Regretting procrastinating on that flu shot. Went to the urgent care expecting antibiotics for a sinus infection and left with a positive Influenza B test.

:zowned:

Now I wont be leaving tomorrow with the family for our annual up north for new years with friends. I hope I can join them on Sunday.

THIS SUCKS!

Thanks - well, I'm a new man today. My wife speculates I got a false positive flu test, which is very common early in the flu season, apparently. I think she's right. The reason I snapped back is likely the antibiotics they gave me for what the doc also suspected was a sinus infection. But I dont think you bounce back like this in 1 day from the flu.

I wish I bounced back in one day. I've got a cold and then I was up from 0699 Thursday till about 0100 Saturday. Due to work. That seriously f'ed me up with having a cold. I was progressing well thru the cold but that put me back for sure.

Not really. I have never called in sick in 14 years. I even went after being in the hospital for kidney stones. May still have been under the influence of the morphine.

How did you end up eating onions? I thought you were super awesome at avoiding them!

mom made green beans ( part of christmas dinner ) and seasoned them with potatoes and onions. i didn't see any onions and ate some before realizing there were onions in it. i'm still suffering the after affects today

fuck the flu shot. I have only had the flu 1 time in the past 15 years and it was the fucking year I got the damn flu shot and I almost died. Fuck that shit. Haven't got the shot since and haven't had the flu since either. It is just a broad spectrum shot so chances are you will get the flu anyways. It doesn't cover all strains. And I am not a human guinea pig. Also I don't trust doctors or the government or any of that shit they try to spoon feed us.

I'm with ya man. But I learned from others mistakes... I have never gotten the flu shot and never will.

well I was kind of forced at the time. our company offered it and the owner said everyone better get it or he wouldn't pay sick time. I didn't want to be the jackass who got sick that didn't get it. So I got it and then got sick. At first he was bitching see I told you that you should have got the shot - then his jaw dropped when I said the shot is what got me sick motherfucker.
