I got the Flu

I somehow got Influenza again, so if your counting thats me getting the flu twice this year. The first time i got the flu my body was aching for about one week, and then i got a cold because of it, that went away two months later. Did you know that the flu kills about 36,000 people a year. I couldn’t find for sure but i bet thats because they got something else because of the flu. But anyways, thats a lot of people dying because of some stupid disease.

I was told that you can’t get the same flu twice. Your body learns how to protect your body from that flu, so it can’t touch you. But a little bit different strain can. When you get a flu shot, that shot only protects you from %80 of the flu that season. The best time to get a flu shot is in november or october.

I got the flu and a couple of days later i got a little present and now i am getting a runny nose. Posting is going to be a little less sparse until i can think better or get the energy to write something.

In the meantime you can check out my photoblog at http://photo.wordpress.com/ and leave some comments if you like any of the pictures.
