Writing Exercise #6

I have taken antibiotics before when I had strep throat to speed up the recovery process but I know that it could also go away on its own without strep throat. I think in the future, whenever I have the choice to take antibiotics or not, I would prefer not to take it if it is not super serious or a life or death situation. I would want my immune system to work to protect my body against pathogens to the best of its ability so it would be stronger, and I think that relying on medication all the time can make your body weaker overall as it will start to depend on outside interventions for healing instead of itself. Also I think that overuse of antibiotics can be dangerous if the bacteria develop immunity against it, that would make it even more difficult to deal with, and antibiotics may also affect healthy bacteria inside your body that actually help you as well.
