Well, Wy. Guess I had better take an anti pissed off pill and go to bed.

Incidentally, I don't take nuttin'. Does that make me a part of the club?
Thanks, my friend. I have always admired Chief Joseph and his poignant speech. "I will fight no more forever."

goodnight.

hamburger and I are all about good antihistamines. and still <achooooo> rang around the office today. everyone was sneezing. well, not everyone. but enough that there were sneezes to share with those who weren't.

antibiotics are my 'only if the alternative is the hospital or death' med. I avoid 'em as long as I can. Once every decade or so, I really need them, so fold and get 'em (thanks to littlek for the latest push)

Letty,

Did I miss something? I am not against all antibiotics, just their over-use. Ok? To take or not to take either way is fine. Doing without antibiotics is better for you immune system, it does not make you a better person.

ehBeth,

Me too about once a decade and only if facing the morgue or a hospital full of sick people.

I wish I had a magic wand to disappear all allergies. Billie had been allergic to pork for over thirty years. A couple of weeks ago I performed a Healing Ceremony with her. The pork allergy is history.

I prefer my oysters a la rockefeller, otherwise all the rest of those items have been happy residents in my fridge for years . I guess I should be worried?


ehBeth,

If you've had the same food in your 'fridge for years, I'd be afraid...very afraid. Who knows what it has evolved into? Shocked It may have become something horrible, <Shuddering at the thought> like rice pablum!!

I had that pork allergy for over 35 years, but the Healing did wonders. It took four days. The first day, I drooled over thoughts of a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, the seconday it was roast pork. The third day, I thought of glazed ham with pineapple rings, held in place with whole cloves. The fourth day was crispy bacon and eggs. Once the Four Days were done, we had roast pork for dinner. It was absolutely delicious!!

i've had a couple of g.i. check-ups (separated by 25 years, thank god), i'll spare you the details. no problems were found. so i asked the good doctor would i should do about all the "good foods" that don't agree with me, such as : oranges, onions - unless vidalia onions, YUMMY ! - , turnips ... "well," he said "if they don't agree with you, your body is trying to tell you something "DON'T EAT THEM' ". advice taken ! hbg

Wow! How did such a harmless thread turn into:

Na na na na na na. I take antibiotics and you don't.

Or the inverse thereof:

I don't take those willful pills.

Seems as though no one can say one damn thing that doesn't turn in to some Big me Little you.


Sorry Letty, I think you are off-base here. I believe this debate is actually potent, and you really should be proud of yourself that you spawned it from a simple article. Nobody is trying to win here, or put you down, but the discussion is lively, and raises important issues. I say, good on ya.

I know, Cav. It was just one of those days, I guess.

hamburger, the last GI series that I had was many, many years ago. My stomach was in such a knot that the gastroenterologist guy looked at me with concern. I have never known what caused all that tension.

ehBeth - I am NOT suggesting you to do anything because I am not professional on that area. I will only tell you my situation: I have/had pretty bad pollen allergy. Took a lot of medication for it, but it never was any better actually (to be honest - during war we had some "Chlor Trimeton" or something like that pills from american donation and this spring I was slightly better. But, generally, nothing helped. I even had to use asthma inhalator during spring.

Then I stopped using ANY pills. For couple of years now. I simply decided that I don't want to poison myself anymore with something that doesn't really help.
I still have allergy. I sneeze. Sometimes my eyes are itchy. But I don't have any breathing problems at all. And I can live with sneezing. To be perfectly honest, my allergy is much better without any medication then it was with them. People are different and I am not saying that it has to be same in your case, but who knows...
