The Crud

I'm on round two. I never get sick this much! Missed work today, but, thankfully, my doc can fit me in this afternoon. I've got derby practice starting tonight. First bout is in a month. I cannot be sick!

Misery loves company. Anyone else sharing in my misery?

Round one hospitalized me. Cost me out the ass. Round two could do me in, so no thank you.

My wife is halfway around the world and has a chest infection, probably more miserable in her 70 degree climate than she would here in the 30's.

I usually do, but I haven't the last couple of years.

Slam down at least a quart of grape juice, lay flat on your back and pee as much as you can (yeah, you have to get up for this part). Something in the grapes is a killer antioxidant. Laying flat helps get the juice into your kidneys and pissing flushes the germs out.

Flu shots are a money grab. I'm not going to go all anti-vax wingnut here, but honestly, flu shots protect you from very few of the various flu strains and their protection against those is moderate at best.

Exercise, wash your hands regularly, and eat right and your chances of avoiding the flu are pretty comparable.

Many people don't have to pay for the flu shot. I got mine for free at work.

For those who do, you are talking about a few measley little bucks. The flu is such a terrible inconvenience, its worth it.

I've never had a flu shot. I'm not sure why I haven't taken the time to do it, other than I generally don't get sick.

Generally, if you don't get a flu shot, you can expect to get the flu maybe once every 5 or 6 years. Maybe as seldom as 8. So, 4 or 5 times out of 6 years, its a complete waste. (Then of course, for those years when you may be exposed to the flu and it could help, sometimes they guess wrong on which flu to immunize against that year)

So really, getting flu shots may only prevent the flu once a decade or so. Since the flu shot is so cheap, and the flu is so awful (the real flu, not a cold, a lot of people get a cold and think "the flu isn't so bad"), its still worth it.

Just because you don't get sick often doesn't mean you have some magical super-protection against the flu, unless your immune system is shot, you aren't supposed to get sick very often.
