I hate needles. Needles make me woozy. The site of a needle makes my heart palpitate. I break out in a cold sweat. I feel my head start to spin. I do not take Flu Shots lightly. I just can't help it. I also CANNOT just go down an isle at the pharmacy/Wal-Mart/street corner drive thru (yes, I am serious, I have heard of this)... whatever and walk through and get a flu shot. I have to deep breath. I have to sit or lay down. I have to take a break after and gather myself. If not, I will indeed faint.
I got a Flu Shot yesterday. I got one for free at my place of employment. There is now a lump on my arm and it's red and slightly feverish.
I felt fine GOING INTO this flu shot thing. No symptoms of a cold. Nada... Nothing. I am getting sick NOW.
So now I have a red, lumpy sore arm. I have a stuffy nose, my throat hurts and I have been feverish all day.
Flu shots suck. I know they are suppose to be good for you. I know that a bazillion people will be saved by the flu shot. Nope, not me... I get sick from mine.
I am officially Debbie Downer from SNL.... waaaaaa whhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaa
