I've been a Type 1 for a little over 5 years. I've got my flu shot every year...
But this year the flu (or some God-awful virus) got me before I got my shot. Thursday night I went to bed at 10 pm with an upset stomach. Woke up at 2:30 am, threw up twice, started feeling better. Then I woke up at 4:00 am threw up again and realized that the E.R. was where I needed to be. Spent the night in the E.R., enjoying a 102 degree temperature.
The next day the trouble attacked the other end, so, for Pete's sake, get your shot and be careful. Wash your hands religiously. Also, make sure you have sick supplies on hand. Have both Sugar-free and regular 7-up (or Sprite) and some regular and unleaded electrolyte-replacement drinks on hand.
The bug I had was NASTY and lasted at least 48 hours.
