Flu Fear

So I didn’t get flu vaccines for us this year. One thing led to another, and February was here. It wasn’t total irresponsibility that led to my neglect of the vaccine; it was mostly fear. Most of you parents know what I mean. You do your research on whether or not to get a vaccine for you and your kids (breastfeeding complicates things, too). You see valid points for and against it. And you get frozen there in indecision.

So none of us got the flu vaccine this year. And now I have the flu. And it sucks.

Next year I should be in fear of getting the damn flu (and get the vaccine).

  1. Oh no, I'm so sorry you got it!!! We got vaccines this year but someone told me they weren't very effective because the strain was different, so its always a lose-lose situation.

    I hope you feel better soon:(

  2. Aww! I'm sorry Annie!! I hadn't gotten mine whenever you're supposed to (octoberish?) because I was sick when they were giving them at my work, but I went to my doctor in January and he told me I needed one. I narrowly escaped the flu this year!

    I hope you feel better!

    p.s. I like your little "save handmade" widget!
