What if this Happened to you?

A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?" "Yes, I'm afraid so," the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition. This prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'." **This is only a Joke, but sometimes, aren't we all like this?***

Yes, I can understand why someone could be confused by such things. It is a bit like getting certain prescriptions, i.e. sleeping tablets and reading the label which says something like "this medication may make you drowsy. If this happens, do not operate machinery or drive a vehicle. If these symptoms persist see your Doctor". Okay, but he was the one who gave them to me in the first place. It is just like when they first started to use child proof caps/lids on medications here in Australia ... many elderly people got into all sorts of trouble as they couldn't open their medication. But give the bottle to any child ... and they opened the medication without any problems. Thank you for sharing this one with us.
