On 10/26/13 I got a sore throat and a dry, painful cough. By that evening I had a fever of 102, a tremendous headache and body aches. The fever has recurred over the last 4 days and I am exhausted. These symptoms are exactly like the (confirmed) flu I had 18 years ago. I’ve had a flu vaccine every year since then, having vowed not to ever let that happen again. I’ve always made sure I got my vaccine before Halloween and my intent had been to get it on the very day I became sick. I guess next year I’ll be sure to get the vaccine earlier!
