The lovely nurse did my blood draw in one go as usual and then we sat down to discuss the Flu Jab.
NOTE THIS RELATES TO UK FLU JAB AND MY EXPERIENCE HERE ONLY
This years Flu jab that they were planning on giving me (the basic UK Flu Jab for 'at risk people') has LIVE Bird Flu vaccine in it - it's not just a vaccination (which it is some years) this year like last there's live virus in there.
I've declined the vaccine on the basis that with my still low T & B cells and that by avoidance of germy people and the obsessive use of Anti Bac I've stayed illness free all this time and I'm not risking it. If that turns out to be a bad decision, you're all welcome to say 'We Told You So' 'You're an Idiot' and what my dad used to call my mum and I on a regular basis 'Stupid bloody woman' - I know it's silly but I still miss being called that 12 years on and now there's just me left. I'd give everything I have for a single minute.


Enough rambling - where was I - oh yes only one hole in me and no Flu Jab.


Life is good, I'm feeling great I happen to have MS - so what I'm in charge :-) xx
