Last year, I got a flu shot at UT and had no adverse reaction. So, I thought, I'll get another one this year--because I'm in a new place and it'll be cold and there are all these germ-y college people around. So I did. And it blows.
I went to my new doctor last night; she is very cool and her office is, like, an inch away from my house... which is good because I had to stop and rest a couple of times on the way home from the shot. Now, part of my reaction may be my over-active imagination--I could actually feel the bad bits moving through the muscles in my arm. Seriously. And then I got light-headed and then I went to bed at 8:30. I think I even had a fever during the night. Awesome. Now my arm is sore, and I think I still have a fever--I NEVER get fevers. Am wondering if this is the doctor for me. She's obviously trying to kill people.
On a totally unrelated note (possibly induced by random-fever-related-inability-to-think), Neil Patrick Harris is delicious. Loved him in Doogie, loved him in Harold and Kumar, love him in "How I Met Your Mother." Plus, his bf is yummy. The End.
