On Tuesday my other half and I had our annual 'flu shots. He is fortunate in not having any ill effects but unfortunately for some reason I develop a quite sore arm with a large lump and a slight feeling of unwellness.
We have been having these shots for years now and several years back one of the doctors decided I should just have a half dose two years running and I think I felt better when that happened. However, the past few years I bit the bullet and thought "I am older now and I do have diabetes and there are lots of nasty strains of 'flu going the rounds so best I have the complete dose". Yes, I've had the sore arm and felt a bit squiffy for a day or two but this time I really feel as though I am developing the 'flu which of course I am not.
I know this will pass but I could do without feeling this way....slightly warmish with a head full of cotton wool. I feel that is perhaps why my blood glucose has been higher the past couple of days too. I think I just need some TLC and I will feel loads better.
Am I looking for sympathy from my friends out there in blogland? Of course I am so how about it? The poor old chook needs lots of good wishes. Joking, of course, as I will be fine by the weekend, of that I am sure.
Incidentally the results of pathology from when I had my colonoscopy (which was clear) and endoscopy (biopsies were taken) are all good. No helicobacter or signs of coeliac disease and the little 'polyps' were apparently nothing whatsoever. It's always great to get good news so I would think no more of that type of test ever again. Big sigh of relief!!
