Sunday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Do you get the flu vaccination each year?

   Every year I ask for the flu mist. Every year the nurse looks at me like I must be joking  smhair  . Then, BLAM! In the arm it goes! The girls of course get the mist.

Ever since I had my Heart Attack in 2002, my Dr has advised me to get one, so I do!

I have for 2 yrs in a row now. My pulmonary dr says if I were to get the bad flu there is a very good chance of not making it because of my lungs. He just does not think they are strong enough to fight off an infection like that. I take Tylenol the first 24 hours after getting the shot and have had no problems from the shot.

I rarely get the flu and cannot handle needles. So I give it a miss every year so far.

Although my current office people have a very bad habit of coming in while they are sick. Drives me up the wall. I keep saying if they want to come into the office sick and sit near me, then I should be able to use their sick days when I catch it from them.
