The Flu Shot....Not For Me!
So Friday, while Bailey was at chemo....I was asked if I had gotten Bailey her flu shot. I saw her flinch at merely the topic of more needles. (poor girl)
We were told how important the flu shot was, to protect Bailey. "Her immune system is not like everyone else's....and it's vital everyone get one." the nurses in the room told us.
So...I agreed. Both Bailey and I rolled up our sleeves and got the injection. I'm not a wimp with needles, but dang it....This one hurt!
I felt fine the rest of the day....but on Saturday.....AND every single day since...I have been sick! Body aches, head aches, tummy aches...
I get NO sympathy from my hubby, who says..."I told ya so..." But he has taken up the slack for me, and I appreciate that! (XOX Honey)
I vow, to never get the flu shot again. I vow to not let doctors talk me into something, that I am not comfortable doing.
Bailey has been fine, after the shot...I'm so happy about that! But as for me....I will NEVER get the shot again!
