I haven't posted for about three weeks because I've been in a writer's slump. :D
On Monday I got a flu shot and a pneumonia shot. I don't know if it was because I got two shots at the same time or not, but I have been really sick as if I have the flu. Yuk. I never had a flu shot until I got the flu in 1999. I think I was a teen the last time I had the flu. After the 1999 episode, I started getting flu shots. I've always had a slight reaction, but this time at least for about 36 hours I had all the symptoms of flu -- headache, bones and joints ached, slight nausea, and the arm that received the shots felt like (and still feels like) it was kicked by a mule. The arm is still very red and swollen.
There was a lot of controversy about flu shots last year, but I haven't heard anything about this year's shot. So, if you plan to get a flu shot this year, may I suggest you ask your doctor about it or research it on the Internet. :D
Until next time, God bless.
