Every year I get a flu shot from my endo, because he always gets them and gives them to me for free. Well, go figure, he didn’t get them this year for whatever reason. He said this is the first year in 25 that he hasn’t. Fantastic! Of course, after that, I never got around to getting one…yet.
My fiance, who I live with, did get a flu shot however. So when he started feeling bad last night, I didn’t really think it would be flu. Well, he went to the doctor today and sure enough: FLU. He said is was “mild” though…whatever that means.
Is it even possible for me to avoid it now? I’m doubtful. And this couldn’t come at a worse time, but then when would be a good time to have the flu? Right now I’m thinking just about any time I don’t have two hard deadlines at work coming beginning of December, and three weekends of already-planned travel.
If I’ve ever had the flu before, I don’t remember it. Don’t remember being around my fiance as he’s had it either. Though he’s always sick with something, so in that regard it doesn’t surprise me he got the stupid flu despite getting the shot.
UGH GRRRR @#$#@%#@$!@#!!!
What do you do if you know you’re about to get the flu? (Besides pout)
