Noooooo! Not Staph!

If you're in the mood for a terrifying tale of Microorganisms That Are Not to Be Messed With, check out Dr. Isis' post, MSSA Might Not Be MRSA, But It Still Really Sucks.

It will make you shudder, and be grateful for both narcotics, and antibiotics.

I remember the dreaded 'staph infection,' which I never actually got (happily!), being the bogey-sickness of my childhood. There was a period, when I guess it was going around in the neighborhood or something, that my mom was concerned about any sort of lingering scratch.

I have to say, it's a pretty good candidate for the bogey-sickness of my adulthood as well.
