the whole thing.
So today morning while my dad was half asleep, I said 'Dad, i have a sore throat, can you please do something about it', and he looked at me and said 'oh that's just great, this will give you every reason to start with the antibiotic, you should've taken long time ago'. So I said .. 'But since when do they give antibiotics for a sore throat!!!!!?' , he smiled and said 'ummm, I forgot that you studied medicine! Do you have any other precious medical information that I can learn from you?!'.. haha!!

I have no clue why im a so ANTI- medicine. Maybe because I was raised in a home where we have them everywhere, anytime and everytime... I truely believe that natural herb treatment is healthier, and better.. at least the side effects wouldn't be too harmful! Nothing is worse than what a strong medicine can cause when taken on an empty stomach.. aaaaaaaaaaaaaah! just the thought of it makes me insist on sticking to my big and loud NONO to medicines.

    Walahi ya Dima I’m totally the opposite, I don’t give myself the chance to feel any kind of pain, I just HATE dealing with it, I take a pain killer immediately, meds are there for a reason ya benti :) … I’m a meds person, something hurts, I have the right solution for it.. medications :D … man you have to see my drawers, I have all kinds of pain killers in it … I know you hate me right now, but I really can’t take any kind of pain

    zakarteeni bi my best friend, she is soooooooo stubborn too!!
    ya3ni if she’s dying she won’t take any medicine (but on the other hand betbalbe3 vitamins and minerals tablest bil habal! and i don't think one have to exaggerate on this too!)

    I think this gets to a point where I honestly find it 3ind bala ta3meh! cause sometimes you really have no choice but to take the medicine.

    I’m not a big fan of medicines and antibiotics myself, I prefer the natural remedy too, but sometimes you have to take them, specially when having a flu or a fever, cause ignoring it will increase the infection and it might affect the lungs! (happened to my cousin actually! he ignored the medicines when he got a cold, and it increased till it reached his chest and affected his lung!! he got a hole in his lung and had to go through an operation!!)

    plus before an operation you really have to take them, don’t think it’s shataaraa not to!!
    When I had to remove my wisdom tooth, I took an antibiotic 24 hours in advance to avoid any infection and tanfee’7 in my face..

    7aseit 7ali talking like mamas here!!
    bas jad ben2eher lamma shouf 7ada m3aned 3a shee ma 2elo ta3meh mitel heik! and it migh really cause a big damage if ignored!

    salamtek...and '7aleeki shatoora and listen to ur dad :)

    manal yusuf.. :D

    Maioush.. pain killers lose all effect when taken regulary! panadol doesn't have the slighest effect on me! HAHA

    You remind me of our house, we have them all everywhere, and now i can even give someone a medicine just by knowing whats his problem. They call me 'doctoret il 3aileh'.. if dad is not there im in charge ;) But I just hate to swallow those pills.. maybe it's nafsiian! I dunno..

    Oriental Arabesque.. I don't take both! not even vitamins and minerals.. it's the same, you still have to swallow something :S

    I hate the effect they do on the stomach.. so I'd rather not take them than starting to deal with a stomach ache! :(
    I took the antibiotic two weeks ago, I just can't understand the point of taking it this week too.. sometimes you'd be so sick of medicines that another pill would just make you vomit. This is what Im talking about ...

    I live with headaches for days sometimes..
    But finally I surrender and I take a Panadol..

    I hate it too.. :D

    Ouch! I know that feeling..

    Try a cup of lemon tea preferably herbal tea
    1-2 tbsp lemon juice concentrate
    1 tbsp honey

    it won’t cure a sore throat per se, but it will keep your throat pretty smooth the whole time...

    Drama Div@.. thank you dear! Im sure this would help.. you know the air conditions cause all kind of body aches and now my throat too :S I hate it.

    heh both my parents are doctors! growing up when I was sick they'd give me medicine and send me off to school, I rarely missed a day unless I was REALLY sick. Of course I made up for the days I didn't miss by skipping school alot later on hehe. I hate taking medicine unless I'm backed into a corner and I hate visiting doctors. I think antibiotics would be effective if you are having sore throats very often but what would I know, I was terrible at biology in school :)

    SS ... OHHHH! Now i found someone who knows exactly what I mean ;) I rarely missed a day too, I remember after doing a car accident and spending two or three days at hospital one saturday, my dad made me do the university finals next saturday :D..
    Doctors always see everything as normal.. ;) plus, they don't spoil! :S
    And with both parents -doctors.. WOW I can imagine the scenario! haha
    I hate to visit a doctor.. I always have dad telling us what to do or what to take.. so it feels odd to see someone else!

     
  • At May 26, 2007 , Blogger SS said...

    yeah exactly! I mean they just don't see those things as a big deal, probably cuz they see so many "small" problems everyday it becomes nothing to them.

    It took me 5 years on my own before I ended up seeing another doctor and by then it was a real emergency. And when you tell them what another doctor said, they start arguing or disagreeing with the prescriptions, it can be quite funny!

    But yeah I still have problems seeing other doctors, it's like you're cheating on them or something lol

    SS.. lol yeah! my dad would be offended if I don't take his opinion first.. :$ and as you said, it happened with my teeth too, i just kept postponing the whole thing till I ended up with an infected nerve and a broken needle that will stay there forever :S :$

     
  • At May 26, 2007 , Blogger SS said...

    What?! I thought he was going to pull that needle out? or do you mean the nerve is permanent?

    lol maybe one day i'll sue my parents for being doctors

     
  • At May 27, 2007 , Blogger and life goes on... said...

    SS.. it got broken and he couldn't pull it out! so it'll just stay there ... umm don't ask me how or why! :( it just happened.. now i hope I wont be feeling it.. i guess not! since it's almost a month now and i feel nothing :D

     
  • At May 27, 2007 , Blogger SS said...

    it's not about the feeling though cuz if it hurt then he would HAVE to remove it, but I would gather that leaving such an object would at one point cause infection? or even rust or corrode or something :S i guess this is one more reason why I don't visit the dentist lol

     
  • At May 27, 2007 , Blogger SS said...

    btw a bit of advice about dental stuff. I dunno the cost of dental work in Jordan but in Australia it will probably be ALOT more so if you are postponing any inevitable tooth issues, you should get them sorted before you leave.
