I have the flu

I am so bored, frustrated, and sick! 

Yes, I got my flu shot in October, but I've been sick since Tuesday PM, and it was getting worse instead of better, so I went to the doctor this morning.  Positive flu test.  How can this be?  I'm retired; I don't go a whole lot of places full of germy people (school, bus, office, elevator).  I wash my hands.

I'm high risk, too, Terre, but I have egg allergy.  I can't get flu vaccine until they find a better way to culture it.  I'm hopeful that some of those nasal mists will be an acceptable alternative for those of us with the egg allergy.

Wow Karen , that's terrible. I agree, they need to  find another way to culture it. I'm sure there are many others out there that are allergic to eggs so it's very much needed. Hopefully, one day!
