Flu shot or coincidence?

You know how they say that you don't get the flu from the flu shot?
Liars, liars, pants on fire!
I'm sick. Jeff is sick. We've been sick for almost a week now. And it feels a lot like the flu. This happened just a few days after getting the shot. What conclusion am I supposed to come up with? I know "they" say that you only get sick if you already had it in your system, but we were fine before. That's all I'm saying.
Since I've known Jeff I noticed that he tends to always get the flu right after he gets the shot. I experimented with his health a few years back and asked him not to get it... and surprise, surprise that was the only year he didn't get the flu. See? Wifey knows best. OK, not really but it proves my point. This year I decided to follow his lead and I got it too. I figured I'm TTC'ing and its the right thing to do. Second time I got it and second time I got sick, doesn't help my already pre-conceived notion, does it?
Maybe its just coincidence. Maybe Jeff always has it in his system and the shot brings it out, who knows? Maybe its just because our guards are down. I've been on the sad side with my due date, our fertility issues and my stupid tumor. Um, I mean nice tumor. I don't want to upset it... just in case.
Maybe our stress made us sick? I don't know. But I want to investigate into this whole flu shot thing..... I think its out to get us.


  1. I dont get a flu shot simply because I think it WILL make me sick so Im a believer of this "conspiracy" I've never had the shot and dont get the flu, however, so I might be on to something. I look forward to your findings :)

  2. Ha ha. Great post. I always get the flu shot and nothing happens but my DH always gets sick right after. Maybe its in the guys system and your dh got you sick?


  3. I think you are on to something!

    I hope you and your husband feel better soon.

  4. I never get the flu shot and I never get the flu... I agree, its a conspiracy! ;) Hope you feel better soon.
