I encourage everyone to make sure they have gotten their flu shots for this year.
Last night, I took my fiance to the doctors, where they tested and confirmed that she has Influenza A, which can be deadly this year. it is resistant to Tamiflu, so there is no treatment for it at all this year.
She has been quarantined at home for the next 7-10 days per doctors orders.
She already has lung issues, from years of smoking, so her lungs are weak. I was told to get her to the hospital ASAP if there are any problems with her breathing...As I sit here and type this thread, her breathing is a bit labored now, but not bad enough to take her yet.
I had the flu shot in December, so if anything, I'll get a few days of aches and pains.
We've already had a couple of flu related deaths in my area this year, so I am scared shitless right now.
Please...for yours and your family's sake, go out and get this flu shot.
I'm not a real dickhead...but I acted like one in high school.
