flu shot, not

flu2.jpgBeen down and out a couple of weeks with this cold/flu that’s going around. Not fun and I’m still full of drainage and coughing. Guess I’m glad to get it out of the way, but wish I just didn’t get it at all. I rarely get sick so am not very tolerant of illness when it does strike.

My best advice if you fall victim to this crud is to consume lots of OJ and warm water. Drinking warm water and breathing steam were the only things I found comforting between bouts of hacking and crouping. The dry, desert air is not conducive to recovery, so flood those damn germs out by warming your drinking water and consuming it in mass quantities. I took airborne and coldeeze and I think most of that stuff just ended up in the Valley sewer system. Since flu shots haven’t been given yet, wonder if it’s worth it to get one? Probably end up with another version of the stupid flu. Good luck.

    Actually, flu shots have been available for over a month now.

    Check the listings at Community Information & Referral.

    Oh, and you can’t get the flu from a flu shot. However, you can get a flu shot and still get the flu. It takes a couple of weeks from the date of the shot to build up immunity and the shots don’t cover every flu strain out there.

    Not sure if you have the flu or a cold? Ask the American Lung Association.
