    You're a young and healthy male with a strong and resistant immune system. Some are much better off getting the vaccine, some it may not really help.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    My sister, husband and I all got the flu from someone at the haunted house we work at. It was the first time I had ever caught it. It wasn't the death knell that I had been hearing about.

    Yeah, it's not all it's hyped up to be. I got over it in about 10 days and only half were spent suffering worse than a cold. Cough and slight fever are all that's left.

    You know I think the flu doesn't work the same on everyone and also, there are different types of flu. I had one in october and seriously believed I was going to die for 2 days (probably because I couldn't think right, though...). So, ok, it's just 2 days. But 2 horrible days.

    Okay, you're right. I'm sorry. I just have a notoriously tough immune system. >,<
    I'm glad you are better now.

    I got the swine flu last year, and holy Jesus, it was one of the worst weeks of my life, especially seen as my period decided to start and a wisdom tooth that was coming up decided to get infected. So I was a shivering, sweating, cramping, painful mess. And I had to go to Budapest a few days after I got it.

    I think the worst bit about flus is being up all night, in a half dreamlike state, either sweating do much that you've soaked all around you, or shivering so much that it hurts.

    Fortunately by the time I went to Budapest I was pretty much recovered, and just tired from lack of sleep, and in severe pain from my tooth.

    That sounds awful. I've never had any traumatic flu experiences. Maybe once when I was a kid, I watched Batman Forever while having a flu and was confused/scared although I've seen it many times before. It was strange.
    Do you think you‘d sell your soul
    To just have one thing to turn out right?

    Due to the cancer, I have no immune system, so I have gotten the flu 3 times in the last few months. Fucking sucks. I just want to be healthy again. Live my life to the fullest, enjoying it; not laying in a bed feeling like shit watching netflix. I want to be having fun again, party with my friends, go shopping.

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.

    The last time I got the stomach flu was when I was 11... but I think I had some other kind of flu in college. I don't think I've got the flu in the last 6 years, though. I catch a few colds every winter, but nothing worse. I can't really speak for how bad the flu is anymore - it wasn't that bad in college, but I'm a bit older now and even colds are rougher now than they were in college.
