I went to the Doctor this past Friday and they asked me if I wanted to get the flu shot.? I was hesitant because I had my mom visiting for the weekend and I really didn’t want to get the flu.? I have heard on several occasions of people coming down with a mild case of the flu from the shot.? After all, they are injecting little bit of the flu into you right?
The Doctor assured me that I would be fine and that the only thing that? might happen would be for my arm to get a little sore.
Friday I was fine.? But on Saturday I started feeling achy.? Sunday it got worse, and now Monday – I really have the flu!? What the heck?? Now my head is pounding and my whole body aches from head to toe.? I was so looking forward to today because my 3 & 4 yr olds are in preschool for a full day.?? I had planned on getting lots of work done today, but that probably won’t happen, because I am having a hard time just typing this post from my bed.
I am interested to know what your thoughts are about the flu shot.? Please leave me a comment and fill out the poll below.? You can pick more than one answer.
Thanks so much!? I am going to put my laptop back on my desk and lay down and get some rest.
