Flu shot didn't work this year

Since I'm required by TX law to get my flu shot or wear a mask from October thru May, I obviously got my shot.  Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with the flu last night, as I've had fever, chills, aches, sore throat, migraine level headache, and "stomach issues" I won't go into.  I'm officially miserable, but hoping it'll be short lived.  The worst is the inability to sleep, thanks to both the constant cough and fever/chills/sweats cycles I keep going through.  Ugh.  Hopefully everyone else is having a better day.  All I know is that I need to feel better ASAP, cause I have cookies to bake, shopping to do, and work, work, work.  I get to spend my Christmas Eve and day at work, but then I have a week off for New Years in exchange!  Going to see my family and enjoy some down time, but most importantly, I'm kissing this year good-bye, unless of course we all do die on the 21st, in which case none of this will matter a bit, hehe.

I hope you are feeling better now, it stinks to get sick so close to Christmas.
