As our Doctors, and local Hospitals are much visited by me lately, my last week's diabetic revue was going along almost nicely when I was asked if I wanted the FLU jab.

I said yes as normal but mentally thought how much it had affected me previously, but hey its free, I`m old, and not so well - yippee

That was Thursday, Friday it began, then each day it got worse, as when I woke this morning I felt like shi- you know, not so good. blinding headache, and generally  feeling rough.

My meds were taken, then it was a bowl of porridge & cuppa, now some hours later most of the pains have gone for a while.

Now i`m on some very nice LO`R XL coffee out my TASSIMO and a bag of "Kettle" pan fried lightly salted crisps as I need them - lol

Each years its the same with me - flu jab then ill for a week or so, but we are told It has no after effects.

Hey Ho eh - LOL

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

Ian, what you are saying doesn't make sense!  If it affects you that way...…………….for goodness sake don't have it. It only covers certain strains at any rate!

I have never had it, and I have never had the flu. (I am sitting in a wooden chair, with my hands firmly on the arms!!)

Hope you feel better soon!
