Count Your Blessings 14: Medicine

Medicine

I think it would be nice if everyone, including myself, lived healthy enough lives so that no one would ever need the use of medicine, but that’s not reality. I’m not the type of person who likes to take medication without a really good reason. It seems to me that too often, people over medicate themselves because it’s easier than taking care of themselves. However, when I think back to times in history when common illnesses could wipe out whole villages simply because there was no medicine available, it makes me question my opinion of medication.

I’m blessed to live in an age when almost everything at least has treatment options. No one is going to die alone in a corner waiting for the effects of some illness to overtake their body. In this day and age, we have a fighting chance. Now the trick is giving everyone on the planet that chance, but that’s a topic for another day.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
