Rarely does this deal with the flu, but some have even questioned the logic of getting flu shots.
I did not get one this year. I don't know why. I just never got around to it. The rest of my family did. Just not me.
So instead I got the flu.
|It was much much much much worse than this!|
I will never make that mistake again. For the first time in my 18 year teaching career, I missed two consecutive days of work due to being sick. Moreover, I was the sickest I've been probably ever as an adult.
103.8 degree fever. Intense chills for an hour at a time while unable to get warm no matter what I did, followed by being drenched in sweat and unable to get cooled off no matter what I did.
I was literally stuck to the couch for days. I was unable to get up except for emergencies. I was unable to stomach much in the way of food or drink.
My humble advice to you? Get a flu shot. I will never miss another year.
|Don't be a baby! Get the shot.|
