Checked in with the family doctor. What a sweetie! Guy is turning into my own private cheering section.
Every time I see him I have NEVER lost enough weight for my own satisifaction. He on the other hand is jumping up and down. 10 pounds this month!!!!! Yeah!!!
Bless him. :)
Anyway, I go to check out and he comes out and says, "Oh, by the way - did you want a flu shot?"
You know I've never had one before and every winter I get some type of cold, achy, sicky kind of thing going on...so, probably not a "bad" idea.
But it involves a needle.
Suck it up, right?
"Okay." I reluctantly say. I've already written the check for my co-pay so I'll have to write a new one to cover the cost of the shot. I ask the receptionist what my new total will be.
"Oh! Insurance pays for it. You don't owe anything extra!"
FREE! Better yet.
I barely turn around and the nurse gives me the injection where I stand.
No changing my mind on that one!
The next day I'm pleased to note that the injection site is normal, no reaction. Wow, what was I fussing about?
48 hours later, I brush my shoulder.
Insert sad face here.
