I hate the flu shot

25 September 2009
I won't take it.  It makes me feel horrible.  My doctor says I have a "reaction" to it.  I say it gives me the flu.  I know it technically doesn't.  But it makes me feel like I have it, so what's the difference really?  My kids get the same reaction so they don't get the shot (or mist) either.  I felt a little guilty about that this year, what with the swine flu, sorry H1N1 virius.  Then I read this article that says that the flu shot increases your risk for getting the Swine Flu...maybe.  Ha!  I feel vindicated!
