- I got a flu shot today, and almost immediately began experiencing a strong metallic taste in my mouth. Within twenty minutes, I began to feel woozy. The nurse who administered the shot said she’d never heard of the metallic taste side effect, but advised me to eat and drink something. I did, but both symptoms have continued throughout the day. Only after getting the shot (and starting to experience my weird symptoms) did I have a conversation with a coworker who told me what she knew about the suspected hazards of flu shots (with mercury looking more and more like the culprit for my metallic taste), and now I really wish I hadn’t gotten that damn shot.
- Work is pretty hectic right now, and looks as if it will continue to be hectic for the rest of the month. Can’t really talk about it, but hey! Great timing for NaSoWriMo, right?
- But Rummy is out and Webb is in, so Democrats appear to have the Senate, and we can all wish Donald a fond farewell. That’s at least a halfway decent consolation prize for the shock and frustration that was the landslide passage of Amendment 1 in Tennessee.
Update: Just adding a link, for my future reference, to the entry I went back and found from three years ago when I got a flu shot and also described my state as “woozy.” So… I’m thinking this’ll be my last flu shot.
