I've had it twice this year...if I have to go through that shit again I'll go mad...it doesn't help with this crazy ass weather we have here. a few days ago it was 79 the next day it was 23 and snowing like hell....fucking TN....
this is all caused by one of the forms of pussification that has been running rampant over societies in the past several years
everyone is trying to make their environment as sterile as possible... and is in turn churning out super bugs like its their fucking job
antibacterial / antimicrobial / blah blah blah... kills 99.9% of germs etc...
well heres the thing... after it kills off all of the weakest germs it leaves only the strongest .1%
and then those are left to breed... creating a stronger more resistant strain of whatever bug
then you kill off 99.9% of them and the process begins again, over and over, creating stronger and stronger and more and more resistant strains
until the cleansers we have dont kill the germs any more
also living in these sterile environments doesnt expose your body and your immune system to enough germs to build up any type of resistance to them... so every time you do catch something your sorry ass immune system cant fight it because its too damn weak and atrified... leaving you to get your ass kicked by even weak ass infections
same thing with improper medication prescriptions and use... oh i have a cold... no one checks if it is due to a viral or bacterial infection... they just prescribe antibiotics...
antibiotics dont work on viral infections... they only work on bacterial infections... this constant over use and improper use of antibiotics only makes you resistant to the medication... then there is the misuse issue of people not completing their prescriptions... they take the meds until they feel better then dont take the last several days of meds... this is similar to the issue with the cleaners... you dont kill off all of the bugs, you only kill off enough of the weak bugs for you to feel better... but the strongest bugs are left behind to create stronger and stronger bugs, that are resistant to the medication
this is why you hear about all of these resistant strains of viruses and bacteria... they dont just happen... we are creating them
but back on topic... the Flu is a VIRUS... antibiotics do not effect VIRUSES... so if your doctor tries to prescribe you antibiotics for the flu, KICK THEM IN THE JUNK, and tell them they suck as a doctor... this is why the "flu shot" exists... it exposes you to a weaker form of the virus in hopes that your immune system will whoop its ass and in the process build up a resistance to it... however the flu shot only exposes you to one (or very few) strain(s) of the flu... there are a shit ton of different strains out there... this is why a lot of people will still get the flu even after they receive the flu shot... or will get the flu several times over the course of the flu season
now im sure someone here is going to speak up with their story of being prescribed antibiotics for a viral infection and had the antibiotics work and make them better... this is caused by one of 3 reasons:
1- you actually had a bacterial infection and were misdiagnosed or misinformed
2- placebo effect... ie: it was all in your head... you could have been given anti menopause pills and you would have felt better
3- you felt better because your immune system did its job and fought off the infection like it would have on its own without the antibiotics
god damnit i dont even know where the fuck i was headed with this rant any more... so ill end it with FUCK YOU!!!!
me and my GF have been getting sick pretty often lately.. i picked up some Aleve-D the other day.. good stuff there..
I am feeling sick the past few days, i usually pop a few IB Profen before i go to bed and feel decent when i wake up
we should shut off our borders, take over their land, and rob them of their oil....
isn't this our solution for everything?
we should stop creating super bugs through our ridiculous want for sterile environments
we should go back to letting kids be kids and let them get exposed to germs so that their immune systems will actually develop
we should stop prescribing medications incorrectly
we should stop taking medications incorrectly
actually... no... we should stay on the same path we are currently on... we need a good pandemic to quickly kill off a large percent of the world population
that would drastically reduce our resource consumption
Guess what I have... right now
fuck ye. rep for you.
I dont pop pills like tick tacks and never go to the doctor for bullshit prescriptions against illnesses that your body can deal with on its own.

Yeah man, I'm done with life. Done with it.
Especially after the argument with my girlfriend I've been having. I'm through. Hermit time.
see my post in the gas thread about moving to thailand. if you like the sun, booze, and rice, you are welcome to move with me.
this is the kind of shit crappy parody movies are made of
My father-in-law is opening a Japanese restaurant in Thailand, he's 73, and health starting to fail....so I'll prolly inherent it... I'll sell it to you for some decent change, and I'll turn around and buy a huge boat in Phuket, and open a diving tour for Japanese tourist's.
The dive boat was my original goal back in 1996, once me and the wife spent a month in Phuket for our honeymoon. I payed a boat tour guide over $100 a day to dive at shark point, and the boat could hold 20+ divers= $2000 a day for getting wet.
But I couldn't get a working visa in Thailand because I didn't have a degree....still don't have a degree...but I'll get one soon.
