So, after being nagged by two of the more powerful influences in my life (my dad and my boss), I got a flu shot on Monday. Having never had a flu shot before (I HATE needles, and I think my parents knew that the battles to fight were the ones involving life-saving inoculations and things), there was some wackiness involving uncertainty as to whether or not I was allergic, but despite feeling a bit headachy and strange a few hours later, it was okay. I took a DayQuil that evening and felt right as rain the next day.
Now, however, I've gone from feeling great to feeling like ass in about half an hour. Headache, chills, sore throat, blech. Hopefully, the two DayQuil I just downed will make it all go away. But I'm still going to be on the road all afternoon and evening, behind the wheel for most of it.
