Yesterday I had my 2nd (of two) shingles immunizations. (Shingrix -- the new and highly effective vaccine against shingles.) When I had my first one, my doctor didn't warn me of the side effects. (In fact, he told me there really were none.) (Which proved to be Not True.) Anyway, I had some pretty dramatic - and surprising - side effects. As in . . . I was out of commission for a full day after the shot. (Think flu symptoms and you've pretty much got it.)
So, when it was time for my 2nd immunization, I planned a bit more. I cleared my schedule and warned people that I might be feeling bad. And I kept my fingers crossed that maybe for the second go-round, I wouldn't feel so bad.
Here I am.
Feeling like total crap today.
(But I won't get shingles, which has got to be WAY worse than a couple of days of flu-like symptoms, y'know?)
Let's just say . . . I'm totally unraveled today!
So I'll just sit and knit . . . and nap . . . and sip my tea. And wait for my symptoms to pass.
(And, on the plus side, I woke up today in a Michigan where weed is legal, gerrymandering is outlawed*, voting laws are loosened, and my Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, and U.S. Senator are all Democrats -- AND WOMEN! If that doesn't help my flu-like symptoms, I don't know what could.) (Well. Actually I do. But this is a good start.)
* This one is especially satisfying because Betsy DeVos and her family POURED money into the campaign for the opposition. (Ha.)
