Don't ever take a flu shot
I must strongly advice anyone who’s thinking about taking a flu shot against doing it. Before I took mine, I hadn’t been sick for a year. Since I took it…. Well let’s put it this way, I took it maybe 1,5 month ago and now I’m battling my second cold. Sure, I’m aware of the fact that you can get a mini-flu as a result of a flu shot, but I think this has gone on long enough now. Right now I don’t actually have a flu, but a sore throat and a pounding head (apparently quite a few people have this nowadays –is this the 2010 version of the swine flu?). It’s so annoying! I want to exercise! My yoga membership hasn’t been used for weeks. My legs are longing for a run –gosh, being “sick” sucks! I’ve been good all wknd, resting, taking it easy, eating a lot of healthy stuff including loads of fruits. But no. Still not gone. Anyway, this was not meant to be a pity post, but more like an advice against anyone thinking about taking a flu shot. Save that money for something else.
