Oct. 24th, 2008 @ 06:58 pm I burn with sickness!
Yesterday, visited the doctor and got flu and pneumonia vaccines. Now, my armpit hurts like hell, I have a palm-sized bruise on my arm, and I alternately shiver and broil as my body fights against the mere corpses of influenza and pneumonia.

At least the nurse didn't soothe me with lies beforehand. I'm looking at you, giantlaser.

Dude, it only hurts if you're a pussy. Look, was it really any worse than the adrenaline-syringe-to-the-heart scene in Pulp Fiction?

I've never gotten a pneumonia vaccine, but I've gotten flu vaccines and never had a problem. Compared to donating blood and giving blood samples, which are by far the most common reasons I'm poked with needles, the flu shot doesn't even hurt. Feels more like a stinging nettle than a needle.

Are you sure the nurse didn't punch you first?
