Lesson 17: Medicine and Health

        I have not been feeling well over the last few days; that may be due to the change of weather.  I have a headache, cough; and I am also weak.  Today I went to see the doctor because I did not want to use medicine without consulting the doctor. 

        When I arrived there, the doctor asked me about my illness.  Then he examined my health.  He asked me to open my mouth so that he could look at my throat.  After that he asked me to take a deep breath and then exhale slowly.  He told me that my lung was infected.  This is because I had a severe cold.

        After the examination, the doctor told me to buy antibiotic pills for ten days.   He told me that I had to take the medicine regularly.  Furthermore, he advised me to take enough rest and stop doing exercise for a while.
