They Gave the Wrong Flu Shot!


Yesterday afternoon I developed a scratchy throat and last night it turned more into a sore throat. I went to bootcamp anyways because I wasnt feeling bad other than the sore throat.

This morning, in addition to that I have the all over achey feeling and a pounding headache! One of our techs is out with the flu and another had a daughter at home with strep... i'm sure he's brought the strep bug to work! I downed a handfull of vitamin C this morning in efforts to "nip it".

I will not get sick, I will not get sick, I will not get sick....

Where the heck has Circe been!?

I didnt take the flue shot. I never do. It never works. Everyone I know that takes the shot, gets sick. This year "they" gave the wrong shot... and everyone is sick with the flu *snicker*

I've noticed the same thing with the flu shot. Also that miso soup and green tea help to fight off illness.

I hope you don't get it either!!! There has been a lot of sickness here too!! A friend's nephew has the flu and he is less than a year old. She said he looks terrible.

I have been wondering where Circe was too. Has she left on her vacation? If so, she picked a good time!

Hope you start feeling better. I don't know which is worse, strep or the flu.

Symbol guy: Yeah, i've never thought the flu shot was all it was cracked up to be. I've grown up this long without it... I think i'll be fine.

Nunu: I dont think she's left yet, but its close! I can't wait to see her pics and hear her stories. I know they are busy at Chaos College this week... accreditation!

Weather: Thanks. I prefer to have neither, but I think the flu is worse. With strep I treat my throat to several packages of pringles. They help scratch as they go down! hehe

Sorry you've been sick, Kerry. Get lots of rest and Vitamin C!

I've never taken the flu shot, either. It all seems like a scam to me :)

I like the line "Nip it in the bud" It reminds me of being a teen and looking at young boobies.

TC said...

Awww, hope you feel better! *hugs*

And yep, you always get sick with the flu shot: cuz there is a virus in it. :)

Hope you don't get sick.
I just got over the flu

Kerry said...

Bone: I'm eating Vit C like crazy, but unfortunately there isnt enough time to sleep :( That might be part of why I feel sick... lack of zzzz's.

TC: Then why in the world would anyone take it!? makes no sense... lol

Angela: I'm glad you're feeling better! I've heard it is pretty rough. We have a guy out with it now and his doctor won't release him for another week.
