I got my flu shot yesterday, plus a TDAP shot, which is tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. That's right, folks, the Whooping Cough has made a comeback. The comeback is due to lots of people who don't like immunizations. WTF? Anyway, though I had the shot as a baby, they thought I should get a booster. The shots kicked my butt, and I spent most of today asleep on my recliner. Both of my shoulders are sore, which wouldn't be a big deal but I need my shoulders to roll on in aikido. I know, wahhh! These are first world problems. I get a few hours of annoyance from some shots that many people can't even get. I will not be getting Whooping Cough or flu this season because at my level of middle classdom, I can get shots. I often think about how my income level affects my ability to deal with health issues. I can afford to get pills to curb my allergy symptoms, I can get a flu shot. I even have insurance to cover my insomnia issues. Not fair that those who don't earn what I do not to have access to health care.

Sunday is my nephew's birthday celebration. These kids keep growing up and having birthdays. Next it will be Christmas.

I've been waiting for this to happen... People are stupid. People appear to think that immunizations make diseases "go away"... and for some reason, they get really mad at me when I point out that diseases like polio occur naturally. In nature. Which means if you're immunized against it, you could get it.

Waiting for that one to make a comeback in about five to ten years. Should be fascinating.

I'm super bitter right now, so I'ma wander off somewhere...

People are oh, so stupid! My experience teaching school has only served to underline that fact...
