Well isn't that fun? This is why we finish our treatment as per doctor's orders, people. Seriously.

Yep yep. Unless instructed by a doctor one shouldn't stop their medications early. In the case of antibiotics and the like anyways. Anti-Psychotics are different.

So glad we finally got my monthly infections under control.

And to make matters worse, TB is highly contagious. Definitely not a good combination.

India was a disaster waiting to happen. They have potent antibiotics available OTC, so people are going to use them improperly.

Seriously? God damn it, India. This is why we can't have nice things.

Lak OMGZ, but that's totally just micro-evolution.

I often make light of serious subjects, but this news  strikes me as very depressing.
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

Wasn't TB the reason why we have so many broken down asylums all over the place?

I think I'll remind people about this post that Vene made in the old blog. Just to remind you that this may hit closer to home.

Oh fantastic... >_< Just what we need.  A superbug.

I feel sorry for all the people in India who are infected with this.  And all the people who will be infected.

I imagine it's possible that this will be transferred to America.  Or, if not that, then we'll end up creating our own superbug for some other disease.

Pah... I'm starting to wonder if humanity will wipe itself out with a superbug before we ever feel the effects of global warming.
