    [QUOTE (CNN) - Scientists are concerned about what they're seeing so far this flu season, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday, a day after the agency advised doctors this year's flu vaccine is not as effective because the current strain of the virus has mutated./QUOTE]

    I saw that on the news just now

    ten years ago I got the flu so bad I thought I may die

    got a flu shot every year since and never got it again

    i'm actually quite unsettled by this news

    Then again I have never had a flu shot. sure I caught the virus because I was careless.
    I changed my behavior. having knowledge is a power beyond your wildest dreams.

    it was my mothers
    was at the parent's house, had to crap, they had no toilet paper

    OK, this might be the very definition of TMI (too much information).

    This is a little scary for me... something I haven't mentioned on here, but is the truth...

    Jan 7th of this year I went home from work feeling pretty out of it... shit wasn't right, and I knew it was something out of the ordinary for days before, but I'm stubborn and thought I'd power through it... I'd participated in my friends wedding the weekend before and figured "this too shall pass"....

    By 2pm on the 8th I was in the ICU with a 5% estimate of survival... it was over, basically.

    Type A1 flu killed 4 other people in the same ICU ward I was in this year... all I had to do was miss a Super Bowl and subsequently learn to walk again this year.

    Fucking flu is no joke... I was first in line for the company sponsored shot this past September... but now we get this news?

    Get a shot anyway, I implore you.... the alternative is the worst thing I've ever been through.
