I’m getting my flu vac. I’m so scared. I don’t mind the needle and getting the shot. I’m afraid I might get sick after the shot and I won’t be able to race .
It happened last year. I got the flu vac and I ended up feverish afterwards. Then a few months later, I got what I call the fake flu — all the flu symptoms but without the temperature. So why get it? Hay!
For 2 years in a row now, Mesh and I would have this conversation with very little variation.
Bards : I’m getting the flu vac on <insert day>.
Mesh : Why are you getting it again, akala ko ba it makes you sick?
Bards : Ksi nga, what if I dont get it tapos I get a strange flu strain and infect the whole office.
Mesh : Tapos, 2 months from now you will say you’re not feeling well. That you have the flu symptoms without the temperature.
Bards : True. Me and my superego talaga. Sige pag this time I get the fake flu again no more flu vac na talaga next year.
<Repeat next year>
Wish me luck!
