Spent a lot of the night reacting to one upset or another.

Got a headache. Took a couple of Tylenols.

Got nauseous. Took my nausea pill. again a bit late since I was trying to sleep and fought it for some absurd reason. Too late to suck on the ginger candy Jill Martis sent me.

Just call me pill popping Papa.

I did some research on the web about side effects of the H1N1 vaccine. Nothing new. But there was a link to what to expect if you get H1N1 and its side effects. below is the table copied straight from the Gov of Canada web site.

Almost Always: Common: Sometimes:
Sudden onset of:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Sore throat
  • Decreased appetite
  • Muscle aches
  • Headache
  • Runny nose
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

I felt better when I saw this list. Not that I have H1N1, but I wonder if it possible to show these symptoms because of the vaccine.

There is a lot of hype about whether to get the vaccine or not, I decided I had little choice. A compromised immune system leaves you feeling,  at the very least, more vulnerable to anything that is making the rounds. It does not help that this thing seems to spread so very easily.

It takes a while for people to start exercising better hygiene. Washing hands is a must. I still see people leaving washrooms without washing their hands. I bring this to their attention once in a while. You almost always have to brace yourself for a fight. One guy called me the hand washing police. I see other people just soak their hand under water. No soap. Useless.

Washing hands is one of the simplest ways of stopping infections. Why is it so hard for people to do that?

We were supposed to visit Janet’s latest project yesterday. You can check it out here. They have created this bakeshop where people bring in their children and they bake these things. The place is booked solid and packed to the gills. We were planning on going there today. Nancy just called to say that the store is packed with people which means only one thing. I cannot go in and risk the exposure.

This is a stupid life.
