Every year I preach the importance of getting the flu shot, but I’ve paid the price for not following my own advice. Teaching always insured I’d receive a reminder when the flu shot was available as well as a date when I could schedule an appointment for the free shot at my workplace. Not this year. No reminder. No appointment. No flu shot. Instead, four days of fever, chills, headache, sneezing, running nose and cough. Yuck!
Wrapped in blankets in bed, on the couch and finally sitting on the porch, I wasted too much time popping pills to relieve flu symptoms.
Finally, I decided to get serious. Only by gulping the nasty stuff can you kick the nasty stuff!
Hopefully, you were smart enough to get the flu shot, but if not take the liquid stuff.
