Okay, I'm getting a complex.
I get sick. A lot. But luckily, rarely seriously (knock wood!). Especially with twins in preschool, though, I catch a lot of minor colds.
What does that mean, besides that I'm constantly just a little bit sick? Well, I found out a few weeks ago it means I can't donate blood, even if it's just a runny nose.
More annoyingly, today I got turned away at the flu clinic. The nurse heard me coughing in line, and she said, "No flu shot for you!"
When am I supposed to get a flu shot, then? If I can't get a flu shot when I have a cold, isn't November a little late to have the very first (and only) flu shot clinic? Granted, I've been sick on and off since mid-September, and that probably would have been pretty early to get a flu shot, but come one! Doesn't everyone have a cold by the time November rolls around? Shouldn't they have let the "normal" folks get flu shots last month, instead of only offering them to "high risk" patients?
I swear, next year I'm arguing that having kids in preschool should qualify me for the "high risk" group.
What a pain in the patootie. If it's so important to get a flu shot (and I agree that it is), why do doctor's offices always make it so inconvenient to get one? I told the nurse today that I had to get my flu shot, even though I was sick, because I wasn't going to risk the flu this year. Luckily, she said once I was better, I could call and make an appointment to get a shot; she didn't think there'd be a flu shot shortage this year. So now I just have to hope that I can shake this cold before I catch the next. And that she wasn't kidding about them not running out of flu shots.
Have you gotten your flu shot?

Current NaNo Attitude: I have a headache. Oh, that has nothing to do with my novel. It's just feeling more like work today, maybe because it's a weekend. Luckily, my awesome husband is taking the boys to the zoo after lunch, so I'll get an hour or two to focus.
