I wouldn't advise a flu shot unless it is thermasol free. My LLMD says no flu shots!!!

KeepHope - Keep us updated on wether or not the shot worked for you and/or if you have any postive/negative symptoms as a result.

I have never had a flu shot. I just don't want anything shot into me that my body can't handle.

I know this is as important as diverting the flu, but I'd love to try a little botox between my my eyes.... but there is no way I'm shooting botulism into my head... haha.

I got a flu shot and the only thing that happened was a sore arm.

I got a flu shot when I really felt bad....but all it did was make my arm sore.
At least I don't have to worry about that now when I get on a airplane to go home during my treatment.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.
