I can't remember the last time I've taken an antibiotic. I hate pills. I seldom get sick....knock on wood. My doctor knows that if she sees me, I am grouchy about being there, even for a regular check-up. I have accepted that one should get "regular maintenance", like your car, for best results. I do have regular meds that I am prescribed, and I am compliant. On a rare occasion, I'm just not in the mood to take one or two of them, so I won't....then I have a little talk with myself and get back on track the next day. Luckily, I do not have the curse of diabetes. I just might not make it.
