Flu Shot and the Flu

This week I did my usual preventative flu shot. The district I work in requires that all teachers get one so they have a shot clinic at the school for $20.00 a pop. I called my parents and they came out for it as well since the price was much cheaper than anywhere else around.

The flu shot is a micro dose of the actual flu. If you are already healthy, you will not be affected. However, if you have had your foot re-arranged surgically, your tendons spliced, and a blood clot in your may not be as "healthy" as you should be when you get the shot.

Yes dear readers, that's right, the flu shot gave me the flu. I started getting sick during 6th period Thursday and it got worse. Friday was a blur and I'm not sure how I made it though teaching but I was a trooper, plus my students this year are awesome so that helps. Now it's Saturday and I've taken so much Vitamin C I think my skin is glowing green but my throat has gone from swallowing acid feeling to scratchy so I must be on the mend. Hopefully, I can get over this in time for Open House Monday.
