Andrea's grandmother was just taken to a hospital today, she has a bad infection due to her not finishing her antibiotics the way they were prescribed. She stopped taking them after she started feeling better.

I've noticed this kind of behaviour from other people as well, all of them were older (60+). Andrea's grandfather only takes 1/4 of his blood pressure medicine. My father, after a major surgery, didn't want to use the morphine that the doctor had him hooked up to because he thought he would get addicted to it.

What is it with that generation, do they think they are going to get addicted to the drugs that the doctors prescribe to them?

I hope and pray for the best out come for my wife's grandmother.
