The last week has been a hard one, my partner and I are still sick, but we’ve seen the doctor and have been prescribed antibiotics and painkillers so we’ll get there eventually. In light of that I thought I’d share a quote about being sick. Perhaps that’s a little mopey but I saw it and couldn’t help but think how true it is.
Nature performs the cure, the physician takes the fee. – Benjamin Franklin
We’ve been prescribed a form of penicillin which is a naturally occurring antibiotic, the first one discovered actually, by Alexander Fleming and further developed by Howard Florey and his team of scientists. But of course nowadays rather than finding it naturally and trying to self-treat, we go and pay the doctor to make us better!
I hope you all have a great week!
