Medicinal Warning

I don't have a photo of myself looking unwell.  I think I was ill when this one was taken but it just looks as though I'm trying to focus on a far away object without my glasses.

 I'm out of action at the moment with some sort of infection - not proper flu, but nastier than what I'd normally class as a cold, it's spent several days making me feel headachy, tired, and just basically a bit rubbish, and now it's developed into a more traditional cold with lots of sneezing and runny nose.  My wife kindly bought me a selection of medicines to make me feel better.

Now, there's a truth lurking behind all of these medicines that you get for when you have a cold, and that is that the medicines don't really do that much.  The truth of the matter is that you are almost certain to recover from a cold by yourself, but the medicines just make you feel a bit better (and makes you think that the cold is going away - because the medicine is making you feel better!).

Anyway, one of the medicines was a pack of medicated lozenges that you suck with some kind of antiseptic compound in it.  They're very nice, but I was rather amused to read this warning on the box.

Warning: do not take if you are hypersensitive (allergic) to any of the ingredients.

Isn't that true of everything?


  1. What makes me laugh is the warning not to take this medication listing a good twenty side effects. Hope you feel better or at least think you do:)

  2. I really want the world to know about this great man who brought back happiness into my life again after my husband left me and the kids 3 years ago for another women online when i contacted Dr Believe he cast a love spell for me within 48 hours my ex husband start calling me and begging for forgiveness for everything that have happened between us. I was so happy to have my family back together with love again here is the email of Dr Believe via a man with the great powers you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348156148821
    God bless you
    I am very grateful for your help in my marriage.
