I agree with Tex..! I remember when that H1N1 vaccination came out. The amount of "side-effects" that came with that.
As much as I don't like what it is doing to me right now, my body will build a defense mechanism towards it. That is why I don't agree with these jell hand dispensers everywhere. Our bodies need germs, so it can build a defense system (but let's not go over-board with that).
Much like the "cold-sore" on one's lip. I have found that the fastest way to get rid of one, is by NOT touching it. Blistex or whatever else has never worked for me.
When I watch CNN... they show in red, that 47 states (in the USA) are affected by this cold-flu. Well, their map shows it all along the 49th parallel. It didn't stop there, it's in many areas of Canada too. Heck, it is in Alaska.
I'm a diabetic, so I take a Metformin 500mg pill 4 times a day. I take 1 Olmetec 40mg pill once a day for high blood pressure. BUT.. I also take 2000iu of vitamin D, & a mull-vitamin for persons 50+.
So I'll just ride it out. Life will go on.
