It's an Epidemic

I just had the flu. I haven’t had the flu in years. Actually, the last time I had the flu was the year before I started taking a flu shot. Yes, I admit there were years back then when I guess I thought I was invincible. And then the flu smacked me in the forehead, and I haven’t made that decision again. Seriously, I remember that my partners pretty much tied me down to make me take the shot the following year.


But nonetheless I just had the flu. The moral of my story though is how things have changed. I knew I was sick one day and went to the doctor the next. Mind you, I was pretty darn sick but not quite flu sick. As the PA at the office eloquently said, “you don’t look sick enough.” Sure enough, it was Flu A, but because of the flu vaccine a pretty darn mild appearance.


And to top it off, I left with a prescription for Tamiflu which works to both help symptoms and shorten the duration.


So, all in all, while I’m not happy to have had a bout of flu, I can say that in this instance the world of medicine truly helped this one along.

    if you're coughing the best thing to do is drink a whole bottle of Milkof Magnesia. then you'll be afraid to cough.

    People can complain all they want about pharmaceuticals but when we need them, they are plenty darn good to have available. And you will be all better and ready to rock for the soirée next week.

    I hope it has passed and you are fully recovered. There was another virus going around which appears to have taken out whole communities---gastrointestinal. My daughter brought it back from Penn. Gratefully thus far I seem to have escaped other than day of feeling queesy.

    Oh no, Nancy! I'm glad that you get the flu shot because, as you said, it reduces the symptoms should one get the virus anyway. I hope you fully recover soon!

    Hope you feel better soon. My friend got the flu shot and still got the flu as well.

    Hi Nancy- Also hope you're back in the pink soon. Actually, that popped out unplanned, maybe an under the radar suggestion from Norman's comment which made me LOL. See, there's something funny and good even in learning about a malady. Cheers!
