WHY ARE THERE SOME DISEASES WE CAN NOT ELIMINATE?
Enterococcus
Malaria
Measles
Staph
Superbug
Hello Everyone! Dr. Filligan here to tell you a story that changed my life.
So this is how it all went down. I was in the middle of checking Instagram, when I received a call from a blocked number.
I was totes surprised when I answered and Enterococcus said hello.
He said he was on a mission to find why infants and elders hated him.
I didn't quite know what to say. So I told him it was probably because he attacks infants and elders.
He was shocked by the news and told me maybe
another reason was because they can NOT get rid of him.
And he mentioned he practically became a "germ in a bubble" and resistant when penicillin, vancomycin, and linezolid came near him.
I then told him there is no way for him to be eliminated right now. So enterococcus said that maybe the day will come and hung up.
I felt kind of odd after my awkward talk with enterococcus, but things just got weirder.
I was awoken from my beauty rest at 2 a.m. when my front door was getting knocked on.
I threw on my slippers and answered to a box on my door step.
In that box, was a letter from...
The letter read...
Dear Dr. Filligan,
so people are saying that they are trying to eliminate me. I guess I'm shrinking, but not yet gone. And apparently my parasites multiply in the liver and I invade red blood cells. Guess what, after I invade them, I rupture them. I don't see the big deal in that. Get this, I'm found in warm regions by the equator. So, I'm writing to you to ask how and why I'm not gone yet.
-Malaria
I replied by telling him he is widespread and quickly multiplies in the body.
Malaria quickly wrote back by thanking me for my help and recommended me to Measles since I'm the bomb.com.
As predicted, Measles stopped by my office for a chat.
Measles was a odd girl with a devilish smile.
She said in the lowest possible voice that some MMR vaccine was made and led to a 99% reduction in the USA.
I casually answered by saying yes, of course.
And BAM just like that, she screamed THEN WHY AM I STILL HERE AND NOT ELIMINATED?!?
I, Dr. Filligan, was freaked out by this girl. So, I tried to explain that she has her virus multiply in the back of the throat and lungs. After she does that, I told her that she spreads it through out the body.
Her mood changed to happy and she simply said thanks before she was gone.
As I thought thing couldn't get any weirder, I received a Snapchat from Staph.
The Snapchat told me to call him ASAP.
I immediately gave him a call and to my surprise, he started talking super fast.
I will tell you word for word what he said, "OK, OK, OK, so me, Staph, has this Superbug that is known as a flesh eating bacteria. Oh, wait a second, have I had lunch yet? Sorry, getting off topic. So, 30%of the population gets me in their nose or on their skin surface."
All I could manage to say was, WOW! But, I did say that he was correct and if he get's under a persons skin barriers, he can cause a variety of different infections.
Staph told me that he is becoming resistant to Methicillin after it used to work on the little guy. He said that he is not going away anytime soon, then told me to talk to Superbug for him.
I was looking forward to talking to Superbug and I was literally dying to hear his story.
I have heard some stories about Superbug, but by far, the most popular one is that he can not be eradicated and in 10 seconds, I will find out why.
I simply went up to Superbug and said howdy. I really wanted to know one question, and that was, why are you so powerful?
He replied by saying and I quote, "I have some tricks up my sleeve, so sit and listen."
He then went on to say that he describes a strain of bacteria in which is resistant to most antibiotics.
I was so interested and just said WOW, tell me more!!
He then continued on to say that his resistance spreads to other bacteria making them resistant, then he said, "I'm UNSTOPPABLE!"
Just like that, Super bug was gone.
All these interviews with these diseases really makes the name DR. FIlligan more official.
I then proceeded to tell him that he can be prevented by wearing long clothing,
using repellent,
and by sleeping with a mosquito net over the bed.
