Should I or shouldn't I??
I need some advice here folks. Every year at this time I am torn about what to do about a flu shot. I go back and forth, changing my mind about every hour.
The truth is, I'm not sure I believe in them. I believe we have a natural immune system that should not be messed with unnecessarily. All of this anti-bacterial stuff, and hand sanitizer gel everywhere - I fear it is weakening our natural immunity. And maybe taking these "flu shots" is further destroying our ability to fight on our own?
I just don't know. I am out in the public everyday. Moms condition is not the best and I worry about her getting the flu. It doesn't take much to knock her down. I would feel terrible if I passed on the flu to her. And her other health conditions complicate any infection.
So, herein lies my dilemma. Last year I caved at the last minute and got the shot.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. Please.......
I have my doctors appointment tomorrow afternoon and he will be chomping at the bit to jab me.
