I hate meds

Mr now-everyday-is-a-working-day recommended putting tamarind paste at the back of my throat to help with the itch and sore. I almost gagged and ended up swallowing the whole thing. Yuckk. Will stick to drinking tamarind juice, thanks very much.

I’ve never been a fan of medicine. Even when it’s just panadol. So when I get my once-a-year cold, I’ll usually stock up on tea (lots of it), honey and vitamin c. And sleep of course.

We don’t have many pharma-based ads on local tv, apart from panadol and medicated tooth paste. In Japan, I remember ads ranging from speedy cure for headaches to cold medicine, from something for your stomach when you’ve eaten too much (like Eno, usually aired during year-end/new year time) to allergy meds.

It’s weird that I don’t like taking medicine but I’m fine with needles and stuff. As in, giving blood.

    People generally think that because of my profession, I’m good with taking drugs. It’s truly the opposite really.. my compliance to medication is so shameful that my supposedly once-daily multivitamin gone expired only half-taken.

    My solution to fever and cold? sleep
    My solution to that-time-of-the-month-hassle? sleep

    p/s I just received a compliance bashings a couple of days ago from my Dr for not complying to my sinusitis treatment.. Great..
