    When Kaiser goes to prescribe antibiotics to anyone in my household, I ask if it's necessary?  They always look at me like I'm the crazy one.

    And then you have the people who whine about taking them and they aren't working and going back to the doctor and I have to say, you know, it's probably a virus and that's why antibiotics won't do a damn thing for you.

    It's out of control really and frightening how many people are still uneducated about this.  And I work with engineers.

      Antibiotics aren't risk-free to the person taking them; I won the side effect lottery and was hospitalized longer than my friend was hospitalized for her heart attack.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
