    How do you know you have the flu?

    We started giving flu vaccinations this week. For anyone with a SCI, now is the time to get your shot. Easy-Peezy, not even a little soreness (I got mine on Tuesday).

    I thought it was too early for flu. We usually get it at christmas. Maybe it it the uti who gives you fever.

    Glad I got my shot. Got it at the grocery store of all places. LOL, my brother was asked me, "Are you serious?" I said hell yeah, the flu is no joke. I havent had the flu in 15-16 years but after being sick and having congestion and breathing problems 2 months ago I'm not playing around.

    Tell him you're a warrior and will take your chances. Did he say the vaccine would kill your sister too?
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Yeppers. I hear you. Got my flu shot Monday at the drug store. There are now quickie care clinics in many pharmacies, malls and grocery stores. Most are staffed by a Nurse Practitioner who handles less complex health needs than a physician. I appreciate the convenience.

    The flu is nothing to monkey with.
