Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Medicine, Yuck

MedicineWhy does medicine have to taste so bad? My antibiotics supplement finished. I still needed to go a few days more (because initially I was taking two pills when I should have just taken one!) I ran out pretty quick. I am currently on the kids antibiotic mix! That stuff tastes so good! Who decided that medicine should just taste bad? Why does it have to be torture? :/ AND why do pills have to be so huge that you’d nearly choke on them! I hate pills..

    they say the older u get, the less sensitive ur taste buds are, so maybe they think ur old enough to endure the taste OR ur too old to taste in the first place :p

    Shale,
    I voted yes to your acupuncture poll. I’ll take that on! hehe. I didn’t know they had an effect on the placebo effect!? Whats that about..

  11. Shale |

    A placebo is a treatment that does not do anything. The placebo effect refers to the fact that if you think a treatment will make you better, you will often get better, even though the treatment is irrelevant. It tastes bad to make you think it is full of powerful magical medicine.

    ooh, i just remembered !! tathkir the old panadol kids tablet ? ili chewable.. they were pink and so tasty !! it used to come in those blue transparent containers..

  13. Marzouq |

    Yes they are evil, but next time take the pill and chew it with your mouth open in front of them and act like it tastes like honey!
