Holy crap people

Go get flu shots right now. RIGHT NOW DAMMIT.

I don't care if you buy into the whole swine flu epidemic or not at least get the regular flu. I had some weird fluish bug this weekend and it was awful. At one point my fever got up to 104 and change and I was shivering under six blankets.

It was ugly. Very ugly. More to the point... I was ugly.

Get your flu shot.

*Full disclosure, I have yet to get mine because my hopsital/clinic are douche bags and keep moving the date around that they will give them out.

Oh and Allison, I didn't quite make it to the post office but its on my list to do today.


  1. You poor thing! I sympathize.

    After dodging the shots for years, I got the flu last winter. Even with my sweetie there to take care of me, I was still miserable to the point of tears. This year, no sweetie = definite flu shot.

    Thank you for the public service announcement! I hope you're feeling back to perfect soon.

  2. Your base clinic doesn't have it yet?! Man, our vaccine clinic called everyone to say it was available.

    I am glad you are feeling better. Was Flyboy around to help you out with the boys?

  3. I'm glad it only lasted the weekend. We saw a 60 minutes thing about the flu... it's very bad this year. Very bad.

    You have three boys and one is a newborn and you had the flu this weekend and think I'm going to harp about you getting to the post office? I have my feet propped up on the dirty laundry right now. Pace yourself.

  4. my work is giving them out for free, but i don't know which strand they are giving out since I have already been exposed to Strand A....

    That high a temp is no fun! J* got up higher when he was home

  5. I swear to God that Eliza had the "swine flu" last year. Well, all the kids had it. It was ugly, very ugly. And I was scared!

    I am so sorry that you got sick! What a rotten bug! Here's hoping you are on the upswing now.


  6. The clinic here keeps jerking around on giving dependents the flu shots! UGH!! I hope you are feeling better!

  7. My state has lifted the ban on Thimoseral in the vaccines. I'm staying waaaay away from that thing. I'd rather be sick and ugly =).

  8. I'm taking bay on thursday and madeline got her a few weeks ago. I have to go get mine at some point
    as for swine i dont know when we will do that

  9. Well I'm glad to hear that you're doing better. That stinks that you were sick all weekend. Hopefully, you'll be able to get your shot soon!

  10. I got mine two weeks ago. I normally don't but I heard the flu this year is a bitch. I def. don't want to catch that.
    Hope you are feeling better.

  11. Hope you're feeling better! Everybody around here is out of flu shots (both seasonal and pig varieties) but supposedly they are coming soon.

    And then I'm getting them. both of them, because, OMG, do you know how much germ there is in a public library? ugh.


I'm not going to lie... I live for comments. Nice ones that is.
