I got one 25 years ago and got sicker than a dog. Never got another one and never had the flu since.
I don't, and don't get the flu.
F.A.T. (Fuck All That)
I may get a little head cold or congested lungs for a week or so, but I don't get that nasty flu bug.
I have never gotten a flu shot. I cant remember having the flu...i think i had it a couple times when i was a kid.
I have no problems with needles or shit like that. I just don't see the need to inject shit into my body.
I don't mind shots too much unless they are in my eye.....those suck
i get one if it's convenient to do so. since i don't work in a building with hundreds of people anymore, i catch fewer bugs.
i'm off to the VA in a week or 2. i'll get one there this year.
Is it weird that I get a thrill when I get my blood drawn?
I look forward to that.
And no I am not a junkie.
Good luck with it.
never had a shot in my eye.
hope i never have to.
eh. you gotta die from something.
i had a cut on my eyelid (rear ended by a douchebag). the dr had to stitch it up. i think i may have had a little booze that night.
They are giving away free flu shots here.
I might do that.
I am kinda the same way. If I go to a blood drive or a blood bus I get excited if my bag fills up faster than people who were already there before me.
I often make fun of people that are afraid of needles.
They get pissed at me.
We were just talking about this...fear is probably our most primordial motivator and individual fears for any given person can be ok and historically fear has kept us alive. However, ever since Madison Ave. and Washington DC have discovered this its been sort of abused for control.
I'd laugh at a person's fear of needles but I probably have some pretty lame fears as well.
I wash my hands frequently with OCD kicked in high gear, I'm cognizant of what I touch and if at all possible I cover my hand when opening doors and touching Point of sales terminals you have to be mental about it or you'll rub your eyes/pick your nose and bam'mo you get the yuck fudge
nope. never have. my sister does and she ALWAYS gets the flu.
So in reality flu shot = shoo, shoo retarded flu!
