Thank you for all your wellwishes...

Monday, November 26, 2012

Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I wish wellness for you all too. I don't believe in Flu shots so will not get one. I am slowing getting better but not at work today. That is so hard for me to call in sick but I must think of me first, not the paycheque.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

    In my whole life I have never gotten a flu shot and only had the flu twice, thats in 50 years. I think those vaccines plus our "germ-free" environments play havoc with our immune systems. I hope you get well soon!

    I'm with you, I don't get the flu shot either. The last 2 times I got the flu shot, a couple months later, both times, I got the worst stomach flu ever. I was soooo sick, I don't remember being that sick since I was a child. My whole family came down with the flu both times too. The first time, my son and I both had the flu shot and my husband hadn't. He only got mildly sick and was over it the quickest. My son got sick first and took the longest to get well. Even for me, it took 4 days before I could get out of bed. The 2nd time, we had all gotten sick and this time my husband was as bad as the rest of us and he had gotten the shot that year. Ever since, I stopped getting them because to me it was a waste of money if I was still getting the flu. I haven't had the flu since I stopped getting the shot. I now think my healthy eating habits and exercise keep me healthier than getting some shot. That being said, I'm not against all vaccines, I do vaccinate my children. I just don't see the point in the flu shot based on the research I've done and my own personal experience.

    I always get a flu shot since I almost died and I seldom get sick now. I hope you have a speedy recovery.
