my immune system must have been sleeping, for i woke up fighting strep throat and sinus infections simultaneously,  both in hardcore aggressive mode. researched my prescribed  antibiotic and now i’m feeling better at last, at least psychologically. here is what it is capable of fighting:

– strep throat

– sinusitis

– typhoid

– cholera

– lyme disease

– malaria

-and an festive variety of std’s

wow, who knew?  i am now armed and ready to take on pretty much any disaster )
