I Did Not Get A Flu Shot This Year

Updated on October 16, 2013

I'm sitting on the examination table at my Doctor's office. It's nothing serious. As a diabetic, I get blood work done every three months.This is just a review. He is reviewing the results as I sit nervously. I dislike going to any kind of doctor. "Everything appears to be fine Mrpooper. The only thing we need to do is give you a flu shot."

"Doc, I can't get a flu shot", I replied. "And why not?" " I'm allergic to it." "Allergic? You didn't mention this last year after your shot." "I know Doc, but trust me, I can't get a flu shot."
The doctor removed his glasses and stared at me. "Is there something you aren't telling me?"he asked. " Well, it seems I became very aggressive and violent after the shot last year" " What did you do?' " I went on a killing spree. Those bodies that they found over the winter, it was me. I've only recently returned to normal"

The doctor stared at me a little longer. His eyes lit up and he started to smile. His smile turned into a giggle as he got up out of his chair and danced around the room. " Doc", I said. "What are you doing?" ' It worked! It worked!" " Again I asked. "What worked?" "MrPooper", he started, "You were part of my experiment. That wasn't a flu shot last year. It was a mind altering drug. I've been commissioned by the Government to create the ultimate soldier. You were my latest test subject."

My face became flush with anger. My hands clinched into fists. I beat that doctor to death. Yes, he created the ultimate soldier and I must continue my work. The only thing that can stop me is the flu!

      Haha, that was funny. Many children - while perhaps not becoming autistic - do have temporary to long-term behavioral changes! Mine did and (yes, fry me) my homeopath gave a homeopathic dose of the problematic vaccine and it went away immediately! I do not get a flu shot as they determine what the "next big thing" will be over a year in advance. And I have a doctor (not my homeopath) who said it's one of the many ways we are downing our immune system. That's not scientifically proven (but then who's studied it and what sort of study could you possibly set up considering the wide variety of human immune responses) but either it's the media or doesn't it seem that the more flu shots that are commissioned for us, the worse the flu "season" is? Every year seems to be the worst season yet.
