One Flu Over!

One woman can only run for so long.

All I’ve been hearing about his how bad this flu season is this year. Everybody get your flu shot is all I hear all over. I have never been a fan of that shot. My reason? The first time I got the sucker, I got everything but the flu! It was like, you might have the plague, but it’s not the flu.

Well, this year, everybody in my house go the shot but me. I meant to get it, but mama gets too busy doing a million other things. So, I didn’t get around to it.

Then, my little family started dropping like flies. First, my son had a fever. It lasted for three days. The minute he gets better, my baby girl gets the fever and some flu symptoms. She gets better over a weekend and sure enough on Monday my husband is sick. He got the fever, cough and straight up flu.

Of course, I played my part in helping everybody get better. I thought I was nearly superwoman fighting off their cooties. The freaking joke’s on me.


On Wednesday, it started with a cough. On Thursday, I was full on fighting the flu!!! Chills, sweat, aches – ugh! This is what you call a man down situation! The hubs was still sick and trying to take care of me.

I am somehow on the mend. Not one hundred percent but getting there. I still don’t know how I feel about a flu shot. I mean, if we all get sick no matter what, what’s the point?

That’s how I spent my weekend. Laid up. Sick. While it was gorgeous 70’s weather out here.

I did manage to catch #BeyonceBowl, did you? How did you spend your weekend?

    Oh man, I feel for you. I don’t get the flu shot either because I always get sick without fail with or without. The one year I was responsible I got a strain which wasn’t the one I was vaccinated for…cuz I’m just that lucky. I hope you all start feeling better soon.

    I didn’t have a fever, but was super sick this past weekend too. Chills, aching body, watery eyes, coughing, dry itchy throat, runny nose. Not fun considering I go back to work on Tuesday. I’m still feeling weak today (with nasal congestion & coughing). Get well soon my friend!

    My kids got the shot too. They get it every year. They have had the common cold, but no FLU – THANK GOD! Me and my husband never get the shot, but this year I got one because I am pregnant! I was kinda sick (running, nose, mucas cough) but no FLU symptoms. I agree… why get the shot if you are going to catch it anyway. BUT this year, it was 3 strains of the flu out so.. while the shot covers you from 1, there were 2 others lurking out there somewhere! Glad you all are on the rise to healthy!!

    I didn’t get the shot either. My husband has to get it because he works in the hospital. The kids got it so I was depending on their immunities to protect me!

    I don’t think I will be getting it for the children moving forward after reading up on it.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I didn’t get the shot…I keep meaning too, I pass by dozens of drugstores daily but somehow I haven’t gotten it. None of us have really. Again, been meaning too! I need some

    So sorry girl, us too. Sick all weekend. Glad to read you’re on the mend. Sick kids are sad but a sick mama is serious business. Take care of yourself.

    I hope you get well soon! I never get it but my first year with Nia then traveling abroad over winter with her last year my dr. advised I get it. This year I didn’t, but DH did and he’s the one who’s ended up sick a few times. I think it’s just hit or miss each year.

    the mask…i told you to get the mask, Cam. bless your heart. i totally know how you feel. and it’s not good. at all. oh – one last thing. i got swine flu in 2009 (thanks to my kids) and even that near-death experience can’t make me get a flu shot.
