Confession Time – When It’s Time To Call The Doctor

Well, after the impressive sunny weather during the Pope’s visit to Sydney, things sure “turned” into cold, wet and windy.

Somewhere, somehow, I developed a bacterial respiratory tract infection.  Utter misery – with an extremely sore throat, chest congestion, coughing, headaches, fever – the whole deal.  Unable to sleep properly for the past week, (I feel like I can’t breathe when I lie down), I have given a lot of thought to the medical profession.  They certainly have their place. I was very grateful to be able to have tests to figure out what was ailing me, and even more grateful to be able to obtain prescription medication to fight the infection.

It’s taken a whole week, and I’m gradually feeling better.  So the realization is that I’m not anti medicine, more that I’m pro nutrition.  There are obviously times when the medical profession provides a knowledgeable and valued response to a critical need.
